The legendary ‘Bar’ jacket, an ever-evolving Dior icon since 1947, has been invented anew for Autumn-Winter 2020-2021 by Maria Grazia Chiuri in a contemporary and elegant knitted version.
An architectural work that has stood the test of time, an eternal symbol of the New Look, the ‘Bar’ jacket sealed Christian Dior’s success in 1947, when it appeared in his first Haute Couture collection.
At the Fall-Winter 2020-2021 show, the opening look was none other than this emblematic piece, revisited by Maria Grazia Chiuri in a new knit version.
This virtuoso reinterpretation presented a challenge for the House’s ateliers, which developed no fewer than four prototypes in order to accurately recreate the volume and cut that characterize the original jacket. This new object of desire combines elegance and comfort, freedom and movement, with a casual style that elevates allure.
A reflection of Dior‘s ultra-modernity, this must-have once again transcends fashions and generations, affirming its iconic status.
