Dior Spring / Summer 2022 runway collection includes cutest shoulder bag

On runways, the ensemble’s decor complements and often serves as an extension of a designer’s vision for their seasonal collections. This rings true for Dior presentations as Maria Grazia Chiuri, the creative director of Dior, judiciously incorporates her message into the decor. (Take her Fall 2020 runway show, for example, where giant panels, designed by artist Claire Fontaine, read “Patriarchy = climate emergency” or “We’re all clitoral women.”) For the Dior Spring / Summer runway collection 2022 from Chiuri, she once again worked with an artist to bring her story to life.

The Creative Director hired Anna Paparatti to design the sets, which featured game-inspired graphics and nods to the Piper Club, which was the Rome equivalent of Studio 54 at the time. (Note the rotating disco lights that hung from the ceiling with a live performance.) As for clothing and accessories, the colors mimicked those found in the decor: vivid tangerines, neon yellow, and lime green. The collection was Chiuri’s exploration of Marc Bohan’s designs during his time at Dior (he designed for the fashion house from 1961 to 1989). In particular, she took inspiration from her 1961 Slim Look collection. The aforementioned shades were sprinkled into seasonal pieces via sets of retro ’60s skirts and mini dresses (styled with matching coats) that l ‘one could imagine wearing Twiggy.

If you thought carnival colors were unusual for the fashion house – the fall 2021 collection served up a suller vibe – there were several dark-hued ensembles that took to the runway. These looks came in the form of white Peter Pan collar buttons and an elegant black A-line halter neck mini dress.

The opening outfit, in fact, was a black blazer worn over a crisp white button-down shirt, complete with a black miniskirt, while the final outfit was a simple white column dress with a sheer top. Chiuri also showcased her own take on the sport by sending models in silky boxing dresses with color-matched bras and shorts – you don’t have to know how to fight to rock these pieces. (Yes, there was also a pleated neck dress to tap into the fashion industry tenniscore’s obsession.)

In terms of accessories, jewelry, like earrings, has remained fairly minimalist in order to make handbags and shoes shine. Chiuri debuted in black knee-high boots with colorful piping details – they gave off Tron legacy vibes – and delicate Mary Jane shoes in two-tone colors. For handbags, you’ll recognize a cerulean version of Dior’s iconic 30 Montaigne bag as well as several other fresh styles, including a black and white half-moon chain handbag and crossbody bag with buckle on the front. All of the handbags echoed the same set of vibrant hues found in the overall Spring 2022 lineup.
