Dior’s Spring 2018 Paris Fashion Week show took place on Tuesday, September 26th in a specially constructed grotto on the Musée Rodin’s grounds. The venue had a gothic, cave-like feel to it setting the stage for a politically driven show.
This is Maria Grazia Chiuri’s second collection with the Dior. The first collection was a massive success, revealing the “We Should All Be Feminists” t-shirts which became coveted by fashion obsessed men and women everywhere. Her latest collection was just as charged with feminist beliefs and ideas.
Replacing and improving the “We Should All Be Feminists” tee is this striped long sleeve “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists” shirt. The saying depicts Chiuri’s idea that women are celebrated for succeeding in doing a “man’s job” but aren’t often celebrated for being talented and creative on their own accord, without drawing attention to their gender.
I feel like Wednesday Adams would wear this if she were to shop at Dior. This look is equal parts Gothic and pilgrim-esque and we love it. Flat lace up boots were paired with over-the-knee striped socks for a daring look. The ensemble also featured a black wide brimmed hat and black dress with a white round bib.
This look screams Parisian vibes with a polkadot sheer dress and black beret complete with a mesh netting over the model’s face. Are these boots going to become the “IT” shoe of the season? We think so.
Showing that Dior has never been afraid of color, this yellow and black ensemble was vibrant and bold. The striped bodysuit featured the “Christian Dior” labeled straps that Dior has become famous for. The bodysuit was paired with a long lace and tulle skirt, a yellow purse, and once again, those killer boots.
Mirroring the mosaic glass of the grotto, this unique look closed the show. The embellished bustier looked like broken glass and was paired with a long skirt and a black bow belted at the waist.
Choir’s second collection for Dior echoed her fierce drive for the equality of women and is sure to become just as iconic as her first collection.
