Luxury house DIOR presented its Fall Winter 2023 Collection, that pays tribute to three extraordinary women Catherine Dior, Édith Piaf, and Juliette Gréco, on February 28th, during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week. The collection reimagines the 1950s fashion and explores the brand’s heritage as well as French style. The three figures designer Maria Grazia Chiuri focused on – Catherine Dior, Édith Piaf, and Juliette Gréco, all shared an independent spirit, and each of them was able to subvert feminine stereotypes that were part of the post-war mind set. For the season Dior captures femininity that goes against the grain, at once strong and fragile.
FALL WINTER 2023.24 WOMENSWEAR COLLECTIONS
“The floral motifs chosen by Monsieur Dior have been revisited: mottled fabric is interwoven with a metallic thread that breathes life into the fabric, rendering it malleable, erasing contours to obtain an abstract effect. Primary colors take center stage: ruby, emerald, topaz yellow, blue. Delicately nuanced tartan fabrics distinguish coats, jackets and straight skirts, which can also be worn beneath large coats, like the “corolle” skirts. Poplin also shimmers with metallic thread. Embroidery composes little bursts of light. Celebrating the kaleidoscopic image of a femininity outlined by powerful icons, inhabited with awareness, these creations suggest emotional paths for the new generations of women shaping our future.” – from Dior
