Insulation can make someone a little crazy. For Maria Grazia chiuri, who spent a month without going outside her Italian home, art has become something of an escape.
Her fall couture collection for Dior was inspired by female figures of surrealism such as Dora Maar, Leonora Carrington and Lee Miller and Chiuri presented the presentation an unexpected turn of its own, producing outfits in miniature, and presenting them on the mannequins were placed in the trunk form Dior’s headquarters on Avenue Montaigne.
“Thinking about creativity, dream, was very good because it gives you hope for the future,” the designer, wearing a white surgical mask, said during a safe in his office in Paris. “I believe that art is very important at this moment.”
Because the physical couture show was canceled this season because of the pandemic coronavirus, Chiuri decided to search the display names for the new look on her Dior around the world line capsule pret-a-porter and Luggage.
“During the lockout, I’ve seen a lot of articles about the virtual world, but to be honest, fashion is not only digital. It’s not something you can see. You have to touch it, you should see the skill, especially in the couture”, she explained. “So we can send a collection across the globe for our customers.”
This concept was inspired by the mode Theatre de La, mobile mini-theater fashion, developed at the Chambre Syndicale de La Couture Parisienne after world war II to revive an industry devastated because of the lack of war and German occupation. His 237 doll-size figures toured European cities in 1945, and the event was played in the USA next year.
Dior fashion Studio make two sets of the 37 outfits, each reproduced at 40 percent of its original size. “All the dresses are very fashion dresses. We made them in real sizes with real textiles, with the present skill,” said Chiuri. “It’s a game, but it is real. You must see yourself in your dress”.
Inside the Paris Atelier, seamstress in a mask bent over the dummy’s on your sewing table to painstakingly hand-pleated bodice, ivory linen and cotton gauze ball gown with tiered fringe skirt. She lifted the lid on a mannequin tailor near it in order to show visitors the original Park version of the model is about simplicity.
On another station, one of her male colleagues is working on a shrunken version of the pleated chiffon skirt intarsia in tree bark motive, which must be attached to the beaded upper grille.
It was not the first time that the Experiment worked the surrealist theme of her spring 2018 couture collection presented op art patterns and the cell-buildings – but this time she was not so explicitly, focusing on the essence of the woman that she described as a modern, independent and transgressive.
Recently, the designer stuck with a house bracket as gray pleated bar jacket with a matching razor-pleated skirt or white belt cashmere coat with bright brown / black motif applique.
The collection took flight after dark, with the evening including Greek yellow metallic draped sheath dress with bondage style ropes criss-crossing the torso; sculpted black ruffled coat, and vaporous ball gown covered with pale gray feathers wafted like a Ghost.
Chiuri knocked Italian Director Matteo Garrone to produce a short film without dialogue, showing a sophisticated outfits, which will be posted on the website at 2.30 PM Paris time. “We really wanted to make a story about this idea of a magical dream couture”, she said.
This is something of a departure for Garrone, which oscillates between hard-hitting fare, like his mafia Thriller “Gomorrah” and fantasy films. His latest, an adaptation of Pinocchio, starring Roberto Benigni, saw its French release went through at COVID-19 flash.
“He doesn’t know anything about fashion in General,” said Chiuri, noting restrictions this season encouraged her to think outside the box. “I think everyone should invent their own way of working”.
Stephen Jones made some miniature beret with a veil will complete the look. Hatter saw mode Theatre de La, which is located in the Maryhill Museum of art in Goldendale, Washington.and welcomes the opportunity to work on updated versions of the idea.
“It seemed like the most wonderful thing now, because all that bad news. To have something that is adorable and wonderful and beautiful is the tonic needed by the world. In difficult times, we need things to cheer us,” he said.
During the quarantine at home Petites maincontinue to make orders from home, staying in touch with each other through the zoom. Their tiny creations for the autumn wonders of skill and precision, and a tiny reminder of the high stability of couture.
