Dior Embraces The Great Feminist Uprising
On the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Paris student protests, Maria Grazia Chiuri made a fabulous discovery, a black and white treasure trove of chic young women protesting outside the Dior store in Paris because there were not enough miniskirts inside.
Chiuri took up counter culture movement and the clothes of the late ’60s—the crochets, the embroideries, the patchwork, filtering them through her feminine lens. Colorful patchworked leather skirts and jackets were pieced together from reproductions of archival Dior prints. Then there were the school uniform, consisting of jackets worn with pleated see through tulle skirts and kilts.
Maria Grazia Chiuri took some time out to chat with Adwoa Aboah, the outspoken model and founder of the online platform Gurls Talk. They sit down to discuss the inspirations behind the collection, May ’68, and the empowerment and emancipation of youth and women.
