For the new Dior Couture, SS 2022 collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri decides to collaborate with the creative director of Chanakya, Karishma Swali.
As already happened in the Dior Cruise 2020 fashion show in which the artistic director of the Maison French had decided to set the set for her collection in a place that had so much to tell, to celebrate its uses, culture and traditions, this time within its precious collection, enhances the roots of the tradition of Indian figurative art. Karishma Swali’s touch and repetitive dimensional technique create clothes that evoke magical worlds and pastoral idylls.
Works of art surround everything by a couple of Indian artists, Madhvi and Manu Parekh, whose art is inspired by the folkloric stories of primitive Indian villages and sheds light on the dichotomy between dynamism and static intertwined with a narrative suspended between myth and realism.
The brand’s history has always been an attraction towards superb craftsmanship and the deepest essence of luxury. How can we forget last year’s lavish Dior fashion show at the Palace of Versailles?
