Well… to be completely honest… I’m trying to gather the words to describe this collection… I’ve seen worse but not many. This collection is supposed to be dedicated to 3 remarkable women: Catherine Dior, Edith Piaf and Juliette Gréco. Nothing in this collection resembles, even from far, looks what these women had.
It looks like once again Dior let Maria Grazia Chiuri out… And what have we’ve got: ugly oversized winter jackets, marina t-shirts, white blouses with black neck-ties, some weird washed leopard prints on coats and skirts, Paris map prints leftover from previous Spring Summer 2023 collection, Italian bra-outerwear, long badly tailored black skirts, and classic Dior dresses.
This collection looked even uglier in an absolutely outstanding installation by Joana Vasconcelos. A miracle wonder, the beautiful Valkiria installation by this artist was the only marvel to look at. And invited guests were looking.
I haven’t seen so many people who didn’t take photos or videos at the show, people who were messaging without looking at the show, people who were whispering “Oh… that is not good”…
But apparently Maria Grazia Chiuri felt very happy about the show, as once again she did what she really wanted – 96 ugly butch looks.
And it feels very sad… well… after all everyone will remember this collection only by its decor.
