Maria Grazia Chiuri’s show for Dior during PFW features clashing check prints, leather looks and boyish bucket hats, evoking a grunge-glamour aesthetic.
With the vocals of Amy Winehouse ringing through the room and the slogan ‘Sisterhood Global’ displayed on the first look, it’s clear Maria Grazia Chiuri is making a statement with her latest Christian Dior show.
Dior explained before the PFW show began that the collection took inspiration from a poem by Tomaso Binga about a woman who choses a masculine pseudonym to parody the privileges reserved to men. A sentiment that was clearly portrayed throughout the collection.
Within Dior’s Autumn/Winter 2019 line, traditionally male garments and shades were mixed with feminine shapes. While the oversized jackets and bucket hats hid the models’ womanly features, oversized waist-clinching belts accentuated their feminine form.
Models even adopted a somewhat-masculine march as they sported dark-hued workwear and leather-look shirts down the catwalk.
Elsewhere, Dior clashed and layered check prints in shades of khaki green, mahogany red and monochrome. The grungy looks were balanced with a touch of glamour via pearl necklaces.
