Creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri has revitalized Dior, exploring the House’s most celebrated emblems while finding new ways to incorporate them into her collections throughout her time at Dior. The designer continues to push boundaries, and last week Grazia Chiuri and the team at Dior presented one of its edgiest collections yet, bridging the gap between Dior’s past and present all the while. Titled ‘The Next Era,’ the collection represents transformation and an assessment into the perception of accepted fashion notions.

Icons Return, Both New and Old

Emblematically feminine Dior silhouettes are revamped and refreshed for Fall 2022, like the skirts typically associated with the classic Dior Bar Jacket, which are given a voluminous new look with a combination of varying lengths, gathers, and pleating. Stunning fabrications took center stage in this collection, like the gorgeous shimmering brocades that appeared throughout. These same brocades also appear on bags in the collection, like the Dior Bobby East/West, which continues to be a big push this season.

The Dior Vibe made an appearance as well, with new iterations of the Dior Vibe Bowling Bag cementing its place as a new icon for the House. Appearing in various iterations, the Vibe encompasses the vibe of this collection overall, no pun intended. It’s new, meets old, with hints of Dior Cannage-Quilt showing up on the Vibe as well as throughout the collection as a whole. A brand new top handle bag, the 95.22, shown in look 6, showcases more of the House’s iconic Cannage-quilt, once again reiterating a renewed, modern focus on House emblems and an evolution of Dior Savoir-Faire.

iconic house emblems, house classics, house icons, house codes………. really wish we could see some other descriptors used. with the amount of times this blog has recycled terms and descriptions the last few months I’d think there was some specific word mention count they were trying to hit or something haha

i still enjoy the blog as a 10+ year reader but i’ve got to be honest and say that it seems like the quality of writing has gone a bit downhill over the years!

As opposed to the grammar teacher? Save the grammar lessons for school this is the internet and a blog. I think people get the message regardless.

The 95.22 is amazing! It looks to be a combination of a Lady Dior and a Gucci Diana. My next purchase was meant to be a Mini Lady Dior until I realized how small it is, I don’t think I can even put my phone in it.

For those (like me) who are drawn to the new 95.22 bag, there is a nice video about it on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1104512303702576

I watched this and it was very interesting. Thank you! I’m excited for this bag to launch! I think it will be a big hit for Dior! Hopefully, it will cost less than a Lady Dior, which will make it more affordable for me. 🤞

I love #1 and # 6! I feel that the Vibe Bowling Ball bag already looks dated; it’ll probably be discontinued in the next few years.

I hate that shape so much. I already did in the 2000s. That bowling bag shape is my least favorite here.

Look 4 is very nice but the handles are too short to carry it over your shoulder, esp in a winter coat. Wonder if it comes with a shoulder strap (probably not) and also curious to see what kind of pockets it has inside, if any. My favorite is look 6. Would definitely consider buying that one.
