Maria Grazia Chiuri's Inspiration A Peek at Dior Fall 2019 Maria Grazia Chiuri chose a Marc Bohan dress with geometric motifs as the starting point for this fall 2019 collection. It represents the reinterpretation for Dior of a dress designed for Françoise Hardy by Sonia Delaunay. This great 20th-century artist expressed herself through the applied arts, in the creation of fabrics, clothing, and objects. The Creative Director has explored new production techniques, in the form of experimental craftsmanship based around felt and hypnotic geometric motifs, which mixes colors and materials, and is illustrated by a series of coats. She celebrates traditional savoir-faire – such as that of Salento, in the south of Italy, her beloved region – today largely overlooked because of the level of dedication and time it require. It captures all the creativity of women artisans and, gathered within this collection, is an emotional conduit. Maria Grazia Chiuri conceived a space – embodied by the atelier – that maintains the fragile balance between time that's required and that which is imposed. The revolutionary practice of embroidery and applied arts is a way for women to make their voices heard and to construct their own identities. The result is a representation of the creative tension that is constantly being felt between conformity and subversion.
