Dior Cruise 2017 Collection


Leading the Christian Dior creative team, designer duo Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux presented Dior‘s new Cruise 2017 Collection at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, England, that was also host of Dior haute couture presentations back in 1954 and 1958. The collection was inspired by post-war high society’s wardrobe and with the restlessness that characterized the period – the urge to discover the new.

The conversation between France and England echoes a dialogue between the past and the present, creative exchanges between the two countries. In the eighteenth century, France adopted English fashions in a craze dubbed Anglomania; in the twentieth, the exchange reversed, and French fashions were exported for fevered consumption in Great Britain, none more so than Christian Dior’s New Look. Monsieur Dior frequently turned to the UK for inspiration: his own suits were tailored on Savile Row, and he used the masculinity of fabrics like English wools, Scottish tweeds and Prince of Wales check to underscore the femininity of his creations. Male meeting female, France joining England. Almost seventy years later, the house of Dior pays homage to that ongoing creative and cultural exchange, staging the runway show of the 2017 Cruise Collection in the heart of the English countryside.” – From DIOR
