The famous House of Dior revealed its sublime collections for men, Haute Couture and women at Fashion Week 2020 in Paris through three shows with grandiose settings and striking universes. Today, FIV Magazine presents the trends of the latest Dior fashion shows imagined by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Kim Jones.
The Dior men’s Autumn-Winter 2020/2021 collection: Past, Present, Couture
47 looks paraded in Place de la Concorde on Friday, January 18, 2020 inside a huge white cube erected for the occasion. The catwalk was divided in two by a large transparent box with smoke and blue, orange and red spots. The whole evoked the clubbing atmosphere of the 90s.
For the Dior men’s winter 2020-2021 collection, artistic director Kim Jones draws on the Dior archives and iconography to celebrate the house’s timeless elegance. A journey to the heart of Haute Couture and a tribute to Judy Blame, a pivotal figure and a symbol of creativity that always looks to the future.
The silhouettes explore values of excellence and authenticity, evoking fashion not just as a finished product but as a creative process. Clothes, shoes and accessories sport engineered zips that enhance their construction, highlighting details and cut as an ode to Christian Dior’s love of architecture. The Dior oblique canvas is revisited in beaded embroideries, while the Dior logo is pierced with a safety pin-a nod to Judy Blame’s DIY-Inspired style.

Like reminiscences of couture and Dior's heritage, the #DiorWinter20 men's collection by @MrKimJones brimmed with references to flou and tailoring techniques. Details including buttons covered in fabric – like those on the iconic 'Bar' jacket – and opera gloves finishing each look appeared alongside a panorama of memories.

For the just-unveiled #DiorWinter20 men's collection, @MrKimJones pays homage to the House's founding couturier, with all of the colors from when he was designing represented, including Dior gray and eggshell blue, a modern spin on the blue Christian Dior himself was so fond of. Engineered zips enhance coat constructions, highlighting details and cut as an ode to Christian Dior's love of architecture. The beret pays homage to Parisian culture as well as the pioneering "Buffalo" movement of the 1980s, a nod to Judy Blame's London style, the show's other key tribute theme.

Trends Dior Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2020: The divine Female
“What if Women Ruled the World? ». This committed question, raised by Judy Chicago – the emblematic American artist – is at the heart of the inspirations for the spring-summer 2020 Haute Couture creations.
On the occasion of the spring-summer 2020 Haute Couture collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri continues her committed reflection on the complexity of the relationship between feminism and femininity. Specially designed by the American artist Judy Chicago, the show’s set – the monumental work The Female Divine, depicting the body of a goddess – illuminates the collection’s silhouettes embodying triumphant beauty. Reflecting this creative power, the peplum, with its essential, timeless allure, is enhanced by the virtuoso Dior savoir-faire. A palette of soft colors and more masculine fabrics magnified by gold punctuate these exceptional models imbued with spirituality.

The Dior Women’s Autumn-Winter 2020/2021: The divine Female
Inspired by emblematic figures of Italian feminist art from the 1960s and 1970s, with the Autumn-Winter 2020-2021 ready-to-wear collection Maria Grazia Chiuri continues her questioning of the multiple and immutable links between the body, feminism and femininity. Captivated by photos from her teenage years, the Creative Director envisioned an initiatory path to self-assertion, through art and fashion. Shaping the clothing, checks and polka dots, long and pleated skirts, and black and white forge a sense of liberation that bridges identity and sisterhood. Conceived by the collective artist Claire Fontaine, the show scenography highlights the words ‘I Say I’ – translated from the manifesto ‘Io Dico Io’ by Carla Lonzi. The runway is covered with pages from the newspaper Le Monde, an adaptation of the work ‘Newsfloor’, titled ‘Le Monde Pixélisé’, after a Robert Capa photograph of the artist Henri Matisse in 1949, while luminous phrases are suspended like woke subtitles. A singularly creative way to explore the multiple facets of female subjectivity, and the perpetual evolution of the feminine.
For this new collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri has chosen the tile as the guiding thread. Monsieur Dior was very fond of tiles. For him, they brought a youthful side and a touch of fantasy to clothing both elegant and casual. The designer was inspired by the men’s wardrobe (shirts and ties) or the hippie style of the 70s with fringed ponchos and logotype scarves to be tied in the hair.
