Dior had just presented its spring/summer 2020 collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri last night. The collection was inspired by photographs of Catherine Dior—Christian Dior’s sister—in which she appears amid her flowers, in the garden that was her passion.
Nature and the preservation of biodiversity are among the central themes celebrated in this show. Driven by this conviction and by the love of gardens, this new Dior collection evokes — through motifs and embroideries, brilliance and texture of raffia — lush imaginary vegetation.
The designs are presented in the style of herbaria, those precious inventories that preserve the memory of botanical species. Dior Creative Director’s poetic message of environmental commitment highlights that every small gesture counts in protecting and cultivating the beauty of our Earth. The maison also purchased 170 trees from plant nurseries that will be replanted in three different locations in the Paris region.
