#5. Christian Dior
Gone are the corsets to keep waists and bodices nipped and horsehair to make skirts flare. The
bones and underwires and fabrics so stiff seem to stand up and head to the bar by themselves.
A dress of macramé, elegant in khaki, was braided entirely from tulle and was soft yet precise. There are charming floral prints made abstract and artisanal through tie-dye. And on every piece there is the sense of the hand: from butterflies created from feather and bead embroidery to Shiburi scarf prints to the way even the most minimal black tunic is cut and draped. It is a shrewd and beautiful set of clothes Chiuri has proposed for Spring, and one that ticks many of the season’s trending boxes .
