Heritage and ethnic mix for Dior Pre-Fall 2017 collection

Dior knows a certain kind of different vibe now that Maria Grazia Chiuri is at its horns. More than ever, now that she moved to Paris, the designer feels the Parsian energy and enjoys it as much as she can.

The young spirit, the bohemian style, the urge for freedom and the desire to dress as you like, feel like the Parisian chic for Maria Grazia Chiuri.She feels Paris as cultural and creative as a melting pot that stirs with energies. So, this kid of mood can be seen in the new collection Dior. 

"Christian Dior is a Parisian brand, so you have to feel this attitude that there is in the city," she said. "You can dress like you want, you can express how you feel. I feel this atmosphere of freedom in the city." 

The collection feels like a contrast between old and new, a mix between the heritage signature and the boho chic elements. 

"I like the heritage element, but at the same time I want to use it in a contemporary way, because in the end fashion speaks about now, and our style of life is completely different. Women in the Fifties didn't work. It's a completely different story," said Chiuri, cited by WWD. 

So, we have biker jackets and velvet dresses mixed in one look, diaphanous dresses and capes, sellerie elements, a long black and white gown with tarot prints on it, denim separates embellished with folkloric embroidery. Is a certain magic in using ethnic style on a classic Dior look just to convey the idea of Dior worn every day, in every style a woman can fit into. The designer does not want to impose a certain line but to influence and guide to a certain style where women can find and definethemselves.
