Located at the banks of the East River, for one night only, the navy docking yard was transformed into an haute fashion venue, complete with a runway stage.
Also joining the chic ladies during the evening were fashion design duo Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough from Proenza Schouler and media magnate Harvey Weinstein were there to lend their support.
The element is latter married off to the quintessential European sensibility that is naturally present within Dior’s longstanding design DNA, hence conceiving a collection that is imbued with subtle yet abstracted fashion perspective whilst brimming with contemporariness and nonchalant elegance.
In this collection, the scarf is given a new treatment ― not as a scarf but as the flag of the collection ― with every aspect of it from its pop iconography to the conservative and lady-like connotations are fully explored, hence bringing forth is sinuous and free-spirited sensibility.
Even its geometry is often borrowed for the garment construction while the scarf’s hand-painted patterns provide supple decoration.
The classic pleats and godets of Dior are relaxed and flow with their sinuous construction and bias cutting bring forth a further study of hard and soft – a theme that runs throughout the collection that is also encompassing scarf-wrapped shoes and jewellery.
