Dior Goes To California For A Mystical Desert Resort Show

It’s cruise season, which has fashion traversing the globe, crisscrossing oceans in the name of the runway. Earlier this week, we got to see Milan, though briefly, in a more subdued show by Prada, and next week Louis Vuitton is scheduled to touchdown in Kyoto for what’s shaping up to be nothing less than grand.

Just recently, however, Christian Dior, landed in the deserts of California for their own cruise show. Set on a remote mountain top, where the likes of MASH and Gone With the Wind were filmed, Dior’s runway show channeled the ethereal desert on which it was held. Wild West motifs like rattlesnakes and dry animal bones (think skulls and such) filled the canvases of Dior’s clothes. Taffeta and ponchos, along with Western-styled hats (every model wore one, in fact), were ultimately the focus of the runway, with cashmere, denim, and prairie-like dresses circling in and out.

Crafting an aesthetic to fit around a desolate location such as the California desert fell to Dior’s artistic director, the Maria Grazia Chiuri. And when asked about her inspiration for Dior’s 2018 cruise-wear, Chiuri stated that she looked to France’s Lascaux cave paintings, which also served as inspiration for one of Dior’s 1951 collections. The Lascaux paintings ultimately fit right in with the California desert, fitting in with the mystical, magical natural surroundings.

Other inspirations incorporated into Dior’s latest runway venture included Georgia O’Keefe, an American artist infamous for her innovative natural paintings, and Vicki Noble, creator of the Motherpeace tarot deck. Ultimately, Dior’s influences for their cruise show were, as one Vogue writer put it, ones that “linked magic with femininity and feminism” and the results were stunning.
