Five women Surrealist artists at the heart of the inspirations of the Autumn-Winter 2020-2021 haute couture collection: Lee Miller, Dorothea Tanning, Leonora Carrington, Dora Maar and Jacqueline Lamba.
“Surrealist images manage to make visible what is in itself invisible. I’m interested in mystery and magic, which are also a way of exorcising uncertainty about the future,” says Maria Grazia Chiuri of her autumn-winter 2020-2021 haute couture collection.
In this unprecedented period still marked by the confinement, Maria Grazia Chiuri has designed her autumn-winter 2020-2021 haute couture creations in the light of the Théâtre de la mode. This unique event, initiated in 1945, at the end of the Second World War, aimed to make French couture shine around the world, at a time when the textile industry, the organization of transport and the presentation of collections were completely disrupted; luxury being above all a story of emotion and dreams, an eternal emblem of poetry and joie de vivre. Perpetuating the spirit of this reinvention in the name of creative energy, the Creative Director of Dior women’s collections chose to produce thirty-seven miniature haute couture silhouettes, embodying the quintessence of the excellence in the Dior Ateliers.
