The Christian Dior Resort 2023 collection is for Maria Grazia Chiuri a path of discovery, imagination and reflection, a combination of heritage and inventiveness. The icon of this line is La Capitana, the name given to Carmen Amaya, representing the essence of flamenco, with her freedom to dance and rewrite its rules.
The icon of this collection is La Capitana, the name given to Carmen Amaya. With her freedom to dance that did not submit to any rule, she represented the essence of Flamenco. An artist with singular, revolutionary movements, she was the first dancer in her field to dress in men’s clothing, combining power and fragility through her art.
From the spring-summer 1956 haute couture Bal à Séville dress – designed by Christian Dior – to the Plaza de España – built for the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition to embrace the richness of the cultures that have shaped Spain and represent its multitudes – real and metaphorical places abolish borders by rethinking the dress codes that inspire fashion.
The abundance of embroidery that adorns the venerated Madonna della Macarena’s gowns takes on the role of a sacred ritual in a choreography that suspends the body into an iconic image.
The collection features a men’s pinstripe suits, the pants worn with suspenders, the silk-lined waistcoats; the white shirts; the Andalusian horsemen’s pants; the short jackets adorned with brandebourg closures; the trimmed boleros that make the silhouette even more slender; the sleeves that can flare out like a cape. Shimmering taffeta – in red, yellow, ochre, black – is sculpted into exuberant skirts that symbolize both Dior and Spain.
