From Joelle Diderich – WWD, July 6,2020
Maria Grazia Chiuri showcased miniature versions of her Surrealism-inspired collection in a short film directed by Matteo Garrone.
Lockdown can make anyone a little stir crazy. For Maria Grazia Chiuri, who spent a month without setting foot outside her Italian home, art provided a form of escape.
Her fall haute couture collection for Dior was inspired by female Surrealist figures such as Dora Maar, Leonora Carrington and Lee Miller – and Chiuri gave the presentation an unexpected twist of her own, producing the outfits at miniature scale and presenting them on mannequins housed in a trunk shaped like Dior’s headquarters on Avenue Montaigne.
“To think about creativity, to dream, was very good, because it gives you hope for the future,” the designer, wearing a white surgical mask, said during a preview at her office in Paris. “I think art is very important in this moment.”
