Haute Couture Spring 2017 Collection
Maria Grazia Chiuri made her couture debut at Dior today in Paris. The collection, presented on a sylvan set in the grounds of the Musée Rodin, was an enchanted take on house codes, from the Bar jacket to the femme fleur, infused with some of Chiuri’s own magical inspirations. Unlike the sleek, modernist designs of her predecessor, Raf Simons, Chiuri’s collection edged into the romantic and whimsical, with semi-sheer dresses, floating pastel skirts, and feathered headpieces that evoked woodland goddesses.
The show opened with a series of black Bar jacket ensembles, many featuring draped hoods. The non-hooded looks were topped off with equally enchanting face masks in the shape of butterflies, bats, and other insects.
From masks, came headpieces. Some were towering and feathered, others were small crowns of flowers and fauna. The natural elements continued in the jewelry, with many looks featuring large chokers with snake or butterfly emblems at the front.
Dior makeup creative director Peter Philips loves to make women look beautiful. At Monday’s Dior Haute Couture runway show, he succeeded at doing exactly that. For the creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s first couture collection for the label, the hair and makeup combined elements of ethereal, soft beauty with a tougher, more punk-y aesthetic. The overall effect was breathtakingly beautiful, but what’s more is that Philips, true to form, didn’t shy away from embracing the models individuality to get there.
The hair, styled by Guido, channeled many of those same themes, with windblown, romantic textures, individualized styles and show-stopping accessories.
