From ethereal dancers to industrial airport hangars, Paris and Milan fashion week gave us plenty to delight in and much sartorial food for thought.
If you thought Dior had reimagined drama for Resort 2019, featuring women horseback riders from the Mexican rodeo circuit, then this show further cemented creative head Maria Grazia Chiuri’s fantastical vision. Within Dior’s black box runway, a theatrical piece of conceptual dance unfolded before a collection that celebrated her idea of ‘freedom’. In Chiuri’s words: “I think that dance and fashion are very close, for they both speak about the body. Modern choreographers speak about freedom.”
While ballet is a part of the DNA of this classic house of fashion, Tel-Aviv based dancer Sharon Eyal’s performance truly set the stage for a collection that explored movement and freedom. With a shift in Dior’s approach to silhouettes and cuts, corsets and wiring gave way to jersey, khaki and tulle, showing a more relaxed approach.
