Punctuated with committed artworks, the show venue for the fall-winter 2020-2021 ready-to-wear collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri stood in the heart of the Tuileries Gardens1 — a veritable open-air museum right in the heart of Paris.
A vital impulse and the need to create a space for freedom, a concept echoing the collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri, whose savoir-faire celebrates the pluralistic beauty of women — and the possibility of showcasing it ad infinitum.
1The House of Dior and the Louvre Museum announced a five-year partnership for the replanting and restoration of the Tuileries Gardens. Dior’s monumental show space was installed in the heart of this exceptional garden (not far from Jean Dubuffet’s sculpture, Le Bel Costumé). By lending its support to this major historical French landmark – one that embodies the meeting of beauty, nature and culture – the House renews its commitment to protecting the environment.
2Io dico Io – I say I is also the title of an exhibition that will be held at the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome from March 23rd to June 21st, 2020. Produced with Dior’s support, it is loosely inspired by the feminist manifesto of Carla Lonzi, whose spirit infuses this collection and the artworks conceived for the show.
