Dior Fall 2020 - Runway Review
February 25, 2020
"Forever Feminism" continued to be a touchstone for Maria Grazia Chiuri at Dior, her neon set lights flashing "Consent, Consent, Consent" for fall. A collaboration with artist Claire Fontaine, the set seemed mightily apropos in the recently-elevated #MeToo movement and its encroachment into all forms of art. The show started strong with a ribbed Dior bar jacket, cut at an angle and worn over a men's shirt and tie. As the procession of models, the majority of whom sported printed silk headscarves, showcased the ample 84 looks, the designs morphed less into a show ripe with new ideas and more into a hurricane of very salable Dior staples: checks evocative of Marc Bohan's era to the requisite polka dots and sporty knitwear with logoed separates to yes, even fringe.
