Camila Carril with Dior Cruise
J’adior… and how not? Maria Grazia Chiuri takes us to the world of wild and ancient femininity in her first Cruise collection which had the whole world and myself obsessed with!
Taking inspiration from one of the designers favourite books: “Women Who Run with the Wolves” as well as Paleolithic paintings and Georgia O’Keefe paintings (which I am too obsessed with… specially her simple but striking drawings of enlarged flowers!) where you see earthy shades in form of female handprints and embroideries but still embracing the House of Dior heritage.
Here I am wearing two of the full looks that we’ve seen on the catwalk… I didn’t have the setting – Wish I was in Cali – nor the balloons (sadly!) but somehow it felt right to work it around the orange hues of London autumn as my own Rodeo Drive. The looks are powerful, feminist and so stunning – do you all agree?
I guess what connects me so much to this collection is the idea of bringing back what is “primitive” and meaningful to adapting it on today’s world. If you look back on the moodboard the hue of colours and prints all connects somehow like poetry. Translating all of this in clothing is ART! Hands down, I am a fan….
