Maria Grazia Chiuri Revisits the 1950s for Dior Fall 2023

Ladylike bags in jewel tones, lizard effect and soft Cannage appeared throughout

Maria Grazia Chiuri’s creative imagination knows no bounds. Each new collection is seen as an opportunity to reflect and reimagine the role of clothing in relation to the body and fashion as a whole. For Fall 2023, Maria Grazia Chiuri took the design process as a chance to revisit the 1950s, further exploring the history of Dior. Greatly inspired by three of the House’s most fashionable muses, Catherine Dior, Édith Piaf, and Juliette Gréco, the foundations of the feminine wardrobe are revised, rethought, and most importantly, revived.

Texture and print are present throughout, specifically floral motifs which were once a favorite of Mr. Dior. Srunchy skirts and dresses pay tribute to Miss Dior herself, Christian Dior’s sister Catherine. Early looks from the runway juxtaposed the latter, which consisted of jewel tones and prints. Rather, the show began with a simpler approach to fashion with black-on-black separates, dresses, and thoughtfully wrinkled suits.

The Bags of Dior Fall 2023

The bags complemented the RTW, with delicate, ladylike shapes taking center stage. Various bags in CD-embossed smooth leather, burnished lizard prints, and Cannage-quilted leather were toted by models in an array of shades from black to jewel tones like emerald green and magenta. The Dior Book tote appeared on the runway this season along with the House’s latest It-bag, the new 95.22 bag, showcased in a mini green version alongside embellished variations of the Iconic Lady Dior.
