Looks we love: Dior Cruise 2022

21 June 2021

Dior Cruise 2022 combines the two worlds of Greece—both the mythological world dedicated to the gods, and the historic birthplace of the Olympic games. Take a look at FQ’s favourite looks from the show, below.

WORDS BY Courtney Joe

It was a series of photographs of Monsieur Dior’s haute couture lines that formed the inspiration for Dior cruise 2022. Taken near the iconic Grecian temple, Parthenon, in 1951, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri rediscovers the marble temple ruin in Athens—the city dedicated to the goddess Athena—and captures ancient Greece’s ethereal quality, and influence, in a ninety-look show, set among the stars, at the birthplace of the Olympic games—the Panathenaic Stadium. A march of otherworldly women take the track, dressed in gossamer gowns, expertly draped to perfection, alongside sharp tailoring with utilitarian accents—and a whole lot of gold. Greek blue—said to represent the land’s sky and the sea—is interspersed with graphic pops of yellow and green in a refreshing edit of activewear, bringing an urban and contemporary sensibility to the collection. Maria Grazia Chiuri has certainly presented a wide snapshot of a wardrobe in which all sartorial occasions are covered—perhaps a sign of the post-pandemic freedoms yet to come.
