Fashion & Leather Goods
Dior presented its Fall/Winter 2021-2022 haute couture show against the backdrop of an exceptionally sublime decor. Dior commissioned artist Eva Jospin to create a monumental installation In the heart of the sculpture garden of the Rodin Museum in Paris. The installation will be open to the public from July 6-11.
The backdrop of silk embroidered panels conceived by the French artist were in perfect harmony with the threads theme that inspired Dior Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri.
Entitled Silk Room, this unique work is the fruit of an extensive process with a dialogue of multiple voices. The creation references both the Indian-inspired Embroidery Room at the Palazzo Colonna in Rome and Virginia Woolf’s feminist manifesto A Room of One’s Own.
Based on a unique design by the French artist, the forty-meter-long immersive gallery – spanning 350 square meters – is entirely hand-embroidered by the virtuoso artisans of the Chanakya workshop and the Chanakya School of Craft in Mumbai.
The work celebrates the notion of collective energy dear to Italian designer and Dior Creative Director for women’s collections Maria Grazia Chiuri.
With this absolutely stunning decor Dior has once again taken bold creativity to new heights. At the intersection of art and haute couture, this sublime textile architecture unfurls like an ode to the precious savoir-faire and cultures of the world.
