Dior, but make it Pink!

Bombaim, Maharashtra, Índia
In the beginning of this year, Dior presented a stunning (and flawless - as always) pre-fall 2023 collection in Mumbai, India. The collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri was a passionately conceived, personal and profoundly respectful tribute to the subcontinent’s crafts and colors. Featuring soft, layered silhouettes, archival motifs, sari-inspired draping, and the exceptional handwork of the Chanakya ateliers, this illumination of Indian culture and textile prowess blends seamlessly with the House’s own perpetual devotion to savoir-faire excellence.

Besides black and white, on display were colour block sequences dedicated to silks in shades of green, yellow, pink and purple, woven according to ancient techniques used in Tamil Nadu. I've selected my favorite looks and coincidence or not, they are all in gorgeous shades of pink... 

I believe Barbie would easily wear these 💘

Held in front of Mumbai’s historic Gateway of India, it was the first time the French Maison unveiled a show in the country.

A celebration of traditional Indian craftsmanship and the master artisans of the city’s famous Chanakya Ateliers with whom Chiuri has worked for over two decades.
