“Are clothes modern?”: this is the question Christian Dior put at the beginning of its Haute Couture show in Paris. On a white, clean dress, long and closed with a simple belt, in a modern version of ancient Greece style - which is the quintessence of an aesthetic never get dispersed and still actual nowadays. It’s not modern, it’s classy. Classy as much as Bernard Rudovsky’s favorite style: architect and historia from the US, Rudovsky’s work was interested into fashion and its controversial world, and he has been the former guide to Chiuri’s work.

The following collection is composed of black clothes, with some grey, silver and golden elements. Clean, in shape and colours, it is a sort of empty canvas on which write. Details are indeed the elements changing the game, transforming what is classy into something modern and trendy. They are all fragile details, blooming on structured fabrics. Lace, on thighs and capes; feathers in black and elegant deep petrol green; veils of net, to make every model a spouse. Shoes are basically slave sandals or black stiletto. Jewelers are gold and pearls, with a tribal elegant touch - this is something Maria Grazie Chiuri is really into lately.

Together with the idea od dress as white canvas, the collection developed the meet between fashion and architecture. Clothes are the first protection we have to the outside world, and they are the reality we inhabit firstly. It is not by chance that the last model wore nothing but a paper reproduction of 30 avenue Montaigne, Dior’s live core. All the previous looks as well are made up with protective garments, stiff and structured. Architectural.
