FOR this year’s SS23 ready-to-wear collection, Dior, under the creative direction of Maria Grazia Chiuri, delves into the various aspects of feminine power and, in particular, draws inspiration from the iconic figure of Catherine de Medici.
Featuring a fusion of Dior’s iconic style elements, including a reimagined corset that accentuates the silhouette with its graphic shapes. The classic crinoline style of skirts and dresses is given a modern twist with exaggerated proportions, while the addition of sportswear elements brings a contemporary feel to this unique blend of past and present fashion.
Photographer Brigitte Niedermair brings this (Re)naissance of Dior style to life through a series of stunning shots that capture the mysterious essence of the collection. The images feature a refined setting with a play of light and shadows, set against shades of green, and reveal a universe that is tinged with mystery.
Dior’s Spring-Summer 2023 collection is a true celebration of femininity, showcasing its strength, fragility, and beauty in perpetual motion.
