DIOR RESORT 2018
Monsieur Dior was a lover of the tarot, and Chiuri has never failed to dip into his personal likings.
Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in Calabasas, California, a super remote mountaintop where Little House on the Prairie and Gone With the Wind were filmed, was the amazing desert location of the Dior Resort 2018 fashion show.
Rihanna, Charlize Theron, Solange Knowles, and Miranda Kerr among other stars discovered the beautiful collection. Some mountain lions and rattlesnakes in the Preserve also had the chance to view it from afar. “For me, I found it close to L.A.,” she said of Monsieur Dior’s designs. “You think L.A. and you think Hollywood, Oscars, the red carpet, but honestly I feel people love this place because you feel in contact with the natural elements.”
Chiuri reproduced the Lascaux sketches, taken from Mr. Dior’s archives, as a silk and raffia jacquard used on New Look skirts and ponchos, as a print on a softer cotton shirtwaist dress: she went to the archives, where she came across the house founder’s Lascaux collection of 1951, inspired by the ancient cave paintings discovered in southwestern France a decade earlier.
