Kicking off the Resort 2020 shows with a stunning collection in an equally beautiful atmosphere is Dior in Marrakech. An ode to Christian Dior’s first successor, Yves Saint Laurent, Maria Grazia Chiuri took the show to Marrakech as a way to represent his memory. Described as a “world map,” this collection showcases images and references to different parts of the world with a focus on Africa, Europe, and Asia. Maria Grazia Chiuri collaborated with Uniwax factory in order to reinterpret Dior codes to integrate them into the pieces throughout the collection. The amount of thought and research that has gone into the details is evident. An ode to the past, to landscapes and nature, to cultures, traditions and places, and all different parts of the map can be seen in many different aspects from the patterns to silhouettes in a collection that is guaranteed to need the viewer to look it over and over again as to not miss anything. Stars such as the Haim sisters, Shailene Woodley, Lupita Nyong’o, and Jessica Alba got a first look from the crowd.
