Watch it Live Here: Dior Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2021 Show
Take your front-row seat and experience the Dior haute couture spring-summer 2021 show, which will unveil later today. What magic will Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri spin for the house of Dior this season?
We hear that Chiuri was inspired by the oldest-known tarot cards in the world—the Visconti-Sforza tarot cards—in this couture collection. The hauntingly beautiful medieval cards were painted in the first half of the 15th century in Italy.
Tarot motifs have always been a key source of inspiration at the maison.
Monsieur Christian Dior was known to be very superstitious. He visited fortune-tellers and would carry lucky talismans, four-leaf clovers, and gold coins with him in his pocket.
Drawing from this, in Chiuri’s first couture presentation in 2017, the designer created a Dior ‘Tarot Card’ coat which took 1,500 hours of workmanship to create, while tarot card imagery was embroidered onto spring-summer 2017’s collection of clutches.
