Set in the city of Giza, the show was very successful at not only showcasing the essence of the Egyptian desert and the country's history, it did so through a futuristic lens. The ochres and greys beautifully show the transition from morning to night, from a fiery sunset seen in the use of a bright yellow, to an actual galaxy print which represent the exquisite display of stars that can be seen at night in the desert. This ‘heritage’ which represents this part of the world meets the future of fashion through the feminine touch which is brought to masculine tailoring, couture finishings brought to outerwear garments and Dior's archival embroideries which are transformed into futuristic armory.
All of this is presented which such ease, this modern pattern cutting seems futuristic yet traditional at the same time. The crin-like wool demi kilts (which are informed by the bias pleated skirt of a Dior dress which came out in the '50s) and technical jacquard transparencies bring in a utilitarian influence to the collection; comfort and practicality are heavily prioritised. This is another factor that makes this collection so innovative, refreshing and still extremely wearable. Because we can't deny the fact that comfort is basically the ultimate luxury.
