Christian Dior returns to its classical roots as it presents its Haute Couture Fall Winter 2018/2019 collection.

At the Musee Rodin in Paris, Christian Dior showcased its Haute Couture Fall Winter 2018/2019 collection, and the designer Maria Grazia Chiuri drew attention to signature elements that have often been associated with the house. The show featured berets made of leather and tweed coats that were inspired by the bar jacket that the house is famous for, and importantly there was very little of pandering to the masses. Instead there was a focus on transferring the essence of fashion onto the catwalk.

The setting for the show as a white cube among which was positioned several white colored garments. Models walked among the guests wearing couture that was designed to be first and foremost wearable and were inspired by the classical touches that have been associated with Christian Dior over the decades.

As for the colors that Chiuri choose to use most of them veered towards nude shades which lent an overall somber vibe to the collection. Other colors that were used in the show ranged from a bright red to tea green, metallic gold, and dark shades of blue that were used in the bar jacket interpretation. Modern fabrics such as silk scuba also found a place in the show alongside chiffon and crepe. With the collection, Chiuri importantly seemed to be appealing to the serious heart of women who wanted fine clothes that could withstand the test of time and still be a style statement.
