Maria Grazia Chiuri Takes Inspiration From BLACKPINK for Dior’s Pre-Fall 2021 Collection
A playful range that mirrors the vibrant nature of K-pop.
Following up on the Spring/Summer 2021 season, Maria Grazia Chiuri has now unveiled a series of bold and vibrant visuals for Dior‘s Pre-Fall 2021 range. Another fashion collection showcased amidst a pandemic, the lineup brings the creative director back to the beginnings of her career, when things were a lot simpler.
Based on Christian Dior‘s leopard print trench coat from the ’50s, the collection fuses classic designs from the house with today’s global phenomenon: K-pop. More specifically taking inspiration from BLACKPINK, the lineup features all things bright, fun and playful, as seen on casual silhouettes such as loose-fitted dresses and jumpsuits. The range builds on with further influences from names like Andy Warhol, Richard Hamilton and Marco Lodola.
Dior’s iconic looks are reinterpreted into new designs. The Bar jacket is transformed into an anorak, while more Gen Z-focused looks appear on Oblique-emblazoned tracksuits and PVC raincoats. Nostalgic prints and patterns are added to the mix, with colorful plaid splashed onto tennis skirts, cardigans, caps and the Book Tote.
