Dior’s Spring-Summer 2022 Haute Couture collection draws inspiration from the atelier as an instrument and a place of experimentation. Led by creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, the series features embroidery beyond embellishment, but rather a form for architecture and medium for innovative structure. A central theme throughout the collection, embroidery is also explored through signature tights, seamlessly melding with a variety of looks. A collaborative work, the collection employs the creativity of Indian artists Madhvi and Manu Parekh, the Chanakya Atelier and the Chanakya School of Craft. Colors remain neutral, with shades of black, white, ivory, and cream, nodding to a contemporary approach to sleek design. Textures are explored, and sheer fabric and draping is utilized to frame the feminine figure. A creative dialogue, art and craft intersects in this modernized, elegant collection.
