Maria Grazia Chiuri presented Christian Dior’s Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2017, to celebrate the opening of Dior’s new flagship store at the rooftop of Ginza Six mall in Tokyo.

Underlining Dior’s connection with Japan, Chiuri drew her inspiration from cherry blossoms and Christian Dior’s 1953 “Jardinjaponais” dress.Fascinated by the myriad of interpretations, the collection had evening dresses in changeant and powdery colours (mauve, blue, pink, gray) which evoke the passing of the seasons and of life itself, and whose layers of tulle trap exquisite flowers, like those we preserve in our most prized herbariums.
