Homage to Dior’s Excellence: The La Cigale dress, a masterpiece conceived by Christian Dior in 1952, served as a thread connecting the entire collection. The craftsmanship excellence of Dior’s workshops took center stage, with the characteristic muaré material undergoing contemporary variations, capturing light in every movement.
Texture Play: Alongside muaré, velvet played a prominent role, defining the contours of a fluid evening gown. Organza, combined with feathered capes or embroidered with natural motifs such as the famous Millefiori, adorned a vivacious yellow muaré dress.
Star-Studded Front Row: The Dior haute couture runway once again attracted a constellation of celebrities, including Rihanna donning a padded black ensemble with a visor cap, Deva Cassel accompanied by her boyfriend, Italian actor Saul Nanni, along with Anya Taylor-Joy and Carla Bruni.
