Dior opened Paris Fashion Week with a spectacular show for the FW24 season in the French capital this afternoon.

The house’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri was inspired by Dior’s archives from the late 1960s for the new collection. 

It was a time, as the show notes explain,  which saw “a shift from the landscape of the body to that of the globe.” 1967 also saw the launch of the first Miss Dior women’s line, which was a breakthrough ready-to-wear moment for the house. 

According to Dior, the new collection “celebrates the shapes and materials that, when the Miss Dior boutique opened in Paris, gave impetus to a new way of dressing that could unite numerous women and make them all special”.
