The 62 flamenco dancers and 110 designers on the magnificent Plaza de España in Sevalli usher in a journey of sensory experimentation with fashion, bolero-beating shoe beats and herbaceous palette.
Dior cruise 2023 the madonna and flamenco dance in maria grazia chiuri’s musical
Seville (Spain) and surrounding cities are a rich source of inspiration with the interference of Baroque, Moorish, Digan cultures, religions, music, festivals, etc. In 1956, Christian Dior has introduced the evening dress “Bal a Seville” with a noble fluttering figure. It begins a dialogue between the traditions of the French fashion house and the Andalusian region.
These unique features once again touch the artistic sensibilities of Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri and are expressed in the Cruise 2023 Collection.
The silhouette of a Spanish woman seems to be dancing in each outfit. Maria Grazia Chiuri’s moodboard features paintings and stories of the country’s “monuments” over the centuries. It’s Our Lady of La Madonna della Macarena with a gorgeous aura, the Duchess of Alba in a black lace Mantilla veil or the heroines of Almodóvar’s films…
The designs have the flexible style of flamenco dancers whose main character is Carmen Amaya – a legendary artist who has gone down in history with his masculine performance wardrobe. She wears high-waisted pants with bolero tops and moves without any rules. It is the soul of Spain and the manifesto of feminism.
The nomadic aesthetic blew an enchanting breeze into the layered dress and sensual see -through layers. Lace, velvet and taffeta are scattered throughout the collection. At the climax, the deep red color of the carnation continues to bring a warm and fiery emotion.
In Italy, a beautiful girl is likened to Madonna. According to Maria Grazia Chiuri, architecture and art rooted in religious culture in the Mediterranean are like a forgotten holy land in the fashion industry. It contains intricate patterns in a regular way, the sharp, sensual brushstrokes on silk and brocade evoke vibes of vision and emotion.
The holiday collection to be launched in a tourist destination has become the norm at Dior. But for any fashion house, organizing overseas shows with a huge number of guests always becomes an economic problem. But for Chiuri, these “expeditions” not only resonate with Dior globally, but also mean connecting art and honoring savoir-faire.
“I don’t work much in the office, but I like to experience factories and garment factories. Time there seems to be frozen for creativity and I feel sympathy for the workers” – Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri.
This time, Dior’s garment factory stretches across Spain with the help of local artisans. The heritage Saddle bag is renewed by Javier Menacho using the age-old leather embroidery technique. The Manila shawl – a symbol of Spanish clothing with a rich history that blends Filipino, Chinese and South American features – is embedded with a piece of Dior DNA at the María José Sánchez Espinar tailor. The Lady Dior bag and Bar Jacket were also decorated by tailor Jésus Rosado with gold and silver thread – which is often used for costumes of the Virgin Madonna in religious processions.
Wide-brimmed hats designed by Stephen Jones and finished in the hands of artisans at Fernández y Roche appear in honor. They are part of traditional Seville equestrian wear, depicted by Dior in felt or straw, worn to one side and worn bare as a companion to Jackie Kennedy in 1966.
