Dior Deliveres Surreal Beauty for its 70th Anniversary at Paris Couture Fashion Week

Dior took its audience on July 3 on a surreal journey for Paris Couture Fashion Week SS 2018. Showcased at Hotel Des Invalides, the organizers secluded beautiful wood sculptures of wild African animals into an exotic garden, to host Maria Grazia Chiuri’s take on Dior 70th anniversary. The designer went back in time for this Couture collection and styled silhouettes of the 50’s into dashing sophisticated looks, and delivered in the end an outstanding collection. The impression is undoubtedly in favor and highly satisfying.

On the runway, gray proved to be highly resourceful and surprised with its ability to deliver such sophistication. The fabric matters a great deal to this affair, so as the shape and cuts, but then we’re talking about 50’s tailored look, which leaves little space for mistakes, even when explored 70 years later. Revisiting the past, Maria Grazia Chiuri has chosen to execute into modern approaches a handful of well-known pieces such as the full skirt style dress, the must-have gloves, hats, and wool fabric. Coats had their say too, being displayed on top of flowy dresses and paired with then labeled as man’s hats, today known as Fedora.

Dior’s established disposition towards fine dresses and flowy fabrics completed the collection.

Fendi Had A Legends & Fairy Tales Fashion Show For Its 90th Anniversary In Rome

Fendi celebrated its 90th anniversary with an exquisite Legends & Fairy Tales fashion show in Rome, July 7. I am saying exquisite because it was exactly like that, if not even more. With Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi as creative directors, the collection exceeds the moment’s creativity and style, going forward and above. There’s something deeply delicious, perfect and artistic to all of the pieces from the collection, from big pieces to the smallest details.

Embroidery and fluffy applications played an important part in making this collection, so as mixing different details and colours for different parts of the piece, together in one look. Embroidery looked childish and fantasy like, with golden long haired princesses, castles and riders, flowers and trees. Applications were colourful, fluffy and used in building embroidered scenery, or used in building an entire piece.
