“The concept of film, as a work of art and an artistic medium, has always captivated me; I have often thought of experimenting with it in order to reproduce the unique atmosphere of haute couture. Cinema is an art that is both creative and artisanal, a work of authorship and a chorale. It’s very similar to fashion’s savoir-faire,” Maria Grazia Chiuri explains on the occasion of the unveiling of her autumn-winter 2020-2021 haute couture collection. A collection that invokes many inspirations, and explores new paths. A story woven from the many tales, passions and curiosities that have nourished the spirit of the Creative Director of Dior’s women’s collections during this suspended period of time, which has barely ended — if indeed it is truly over.
