Resort collection Christian Dior
The team of Christian Dior every year invites its guests and fans to an unusual journey, often recalling the heritage of the fashion designer Christian Dior during the cruise collection show and giving him a new reading. In early spring, it became known that the venue for the fashion show this year will be the castle Domaine de Chantilly, which is located near Paris. The castle of the XVIII century is a symbol of the French aristocracy and national treasure of France. Near it there is a racetrack where since the year 1843 every second Sunday in June has been racing. That is why the leitmotif of the collection was rodeo and equestrian aesthetics. Surprise for all guests became weather conditions: the whole show was accompanied by torrential rain, leaving on the outfits wet spots. Despite this, the brand did not cancel the show and with humor stated that the rain was necessary for the collection entourage. Collection Resort 2019 season under the direction of Maria Grazia Currie took place in a large estate of Chantilly stables, which he called a symbol of Christian Dior French skills to live and not just devoted to him their dresses.
The main source of inspiration for the cruise collection Maria Gracia Chury chose an eskramuzu. Eskaramuza – so called Mexican horsemen, they once achieved the right to participate in traditional rodeos on a par with men, performing complex stunts on horses.
Such a group of 8 eskaramuz in custom dresses Dior opened and closed the show itself, however, instead of Mexican music performance accompanied by live-Seth electric guitars. The rain added a special atmosphere to the show.
Maria Grazia Currie interpret spectacular vintage outfits in the present – skirts in combination with a light lace highlight the duality of their nature, in which the inner strength combined with external tenderness, wide-brimmed hats added to the image of masculinity and bright colors pay tribute to Mexican culture.
It is worth noting also the embroidery in ethno style, which gave outfits eskaramuza sacred meaning, hats, is the crown of the image, wide belts and shoes on a rough sole to protect from dirt. A slight touch of French aristocracy was given to prints resembling painting on porcelain.
