Dior's Haute Couture Summer 2020 Captures the Complex Relationship Between Feminism & Femininity
For Maria Grazia Chiuri, each collection offers an opportunity to study a specific subject and contributes to the evolution of her singular approach. In opening herself up to other ways of thinking, the creative director seeks to grasp the complexity of the relationships between feminism and femininity.
Mindful of the fundamental link between fashion and the body, she resculps it, like a manifesto. This committed approach has led to dialogues with writers, researchers and artists, with whom the creative director conceives the set and the spirit of her fashion shows. The female divine, an installation specially designed by Judy Chicago for The Garden of The Musée Rodin, at once serves as a sanctuary, a stage and a monumental artwork. But above all it represents a tribute to, and reappropriation of, an ancestral power that goes beyond the idea of procreation. Maria Grazia highlights the vision of a pioneer, a founder of American feminist art, as the revivor of a triumphant, devine conception of femininity, mistress of her density.
