Turning to the wonders of embroidery, the French house unveils its newest couture line.
Now, while you may still be basking in the scenes born out of the Men’s Fashion festivities that have filled the last few weeks, it is time to swiftly turn your attention to the world of haute couture, as shows filled with beautifully hand-crafted finery commence. And one of the names kicking off the affair is Dior.
With Maria Grazia Chiuri heading up the SS2 collection, elegance was both expected and delivered by an army of models layered in floor-grazing gowns and asymmetric bodysuits. Collaboration prevailed, however, as Chiuri called on the house’s respected codes, as well as her own vision of the Dior woman, and lent them to Indian artists Madhvi and Manu Parekh, the Chanakya Atelier and the Chanakya School of Craft, all of whom worked on the garments in question.
And, as with many fashion displays, a singular focus point centred the French house’s SS22 couture collection, and this was the delicate-yet-robust, beautiful-yet-bold nature of the atelier’s most beloved technique: embroidery. While used to craft the ornate geometric patterning encasing the line’s midnight black bodysuits, or to embellish delicate lacey skirts, the craft was also called upon in a structural capacity. With the fabrics of the collection finding depth and architecture from the embroidery, that beloved attention to detail and bespoke, hand-crafted nature desired from any haute couture line presents itself, captivating those who are lucky enough to witness it in motion.
