Dior AW22-2023: backstage focus

Go behind the scenes of Dior AW22 by Maria Grazia Chiuri to see some of the collection’s diverse interpretations of futuristic form and function.

Elbow-length gloves that get a colorful, high-tech reworking are emblazoned with the legend ‘The Next Era‘ and are part of the season’s collaboration with @DAirLabOfficial, as is a high-tech bolero reduced to its inventive basics in an airbag and strap construction.

Meanwhile, an adaptation of a Roger Vivier pump designed for the House in the 1950s is paired with fishnets richly embroidered with coral-colored beads.

* D-Air lab is an Italian start-up founded in 2015 by Lino Dainese. Architect Silvia Dainese Gris is leading this special project for Dior.
