This temporary space showcases a selection of ready-to-wear and accessories from the House’s Spring-Summer 2019 collection. Like an homage to the avant-garde experiments of the dancer Loïe Fuller, one of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s muses, kaleidoscopic prints feature in all of its windows. The product offer includes an exclusive Saddle-inspired belt bag in the Dior Oblique canvas, in a variation of the curves of the Saddle bag, an iconic accessory that is also revisited in leather or denim embellished with kaleidoscope tie-dye motifs and displayed alongside the Dior Book Tote.
These hypnotic motifs – reinterpreted in a blue version – appear on several pieces from the Dior Maison collection. Available by special order, in a limited edition run, the Corolle cordless lamps by the French designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance are also presented in delicate shades of amber and pink.
Maria Grazia Chiuri attended two special performances inspired by the ballet Nuit Blanche – an homage to the composer Philip Glass that was staged at the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome from March 29th to April 2nd. These performances featured Eleonora Abbagnato, the Director of Ballet at the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome and an étoile at the Opéra National de Paris, as well as two couples. For the first staging, the dancers wore costumes specially designed by the Artistic Director; in the second, they donned looks from the Spring-Summer 2019 collection.
