Early last month, Christian Dior announced that it would be taking its Resort 2019 show to France’s Chantilly Stables. Located 30 miles from Dior’s Paris headquarters, the location proved a stunning setting for Maria Grazia Chiuri‘s sophomore Resort line for the house, despite a bout of inclement weather that poured through the open-air hippodrome.
The collection’s primary source of inspiration drew from Mexican female rodeo riders called escaramuza, who were in fact flown in to open and close the runway presentation via a series of synchronized galloping choreography. Keeping with Chiuri’s delicately feminine flair, the range was a stunning display of equestrian-tinged ready-to-wear marked by ornate embroidery, floral prints, rodeo hats, wide leather belts, pleated long skirts and lots of cotton lace.
Dior Cruise 2019: A wonderful representation of modern femininity. For the #DiorCruise2019 show, @dior showcased a beautiful array of equestrian inspired-looks, blending traditional Mexican dress with Dior’s French heritage. The collection, inspired by Escaramuzas, fearless female Mexican rodeo riders, who compete in male-dominated rodeos dressed in pretty traditional costume, reaffirmed @dior’s artistic director, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s quest to celebrate female empowerment.
