You likely know and love the classic Lady Dior bag, but we bet you have never seen her quite like this before! For the new Cruise 2018 season, your favorite Dior handbags were reinvented through artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri’s designs, which were inspired by mystic energy. The latest accessories now feature graphic embroidery, colorful patterns, and eye-catching images with a captivating story behind them.
“Fortune-telling and tarots have been part of the Dior story since the start, and for her Cruise 2018 collection Maria Grazia Chiuri embraced the ‘Motherpeace’ tarot by Vicki Noble and Karen Vogel,” Dior shared on Instagram.
To decorate the collection’s beautiful embroidered bags, the artist used tarot card art to tell stories. For example, the “Death” and “Judgement” cards as signs of renewal and awakening.
For another brightly colored bag, Maria Grazia Chiuri gave the Lady Dior a makeover as the colorful bead and thread-embroidered ‘Swords’ card, nodding to Monsieur Dior’s lucky star and one of the House’s key codes: the bee.”
What an imaginative and empowering source of inspiration! Though it’s not surprising this collection is making a big impact.
Maria Grazia Chiuri has recently been recognized and honored for making big strides for female empowerment in the fashion industry since making her debut with Dior.
“The feminist movement that has been mine for the longest time has finally struck a resonant chord in society, and this recognition sends a powerful message to all women battling on a daily basis,” the designer said while picking up the Swarovski Award for Social Change in London this November.
The Cruise 2018 collection of Dior handbags are now available to shop at the brand’s international boutiques.
