“Sisterhood is Global” read the T-shirt of the first fw2019 look. The title of a book by Robin Morgan, the American second-wave feminist activist and author, who happened to be in the audience attending the show. And it was already clear we were in for another feminism themed show by Maria Grazia Chiuri. The rest of the fw story spoke of elegant strapless dresses, perfect blazers (like we’ve seen in previous collections) and delicate waist belts. New was the tartan theme that had black/white, black/red and black/green checks all throughout the collection. Nothing says feminism like a pair of quilted pants and a bad ass heavy leather jacket. Also new: the boxy blazers and the rain hats. A perfect contrast with the long, delicate, tulle dresses with embroidered 3D florals. There were no more slogan Tees in the rest of the collection and Chiuri also slowed down on the logomania part. But there was enough signature Dior to wishlist for the next season.
