Bringing her signature elegant whimsy to the COVID-19 era, Dior creative director (and recent GRAZIA guest editor) Maria Grazia Chiuri has launched a capsule collection born of the stay at home revolution.
Dior Chez Moi is a line of relaxed separates designed by Chiuri in collaboration with her friend and artist Pietro Ruffo. Ruffo’s take on the Toile de Jouy print engages constellation mapping with zodiac legends. This play is both a tribute to the house’s original designs and in honour of its late founder’s penchant for the superstitious.
Housecoats, silk pyjama sets, zippy wind-cheaters, blanket robes and even woven slipper slides are all intended for both indoor lounging and life outdoors. They are described as “an invitation to refinement and the gentle way of life”.
As more and more labels turn to season-less, wear-everywhere ranges, it seems the new fashion investment might just also be the one you wear to bed.
However, Dior’s foray into 2020’s inevitability trend is as sartorially decadent as slouch-wears gets. Designed for home, yes, but its intrepid potential is palpable. These pieces are just begging for the return of vacation normale. For that slow poolside resort life. Until then, however, home is where the heart is. And, if it is, it may as well be where the good fashion is, too.
