Christian Dior Cruise 2018 collection

The discovery of the Lascaux cave, in 1940, had a profound influence on the artists of the time. For Georges Bataille, it represented the dawn of the human race. The power with which animals are depicted (deer, horses, oxen) takes us back to the infancy of mankind and its relationship to nature, as well as the invention of art. In 1951, Christian Dior appropriated these rock paintings, making a print from them for his Ovale line, a form with allusions to primitive female depictions such as the Willendorf Venus. It is this wild and ancient femininity, linked to the magic of the earth, that guided Maria Grazia Chiuri, Artistic Director of the Dior women's collections, throughout the creation of her first cruise collection for the House.

Dior Homme Fall/Winter 2017 - exaggeration of volumes and shapes

“The idea of ‘the hybrid’ is intrinsic to the collection,” says Kris Van Assche. “Today, people don’t just fit into one box, they fit into many and all at once. There might be an idea of the New Wave or Skate that somebody has grown up with, but it is what those things and people have grown into now that matters. Traces of memory and tradition can still exist, but these happen without nostalgia: this is the hybridisation of now.”

This season, the journey of the man of flowers continues, emerging from his Winter world of evening formality and the Opera House, to the bright sunshine and colour of Summer. Taking his place in a contemporary, indoor ‘jardin a la française’ – filled with 2000 Fée des Neiges flowering white rosebushes, embedded in wooden parquet flooring – the Dior man becomes the contemporary embodiment of a new, haute bourgeois world; a figure who playfully subverts the rules of masculine dress while at the same time upholding their traditions.

What is Haute Couture?
World fashion

What is Haute Couture?

Haute couture refers to the designing, creating, and selling exclusive custom-made, high fashion women's clothes.

The term "haute couture" comes from the French language. Haute means "high" or "elegant", Couture means "sewing" or "dressmaking".

A business must be a member of the Syndical Chamber for Haute Couture in Paris, which is regulated by the French Department of Industry, in order to be called a haute couture house.

Originally referred to French fashion and in France, now the term Haute Couture is also used loosely to describe all high-fashion custom-fitted clothing.
