Dior SS22

Dior Embraces Change, Color, and Freedom for SS22

Reminiscent of her colorful work, Il Gioco del Nonsense (1964), that translates to “the game of nonsense,” Anna Paparatti transformed Dior’s venue into a 1960s dream. Indeed, in her clothes and her show, Maria Grazia Chiuri took us back to the decade, also finding inspiration in the tenure of the house’s former creative director, Marc Bohan. As we make sense of what lies ahead post-COVID, the early 1960s was also a time of reeling for change, knowing there’s a new world on the rise, but not knowing exactly what it would look like.

Chiuri’s designs boldly attempted to make sense of a world that is sprawling in its beliefs. The looks themselves were practical—tailored skirts with short sleeved blazers and collared shirts, sleeveless shift dresses, and sporty boxing shorts with coordinating bralettes. The mixing of textures and material like nylon, scuba, and denim, represented dressing for the future. Bright white fringe tops worn with shorts were used to evoke bopping around in the Piper Club in Rome, which functioned for Chiuri as an emblem for freedom. Many looks were muted, but when color did appear, shades and tones were directly taken from Paparatti’s use of color throughout her work. Dior has the hope that despite the ready-to-wear looks being functional for different settings, and many contrast with the next, they could all be worn together at one big nonsensical party.
