Maria Grazia Chirui keeps setting the trends with her collections. I am going to be honest, I look forward to her shows to see what she is going to do next.
The designer explained that she was directly inspired by the artist Niki de Saint Phalle, who was one of the first 20th Century female artists to be recognized by the establishment as well as a close friend of former Dior creative director Marc Bohan.
At the show in Musée Rodin, on each seat lay a copy of feminist art historian Linda Nochlin’s 1971 essay, “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?”, which explores the institutional sexism of the art world. Maria went ahead and even designed a shirt with that slogan.
In regards to the collection, I am dying to get my hands on the sequence dresses. I can totally see myself wearing it for awards show season which is right around the corner. I also loved the denim looks from Maria that took over the runway.
What do you guys think about the new collection?
