Surrealism Art into Fashion: Dior’s Spring/Summer Haute Couture 2018

March 31, 2018

Dior Director, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection was inspired by

surrealist artist Leonor Fini. The color palette is black and white, to represent

unconsciousness.

The fashion show took place at the Musee Rodin garden in Paris. The decor consisted of

black and white objects such as cages, and human body parts hanging from the celling.

The set design resembled Chiuri’s surrealist inspiration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Models wore garments with checkered, swirls, and polka dotted designs. The wardrobe

consisted of pleats, peacock feathers, embroidery, and fringe. The pieces that stood out

the most were the black basket dress that represented a cage and the black and white long

polka dotted coats that gave an illusion of dominoes. The collection also included

embroidered jackets and pants to represent masculinity because artist Fini dressed like a

man.
