THE EXPERIENCE OF DANCE, ITS MOST INTIMATE TRUTH, THE FACT THAT IT IS A MEANS OF UNIVERSAL EXPRESSION, AND THE RADICALLY OF THE GESTURES OF CONTEMPORARY DANCE HAVE ALL STIMULATED MY IMAGINATION ~ MARIA GRAZIA CHIURI ~
“The story comes from inside the body,” an enormous Sharon Eyal quote printed on the exterior of this season’s Christian Dior show space. Pina Bausch once said “I’m not interested in how people move, I’m interested in what makes them move” . The two women, dancers and choreographers, inspired Maria Grazia Chiuri’s spring/summer 2019 designs.
It all started with a solo dance, then the models started walking between the dancers the entire show. The designer opened the show with a black jersey dress before sending out a shimmering run of skin-tone looks followed by muted greens, grey, ivory and navy blues.
I loved this collection because of all the choices Dior presented, from Tulle tutus to braided ballerina shoes to fishnet body stockings to the sort of ombré knitwear and tie-dye trousers and masculine costumes (tank tops, cargo pants, the occasional denim jacket slung over a floaty dress), the collection presented a thoroughly comprehensive vision of dance wear.
As elegant as a layer of tulle, with the corset replaced by a simple tank top the designer Maria Grazia Chiuri’s soft and supple 87-piece show in monochrome and nude.
Few risks were taken in this collection, but this didn’t matter since the inspiration and aim of this season collection was being simple and feminine.
In this collection Maria Grazia selected a muted palette, elegant drapery, greige tailoring and a lightness of finish.
Grazia also presented a bold neutral accessories a long with big Bags and the famous Saddle Bag.
