The botanical set
170 is the number of trees that were present on the podium of the Dior Spring-Summer 2020 show. By bringing together so many conifers on the catwalk, Maria Grazia Chiuri wanted to make fashion more aware of the climate emergency, but also to highlight the know-how of the collective Coloco. On the sidelines of the show, the latter will plant the trees in three different destinations on the outskirts of Paris. The guests had the opportunity to scan a QR code on the labels of each tree to find out where it would be replanted.
The sewing planter
Unveiling a couture botanical wardrobe, the designer imagined outfits of planters upgraded delicate details embroidered, redefining the codes of the house. The influence? Photographs of Catherine Dior or Miss Dior - Christian Dior's sister - showing her among her flowers, in her garden, her passion. She is a gardener in the most complete and profound sense of the term, a free, independent woman, acting in harmony with the breath of nature and the cycle of the seasons. The first perfume of the House is named, in his honor.
The culmination of this show redefines the word "rustic": a big evening dress made entirely of straw. The latter was also available on hats dressing the heads of models, or sparingly on timeless logotype sneakers.
The tie and dye
While the tie and dye made a noticed comeback in the dressage of fashionistas last summer, it seems that the trend is confirmed next summer. The print was thus affixed denim or retro way on evening dresses, jumpsuits or sahariennes. A new interpretation that is reminiscent of the color code of the Woodstock Festival.
Available in a lace-up version, with sneakers and espadrille soles, the sandals were the stars of this show. Sitting next to a slew of calibrated accessories, they came to sublimate the evening dresses, overalls and other combinations.
