In the city of Udaipur, a treasure of the Rajasthan state, the looks are staged in a dreamlike setting, reflecting the beauty of the palaces and sumptuous temples that dot the city. The vocabulary of traditional Indian dress is reflected in a series of silk silhouettes in shimmering shades, composed of knotted or straight skirts – worn with tops under coats of architectural cut – and asymmetrical dresses sublimated with virtuoso draping. Long monochrome tunics with minimalist lines, enhanced by side buttons, exalt the graphic purity of black and white.
Elements of Indian landscapes and imagination are sketched in bold prints, including the Indian Animals motif – brandishing a shirt and trouser ensemble – Jardin Indien and Dior Indian Purple, which punctuate silk pajamas with their hypnotic designs. Metamorphosed into precious embroidery and embellishing dresses, skirts or short-sleeved tops, they tell of Maria Grazia Chiuri's fascination with these exceptional techniques and the wealth of textile traditions. An ode to the outstanding hand gesture, at the convergence of art, savoir-faire and couture, which also unfolds on the House's accessories, such as the iconic Dior Book Tote.
A captivating odyssey, perpetuating the passionate ties woven by the House of Dior - from its first fashion show in 1947 - with this fascinating country and its source of inexhaustible inspiration.
