The Maison Dior occupies a sprawling complex of buildings, radiating out from 30 booiserie Montaigne, the townhouse where, 70 years ago, Monsieur Dior founded his label. They form, fairly randomly, the shape of a star, which Monsieur Dior — a superstitious sort — believed to be lucky. They reflect a multi-billion-pound business empire, built upon a magic name that, as Jean Cocteau said, fuses God dieu with gold or.

Ah, the inevitable homage. Perhaps no house is as enthralled by its heritage as Christian Dior. The founder was an arch romanticist, a nostalgic daydreamer. Snow was right, and wrong. Even Dior himself recounted, in his autobiography, how his tailors and seamstresses had to rediscover the art of Victorian-era dressmaking — corsetry, taffeta or cambric linings, multiple petticoats — lost to an era of slippery bias cuts.

They replaced the angular, padded Joan Crawford shoulder of the early s with sloping lines, cinching the waist, and plumping out the hip and bust.

Skirts, which had been restricted by both fashion and law to straight pencil styles just below the knee, consumed vast quantities of fabric to fall within a foot of the ground. Where women of the war years were obliged to look mannish, they now became soft and fecund, femininity incarnate — a newness rooted graxia the past. France has had plenty of revolutions — not all of them progressive.

It asserted the supremacy of France as dictator of fashion, and ensured the dominance of haute couture as the arbiter of international style for another two decades.

As I sit with Maria Grazia Chiuri on the second floor of the rue de Marignan, the final preparations are underway for another Dior fashion show over in the Louvre incidentally, the former home of the kings of France, until Louis XIV moved them to Versailles.

This one is an exhibition: Either side, in the windows of the replica couture house, are riffs on that Bar suit by other designers, like an Orthodox iconostasis. Nevertheless, the only thing I notice — or that, I feel, bears specific comment — is that Chiuri predominantly wears black, and that on her back is her version of that Bar jacket.

Every designer, it seems, is challenged to create their own, which means a lot of jackets. Chiuri is the seventh artistic director of Dior, including Christian himself. Chiuri began her Dior tenure, uncharacteristically, with ready-to-wear. France has a huge tradition in food.

But it makes it very rich. Italian is more simple, more light. That is our tradition. The similarities end there. She started working at Fendi and then moved to Valentino, where she stayed for 17 years, spending eight as co-creative director with Boisfrie Piccioli. Graziq couture is the heart, ready-to-wear and accessories are the life-blood: Chiuri has already gone about redesigning those, visiting the Italian factories where shoes and handbags are made prior to her first ready-to-wear show last September.

Apparently, none of her forebears did so. The major difference between Chiuri and her predecessors, of course, is that Chiuri is a woman and hence wears her Dior clothes herself.

That perhaps indicates why there is a sense of reality underpinning her designs. At that first couture show, her models walked easily in low-heeled shoes, her bodices fit boiseerie but did not constrict. The Femme Fleurand her various iterations, have been the backbone of the Dior look for the past decade. I think the word is difference.


Chiuri has a directness that is interesting, in both her conversation and her clothing. The latter is speaking to women, evidently: Her tenure boiesrie increased sales.

The former is boiseire interesting in the annals of Dior. Chiuri knows, because she is one, and hence can get along with the business. Dior is the man a son of Normandy, no less who resuscitated a moribund haute couture industry, and restored it to greatness. He gave back French women their figures and femininity; he made the world look new.

When Dior died, suddenly, inhe was replaced by Yves Saint Laurent, his tremulous, timid, year-old former assistant. How to slot Maria Grazia Chiuri into the history books?

Her approach, however is singular — that directness, again. Rather than ignoring the tenures of past artistic directors and glancing back to Monsieur Dior alone, Chiuri takes in the entire Dior archives.

Coming after a tumultuous three years boiiserie Saint Laurent, where hemlines rose and fell erratically and a series of relentlessly youthful themes culminated in a controversial collection dedicated to s existentialists, dubbed the Beat look, Bohan was exactly what Bboiserie needed to steady the boat. What this all means is that, just as the New Look represented the ne plus ultra of fashion inso Dior carried on epitomising the fashion moment in, For a designer to cherry-pick from the apotheoses of multiple different eras, under one label, is somewhat unprecedented.

In my first show I used all the references that I thought were right, in that moment. They began as something old, but finished by looking new. Subscribe to the weekly AnOther newsletter. I would like to receive the AnOther newsletter.
