Dior presents the Dior Haute Couture Spring Summer 2024 Collection
Like a bewitching Ariadne’s thread, the notion of “aura” infuses the entire Dior haute couture spring-summer 2024 collection dreamed up by Maria Grazia Chiuri.
Exploring the plural beauty of textiles, the Creative Director has initiated a captivating, inventive dialogue with Isabella Ducrot, who conceived the show’s scenography entitled Big Aura: twenty-three disproportionate silhouettes are arranged on a grid of irregular black lines recalling warp and weft. A symbol of the aura and uniqueness suffusing each haute couture piece.
Sublimated by refined moiré, an effect dear to Christian Dior, the outfits reinterpret La Cigale – thought up by Monsieur Dior for autumn-winter 1952 –, revisiting thus the House’s archives to bring contemporary looks to life. By turns, the creations form an architectural elegance: coats with imposing collars, wide skirts revealing exaggerated cut-outs, layering, pants and jackets. Certain garments in velvet magnify the allure and move fluidly, while a sumptuous feather cape sits upon a dress in embroidered double organza.
A marvelous odyssey, expressing the auratic, sculptural and metamorphic value of haute couture.
