Designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the collection is a love letter to the atelier.
Dior wants you to rethink the possibilities of embroidery. For the fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2022 couture collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior’s women’s collections, paid tribute to the atelier. In the garden of the Musée Rodin in Paris, embroidery was not “merely a decorative detail” but an emblem of the craftsmanship of haute couture.
A signature of the collection, embroidered tights can be seen under a grisaille-bedecked grey suit, evening dresses and draped leotards. Elsewhere, an embroidered fishnet vest over a long silk crepe skirt; a jacket set embroidered with a paving of sand-colored ‘Nacrolac’ patterns; an Erening dress in ecru silk tulle embroidered with ‘vermicelli’ diamond shapes of cream satin tubes and tassels of fine pearls — you get the picture.
