Dior Fall 2021-2022 Ready-to-Wear Paris – Dark Tinker Bell story. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
In every collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri chooses a territory where the story is happening. She created a world of dark and jealous fairies, and fairy tales as means of escape: it serves to challenge and revisit stereotypes and archetypes. The character of Fairy Tinker Bell is a perfect example of one of these fairies, who are jealous, suffers from jealousy, showing a “catastrophic” emotional life, and tearing their suffer with metallic picks (Dior Decor).
Tinker Bell is a new modern female archetype. Charming and unbearable at times, enchanting and bewitching, quick-witted… but manipulative and jealous, the characters of the Dior show are ready to kill, ready to betray, they suffer and they give suffering, they are ready to kill or to be killed in extremely violent way. That is why the last dress of the collection is a Queen of Hearts.
Revisited by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the toy soldier’s uniform thus transforms into a series of blue cashmere coats embellished with touches of red and white. Shimmering lamé and Lurex jacquards lend this stylized silhouette a metallic shine; fabrics made with gold and silver threads appear to float as if by magic. Black boldly asserts itself on a range of pieces from skirts to the Bar jacket punctuated with the cannage motif, an iconic Dior code, or with a hood that might have been worked for the Dark Red Riding Hood.
A new self-awareness, born of a feminine sensibility and suffering that knows how to blend memories of the past and maturity, Maria Grazia Chiuri in this Fall 2021-2022 collection gave this new funding source of bi-polar behavior, danger and readiness to kill, to be drawn in the blood of the ones who gave her the suffering. Did Maria Grazia Chiuri described her own self and her own world in this fairytale?
