Dior Brings a Simplistic Approach to the Spring Summer 2022 Collection
The Dior Spring Summer 2022 show was unexpected in that it trades in its legendary frills and gowns for a more updated version of 1960’s simplistic cuts and silhouettes.
“It is structured around a network of associations as Maria Grazia Chiuri explores Marc Bohan’s long tenure as Creative Director of Dior. More precisely, she highlights the Slim Look collection, presented in 1961 and described by the fashion press as follows: “It completely changes fashion, just as the New Look did in 1947.”
Saturated colors include bright green, bold orange and vibrate yellow among many other complimentary colors.

Boxy cut jackets are paired with barely-there miniskirts, while silk bombers in rich hues offer a more athleisure feel to the collection.
Impressive numbers accompany the show including; “150 automatic spotlights to illuminate the set, the visuals and models, 97 modules totaling 1000m3 in volume for the hand-painted reproduction of the snakes and ladders game and 10km of struts to structure the entirety of the decor.”
The collection approaches the post-pandemic world with non-fussy offerings that are sure to be a hit amongst celebs, musicians and everyday consumers.
