For Spring 2021, Dior Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri drew inspiration from the current global climate, embracing the period of crisis that is drastically changing our behaviors, rituals, and habits. The concept of fashion as we know it is radically different, and Grazia Chiuri embraced this uncertainty with her new collection for the French design house. Classic Dior silhouettes are transformed, showcasing the brand’s rich heritage and exploring its origins. Grazia Chiuri reinterprets the iconic forms of House for a different way of living. Flowing fabrics and silhouettes create the perfect backdrop for Dior’s classic handbag shapes, many of which have been reinterpreted for Spring 2021.
The embroidered Dior Book Tote continues its reign for SS21, reinvented by Maria Grazia Chiuri in different ways this season. The color stories and effects shown capture the spirit of the season, and variations include colorful sun-bleached stripes, high-impact tie-dye, and rich tones and intricate embossed leather motifs. Dior 30 Montaigne ‘CD’ signature clutches are also a big push this season, and the silhouette is multifunctional, as it can be unfolded to create a slim tote bag. Making an impact on the runway, this hybrid design comes in two sizes and a wide variety of colors and materials, including the brand’s iconic Oblique print. This season new versions of a classic shape, the Lady D-Lite, which has already become an icon, appear again on the catwalk. Must-have iterations are seen throughout, including a striped version in pale hues, embodying the spirit of the season. Take a look at the bags below.
