On the streets of Paris you can see the powerful impact of Dior’s artistic director, Italian-born Maria Grazia Chuiri. In her first collection she visibly branded dresses, shoes and handbags with four little letters that spelled D-I-O-R. Guests at the 2017 autumn-winter collection show you how it’s worn.
Say D-I-O-R after me
Not once, but three times a Lady Dior. From the 2017 spring-summer collection, the most famous word in Paris is visible on the black kitten-heel shoes, white D-Fence shoulder bag and the black J’Adore bag. And those mirrored sun specs are unmistakably Dior Nightfall.
In love with dove grey
The greys that colour the skies of Paris are part of the language of Dior. The message here: a chic tweed dress with a snug fox fur and pretty rose-encrusted sandals is impossibly chic.
Black and white is Eternal
One of China’s favourite media personalities Linda Li with her trademark megawatt smile! Her ‘boy-meets-girl’ outfit is a combination of contrasts: a masculine jacket worn with a feminine chiffon ruffled skirt. The combination will take you anywhere. Nicole Warne (Gary Pepper Girl) sets off a black skirt with a white Dior fencing jacket.
Baby you’re a Doll
Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) fashion influencer, IT girl and shoe designer left photographers breathless when she appeared in her nearly-nude ballerina dress. Lena Perminova took the second option: ladylike.
We love the vixen-chic of this flame orange ruffle collar with a hint of hippie-chic in the swinging, fringed skirt. And Daisy Dai (former Miss Hong Kong 2016) is channeling the 60s in her white fur coat.
