The magnificent Dior cruise 2018 show by Maria Grazia Chiuri took place in the heart of the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in Los Angeles, with a backdrop of wilderness as far as the eye can see.
The celebration of instinct leads her to female figures who have chosen to isolate themselves in the desert to better understand the deepest and darkest recesses of the self. Such is the image of an artist like Georgia O’Keeffe. The laid-back, Wild West-infused collection paired perfectly with its Californian backdrop.
Celebrities like Charlize Theron, Rihanna, Miranda Kerr, Solange Knowles, Haley Bennett and Kate Bosworth were seated front row, all dressed in Dior.
The truly spectacular collection featured extraordinary silk jacquards where the ocher, almost gold in color, contrasts with blacks. Female handprints, reinterpretations of the original forms, become magnificent sequined embroideries in earthy shades. The details included raffia, pompoms and sequins, defined pleats and feather adorned tulle.
Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup Peter Philips designed a minimal yet sun-kissed look for the show. See the lineup below.
