Dior sees blue, Issey Miyake looks to northern lights at Paris shows

Fri 3rd March, 2017 4:49pm
PARIS, March 3 (Reuters) - French fashion house Christian 
Dior is seeing blue for women's wardrobes next winter, with 
artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri turning to one of the 
preferred colours of the luxury label's founding designer for 
her latest collection. 
    At Dior's autumn/winter 2017/2018 fashion show held at the 
Paris' Musee Rodin, models strutted down the catwalk in a colour 
palette of different shades of blue -- navy, midnight, denim -- 
as well as black and white. 
    There were navy belted jackets worn with cropped culotte 
trousers as well as taffeta pleated dresses, tops and skirts. 
    Chiuri paired blue chunky knits with see-through chiffon 
skirts, and also presented dark blue velvet dresses and trouser 
suits, loose denim trousers, dungarees and overalls. There were 
also some dark blue and black check outfits. 
    For the evening, Chiuri, who joined Dior last year from 
Valentino, added sparkling sequins, floral embroidery and moon 
and star motifs on dark velvet and tulle dresses.  
    "The collection is a sequence of pieces that reconnect 
emotions, feelings and memories," show notes said, adding the 
colour blue was "among Monsieur Dior's great favourites".  
    A Christian Dior logo appeared on the bottom of jackets as 
well as on underwear seen underneath see-through black dresses. 
    For accessories, models wore berets, choker necklaces and 
bags slung over their bodies. There were also simple stiletto 
heels, flat and knee-high boots. 
    Earlier, the northern lights, or aurora borealis, were the 
inspiration at the Issey Miyake show, with models wearing 
voluminous coats as well as plenty of the label's signature 
    The first looks nodded to the striking dancing green sky 
lights phenomenon, with the outfits' fabric changing colour 
depending on the angle it was viewed, according to show notes.  
    There was also an array of eye-catching pleats in blue, 
orange, green, yellow, burgundy and black created with special 
baking and steam techniques, in billowy shapes.  
   Paris holds the last leg of the womenswear autumn/winter 
2017/2018 catwalk shows, after similar events in New York, 
London and Milan in the last few weeks.
