Dior decided to sing the blues during the reveal of the new Fall/Winter 2017-2018 collection at Paris Fashion Week. Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director for Dior, may have just started her work but she already decided to make a tribute to the designer’s favorite color by having the pieces on the darker side to the blue tone and adding other neutral tones of dark grey. Maria decided her very first task after beginning to design for Dior was bring a new look to this brand, daywear.
A particular fabric that was seen throughout the collection was denim. Adding to the blue theme, this collection included many carpenter jeans and button up jean tops and full out one piece suits. This collection gave modern appeal to the usual avant-garde very feminine type pieces’ people are used to seeing from this brand. The feel from many looks at this collection walking down the runway was genderless, which was the vibe Chiuri was trying to give off with neutral blue color and many one piece or pantsuit outfits, including the opening piece. The runway show started off with a hooded cashmere jacket with a belt with matching cropped trousers. She also referenced a militaristic devotion with full up button jackets and many shirts button up to the collar.
Chiuri is known for expressing views through her clothes adding different logos and quotes on her clothing, but with this collection, the logo mania was calmed down. The only form of words was seen in the Dior logo that was present but subtle hidden in places such as straps, bags, and small choker necklaces. Along with accessories, each model was seen sporting a leather beret that gave a cool French edge appeal.
