Maria Grazia Chiuri closed Dior’s Spring 2018 show today with a colorful string of sheer and sequined dresses that are screaming to be on the red carpet. The designer presented on day one of Paris Fashion Week, once again bringing her take on feminist messages and feminine silhouettes to the French house—this time with some eye-catching hues.
The presentation began with a black-and-white color scheme—in checkerboard prints, stripes and polka dots—and various denim looks, but as the show progressed, more color (and shimmer) was introduced.
The final ensembles in Dior’s 80-piece spring collection were a range of sequined dresses in pink, red, blue, orange and yellow-green. Each had a mosaic sequin-covered bodice (which appeared to include shorts) with a bustier top and Christian Dior logo straps—two design motifs Chiuri has introduced as the brand’s new signatures. A midi-length sheer skirt was layered on top, held up with a thin black bow at the waist, acting like a thin curtain of dotted tulle. We wouldn’t be surprised if Dior muses like Jennifer Lawrence or Emma Watson sported one of these next year, or even this season.
The looks were paired with knee-high fishnet boots, thin chokers, layered necklaces, leather bracelets and sequined iterations of Dior’s street style-friendly flap bags that matched with each gown.
