Dior Presents Its Chic Fall 2018 Collection Inspired by Vintage Silhouettes

Offering a surreal take on womenswear.

Dior‘s Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri presents the fashion house’s Fall 2018 collection as a surreal take on womenswear. The range is inspired by the rediscovery of the work of writer, photographer and activist Claude Cahun. The fashion house’s seasonal theme showcases precise cuts filled with a hint of edge.

Significant pieces throughout the range include structured dresses, satin skirts and masculine coats. Chiuri’s Fall 2018 collection visually shows the duality of masculine silhouettes created for women. Additionally, she calls upon the French fashion which was prevalent following the Second World War. During this period, Christian Dior was noted for creating designs which “gave women back the pleasure of their femininity.”

The female body is the centerpiece of the seasonal collection. A nod to Cahun arrives in the form of a shirt with a collar reminiscent of a shirt collar worn by the creator. Also seen are numerous evening gowns which feature embroideries and exquisite sequins. Accessories in the collection include the blue iteration of the Embroidered Book Tote, leather handbags with gold-tone hardware and chic hats.

Maria Grazia Chiuri shares her thoughts in an exclusive statement on what she looked to while creating the range:

“I wanted to take on the precision of the basics and materials that make up a man’s wardrobe. I sought to showcase the least explored part of Christian Dior’s legacy, an almost austere part, with the use of masculine fabrics and jackets, coats and shirts with rigorous lines. In the same way, I became interested in the work of Hedi Slimane with Petite Taille for Women, when he was Creative Director of Dior Homme.”
