With a retro-futuristic vision, Maria Grazia Chiuri presented the Maison's new Fall/Winter 2022 collection full of surprises. Lately, we've seen Chiuri's fascination for the brand's iconic pieces and moments of their history, so it's a nice surprise to see her will to moving forward. We can't be sure whether she'll keep this initiative onto other collections — it's way too soon still, but it feels as if Dior's understanding that technology is advancing at fashion's speed.

Yet we are talking about Dior, and letting go of the past for them is quite a feat. For the presentation of this collection, models were strutting down a runway decorated by 16th and 19th-century inspired paintings from artist Mariella Bettineschi as they dressed D-Air lab tech pieces. Catsuits with bold light-stripes and padded corsets were part of the collection, to strengthen the airiness and classiness of Dior's staple silhouettes that were present throughout dresses and suits.

The colour palette was far distant from the disco dream of their Spring/Summer 2022 collection, yet it still felt as if Maria Grazia Chiuri kept trying to push the brand towards a more youthful outlook. Whether future nostalgia is still a thing it is up to you, but we can tell you right off the bat that Dior's aiming for something different from what we've been used to, and we can't wait to see more of this.
