Dior honored Spanish art and tradition

With a zapateado in the Plaza de España in Seville, the Dior Cruise 2023 parade began on Friday. Every detail of the night was loaded with references and nods to Spanish cinema, art and crafts.

The deployment of the French house recalled the golden age of Spanish culture, recalled the international magazine Vogue. The equestrian world was felt in a Spanish version, through guavas and jackets that the firm updated by fusing them with a kind of slavic with Brandenburg closures. Designer Maria Grazia Chiuri x-rayed each of her garments to turn the bowtie into a delicate bow that accompanies black blouses finished off with delicate golden lace collars. The vest was not missing, nor the embroidered bands in total looks. The chaps, which make up the classic dress of the riders, were not absent either.

Every detail of the parade was loaded with references, such as the poetry of Federico García Lorca or Goya’s paintings, which Christian Dior himself was also inspired by in 1938.

The tonal palette of the collection also made reference to the chromatic restraint that prevails in the native cultural tradition. White, black and red, so Spanish, act as a triad on which the first looks are composed, sometimes with sobriety and the craftsmanship of lace and embroidery. The ocher and the earth tones of sand, gold and purple, so typical of ecclesiastical clothing, were also combined in taffeta evening dresses that once again find the maximum exponent of elegance in moderation.

The emblematic Manila shawl, pinstripe men’s suits, trousers with suspenders, silk-lined vests, white shirts and Andalusian jockey trousers became the protagonists of the parade.

The same display of Spanish culture was felt in the parade accessories. Bags like the “Saddle” summed up the character of a story linked to the equine world.

The embroideries were a central feature of the parade, which was mainly reflected in bolero jackets, pants and vests. A complement was the riding boots and leather gloves often worn by models. The dancers of the bullfighters (models) were also present at the event through delicate black low-heeled shoes with a bow. The hats, classics of this collection, were the work of the historic Sevillian firm Fernández y Roche, in operation since 1885.

The Plaza de España in Seville looked impressive, with more than 500,000 flowers, a dream materialized by the landscaper Fran Cisneros who sought to protect the monumental heritage with elements such as gitanillas, geraniums, lavender and handmade baskets.
