At first, it seemed odd that Maria Grazia Chiuri would hold Dior’s Cruise show in Chantilly, nearly two hours outside of Paris. But presenting the much-anticipated collection in France’s largest horse-racing hub helped contextualize the garments, which were inspired by the escaramuza—women who participate in equestrian charrería, Mexico’s national sport. A jaunty mix of rigidity and grace, the looks blended inspirations from Central America and Europe, pairing voluminous toile skirts with sleek fitted button-downs. The collection proves Chiuri’s ambition for—and success at—turning the previously male-helmed house into a beacon of strong and beautiful femininity.
