BENEATH THE DIOR BIG TOP

The spring-summer 2019 haute couture collection was unveiled inside a circus tent set in the gardens of the Musée Rodin.

Facing the rear facade of the Musée Rodin, contrasting with the golden dome of the Invalides, yesterday afternoon a surprising tent was lit up to the top from which flags bearing the House’s effigy fluttered.

The floor was entirely covered in powdery-hued diamonds that referred to the figure of the harlequin – the emblematic circus character summoned in the collection. In soft pastel shades inspired by circus art, the ensemble was created for the show by the British set designer Shona Heath. Regularly collaborating with photographers such as Paolo Roversi and Tim Walker, she conceives fantasy worlds for shoots published in Vogue, AnOther, Dazed & Confused and Harper's Bazaar.

Invited by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the exclusively all-female Mimbre company unfolded a unique performance amid the sashaying models, one that paid tribute to the elements of movement and daring that define the circus.

Eighteen acrobats dressed in outfits specially designed by the Creative Director undertook spectacular and poetic stands that celebrated a strong and liberated femininity, the fundamental and essential bonds of  absolute trust specific to their art as found in the inspirations of this haute couture collection.
