Inspired by her youth years as a revolutionary student and a feminist in Rome in the 1970s, right after the 1968 worldwide student protests and demonstrations, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection for Dior featured some of the most typical elements representing rebellion: combat boots, fishnets, strong eyeliner, heavy jewellery, and scarves worn as bandanas. It’s precisely these beautiful foulards that Dior presents in-depth in this new, exclusive video.
“The idea is really to make iconic patterns of the Maison stand out”, says the woman presenting the wide variety of foulards that went down the runway a couple of weeks ago. Signature Dior motifs like polka dots, Toile Oblique, and the more recent tie-dye scarves are all woven with a fil coupé jacquard border before being precision printed. Tied around the models’ heads, the scarves “captured the liberated allure” of Chiuri’s most recent collection.
