Dior’s Fall 2023 is at its heart, a testament to Chiuri’s vision of expressing the feelings and emotions that connect us to a country and its culture. Situated in the sun-soaked city of Mumbai, the show’s setting creates the perfect backdrop to display the maison’s expert craftmanship. Grand, ornate, and intricate — the set design shines amidst the cityscape.
Through the silhouettes, the Creative Director of Dior womenswear celebrates the plurality of the most excellent savoir-faire, allowing the visionary spirit of the founding couturier and his successors to shine far and wide.
One of the most remarkable elements of the collection is the color block sequence dedicated to silks – green, yellow, pink, and purple – paying homage to Marc Bohan. The sophisticated evening coats and straight skirts inspired by the sari and traditional Indian cuts represent an actual sartorial genealogy defined by the multiple legacies of fashion.
Chiuri’s collaboration with Karishma Swali, Artistic Director of the Chanakya ateliers and the non-profit Chanakya School of Craft, in Mumbai, is a fascinating odyssey that transcends borders and eras. It’s a beautiful way of spotlighting the rich cultural heritage of India while embracing Dior’s legacy of timeless elegance and innovation.
