Christian Dior Cruise 2018
Undoubtedly, all eyes are on creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri as she prepares to debut her second Dior collection. The precise occasion is Dior Couture and the location is not at all what one expects from the famous French fashion house. Perhaps this is a facet of the new Dior under complete LVMH ownership. Guests join the Chiuri in Calabasas, California. Situated near the increasingly popular fashion capital of LA, the venue isn’t the only surprise of Dior Couture 2018. The true ingenuity is on the runway.
The Dior Cruise Theme:
It was like a scene from a Hollywood movie. Floating in the background are two hot air balloons with the words “Dior Sauvage.” Meanwhile guests indulge on an overflowing tap of Moet champagne – compliments of waitstaff.
The Dior Cruise Clothes:
Dior cruise ’18 is inspired by a primitive, almost artifactual aesthetic. On the runway models showcase an array of all-terrain high-fashion clothing. Rooted in a rugged, Western motif Dior couture proposes a new kind of feminine dressing. The color palette adds to the style mantra referencing sand tone browns, creamy whites, soft nudes.
Totaling, more than 80 runway looks, Maria Grazia Chiuri certainly isn’t lacking ideas. Offering a diverse assortment of dresses, separates, and accessories there are plenty of inspiring moments. Collection standouts include brocade bustier dresses, leather mojo jackets, couture-like feather dresses and dreamy tulle skirts. The newly appointed designer even finds time for outerwear offering leather mojo jackets and oversize fringe cardigans.
