Again, Maria Grazia Chiuri proves art and fashion perfectly merge. Modern artists have marked her clothes with historic references several times now. For Dior’s haute couture presentation, it wasn’t different. For the occasion, visual artist Eva Jospin created the Silk Chamber, the perfect setting for this collection made with craftsmanship – a great start of Paris Haute Couture Week, after many digital shows last season. The drapes, pleats, airy silhouettes and embroideries performed well in a real life setting.
