"Women, with their intuitive instinct, understood that I dreamed not only of making them more beautiful, but happier too." Christian Dior
Rounding out our coverage surrounding the unveiling of the #DiorCouture Spring-Summer 2023 collection by @MariaGraziaChiuri , we sign off with the front-and-center placement of extravagant embroideries and fabrics. The burnished brilliance of gold cloqué is translated through tailoring, and from a wrinkled radzimir bustier and wrap skirt to a fringe-hemmed frock drenched in hammered metal sequins, shine and shimmer produce instant eye-catching impact. It is the perfect bridge between the inspiring spell cast by Joséphine Baker and the spirit of Monsieur Dior that continues to shape the House’s identity and destiny. © Photo: @LauraSciacovelli    All scenographic artworks by @MickaleneThomas , with embroidery by @Chanakya.In and @Chanakya.School

Exalting the exemplary preeminence of the #DiorSavoirFaire that makes it possible, a look at three #DiorCouture Spring-Summer 2023 outfits by @MariaGraziaChiuri illustrates how the preciousness and gorgeousness of gold illuminating the collection was an integral element of many pieces. Attention-grabbing and dense with floral decoration, here, a warp-print jacquard weave fabric glistening with golden threads is cut into a coat and dress without any additional embellishment, their splendor balanced by the muted hue of a shantung trouser suit. © Photo: @LauraSciacovelli    All scenographic artworks by @MickaleneThomas , with embroidery by @Chanakya.In and @Chanakya.School

The spotlights that shone on the sensational public persona of the African-American performer and activist Joséphine Baker was a leitmotif of many of the looks of #DiorCouture Spring-Summer 2023 by @MariaGraziaChiuri , the collection she inspired. That influence came through most clearly in the animated beaded fringe and the little top and shorts in 1920s rhinestone geometries. An evening ensemble with the ease of pajamas corresponds to a gently crushed velvet coat, an evocation of a dressing room robe. © Photo: @LauraSciacovelli    All scenographic artworks by @MickaleneThomas , with embroidery by @Chanakya.In and @Chanakya.School
