Modern female dancers on stage formed the backdrop of today’s Dior collection presentation. Dressed in neutral shaded bodysuits they perfectly blended in with the SS2019 collection of powder hues and earthy tones. And while we’re discussing the show’s theme the clothes seemed like endless variations to ballets costumes. Even the nude footwear was very much ballet inspired. “I wanted to speak about dance with a different point of view. I think that dance and fashion are very close, for they both speak about the body”, Maria Grazia Chiuri stated. And she’s right. Clothes might say something about fashion taste, they might even speak about political issues, but they surely also always portray a certain image of one’s body. Those slender model bodies were perfectly visible in body tight tops and plisse skirts, in draped nude colored dresses, in tailored suit jackets and macramé creations. Almost all looks were worn with a small, delicate and feminine waist belt to accentuate the female body. Some had the CD logo on them as a little branded extra. The logo popped up on bags and bag straps too, but gone were the slogan/logo T-shirts that spread the feminism message so loudly over the last few seasons. Floral wallpaper prints looked dreamy and those handmade macramé details seemed like a lot of work. A structured tulle gown formed the finale piece, a pale yet confident ballet bride on a runway filled with rose petals.
