You’ll Want Every Piece From Dior's Show At Paris Fashion Week, Guaranteed!

Natasha Patel , 25 Sep 2018

If there’s one thing I know for certain, it’s that Paris does not mess around when it comes to fashion. Fashion month is almost wrapped up but not before Paris Fashion Week completes the home stretch. Maria Grazia Chiuri’s spring/summer 2019 Dior collection was nothing short of spectacular. Thank god for social media because this was one show I did not want to miss, and you shouldn’t either!

Dior‘s confetti scattered floor with ballet dancers twirling around the models as they showcase the new collection is really something you need see. So, we’ve lined up everything you need to know (and what you’ll probably want in your closet) from the show!

Firstly, this was the runway (!!!) Yeah.

When dance and fashion meet on the runway: for the Spring/Summer 2019 @Dior show, Maria Grazia Chiuri invited Israeli choreographer @sharoneyaldance to create an exclusive performance for nine dancers. The apotheosis of the show, the piece is a vibrant ballet blending classical and contemporain influences. Paris fashion has a venerable history of association with ballet: Christian Dior himself designed the wedding dress of Margot Fonteyn, whom he adored. Yet this was very deliberately different. “The classical tradition in ballet does not speak about real female bodies,” said Chiuri backstage shortly before the show. “The history of ballet specifies a body shape that is not natural and it demands movements that are not natural ones for our bodies. Female choreographers – Isadora Duncan, Pina Bausch – they broke those rules.”Chiuri’s comparison is a sharp one. Ballet rivals even fashion for a dubious history of fetishising thinness. The technique of dancing en pointe was developed as a way to make dancers appear weightless. “Fashion, in the past – it was the same as ballet,” said Chiuri. “[Fashion] wanted to control women and to constrict their bodies. We are living in a revolutionary moment now. This is a new time, when fashion should support women, not control them. Dance can show how things can be different. At a revolutionary time a great house like Dior has to be aware of the change happening all around.” _______________________________________________________ #diorss19 #christiandior #fashion #fashionbusiness #fashionshow #ballet #balletshow #mariagraziachiuri #designer #paris #parisfashionweek #fashionweelparis #vogue #vogueparis #dioe #Sharoneyal #pfw #fashionomics

It was an exclusive ballet performance and a fashion show all rolled into one.

You could see a lot of muted and monotone colours in the collection—from black to beige, to olive and white…

Structured suits included thin CD belts cinching the waists. Very chic!

Feminine dresses, frills and ballet flats seem to dominate the runway as well.

They showcased a new and improved way to wear fishnet with tank tops.

Tie-dye prints seemed to have made a comeback.

With each piece designed with movement to look light and airy.

The revamped Dior Saddle now has multiplied, with easy-to-carry backpacks, slings and duffle bags.

… Also making a case for possibly a new way to carry and sport your handbag.

Bag alert. Dior Spring 19

The accessories were either bold or nothing at all.

The hair accessories were all about beenies, barets and double-banded headbands.

The makeup look was minimal with just liner on the lash line and a hint of gloss on the lips.

It was a star-studded event with Blake Lively showing up looking all kinds of beautiful in a very high-fashion look.

The style on the streets were nothing short of creative and amazing as well.

It’s safe to say that Dior brings out the best in everyone… Hey, Maria Chiuri! I’m still waiting for my Dior Saddle bag. Feel free to send it anytime soon!
