A Secret GardenDior Haute Couture SS17

The labyrinth; irregular, almost impenetrable, like a secret garden. This is the image that inspired Maria Grazia Chiuri, Artistic Director of the women’s collections for the house of Dior, for her first Haute Couture season. Evening dresses in changeant and powdery colours which evoke the passing of the seasons and of life itself, and whose layers of tulle trap exquisite flowers, like those we preserve in our most prized herbariums. Memory is the driving force shaping a new story that rewrites the House’s lexicon, translating it into shapes and cuts that are the imprint of the silhouettes, dreams and desires of today’s women.
