Maria Grazia Chiuri presented Dior Fall 2021 collection at the Long Museum West Bund during the ongoing Shanghai Fashion Week. Celebrating the House’s creativity and the power of world cultures, the show represents an extraordinary opportunity to infuse her creations with a visual force in motion and a new energy.
Singer Joey Yung and the Chinese rock group Black Panther gave exceptional live performances, as a final surprise.
The show reinterprets a range of themes and revisits the Dior vocabulary with a transversal Pop aesthetic, from Richard Hamilton’s English Pop to the rather acidic New Futurism of Marco Lodola.
The collection features acid hues, and plays with the transparency, and shiny and silvery reflections, celebrating the Pop aesthetic. Embroideries are enhanced with giant sequins, like mirror discs, recalling the faceted disco balls punctuating the show’s set and illuminating four brand new dresses. An invitation to freedom, the leopard print adorning the catwalk crops up on a range of pieces including the iconic Bar jacket.
A series of exclusive models, each in a different neon hue — as well as red, which Monsieur Dior considered “the color of life” – also enrich a collection presented to a musical composition by Giorgio Moroder.
