There’s no doubt that the 1960s have taken over the current fashion circuit. Dior’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection presented in Paris was inspired by pieces reminiscent of that time.

Colour blocking was a key focal element of the show as Maria Grazia Chiuri revisited an era, where bright hues reigned supreme. Branching out into a series of colours such as yellow, green, red, navy, orange and raspberry, the aesthetic eluded a positive world that lays ahead of the pandemic.

From boxy cut jackets to refined coats, the collection mastered the art of mood-boosting silhouettes with a creative flair. While on the other hand, some designs were seen with 3D embroidery and reinterpreted volumes of nylon, in contrasting hues.

The collection took inspiration from the house’s third Creative Director, Marc Bohan, who mended the bridge between fashion and art. Infusing nodes of his legendary offering to the fashion world, the pieces came to light with elements seen during his tenure.

With nodes from the legendary Rome nightclub – the Piper Club, the silhouettes were based on its edgy interiors and standout dance floor, as it was the go-to place of the prominent era.

Designed by Italian artist Anna Paparatti, the breathtaking show set, added to the collection’s colour-infused pieces, that paid homage to an era-defining time.

There’s no doubt that the show was an absolute success as Maria Grazia Chiuri continues to carry on the Maison’s legacy.
