Dior in the Desert! Photos from Christian Dior Cruise 2018 Runway Show

_ONA0039

The Resort world tour continues with Dior’s show in Los Angeles. This evening, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri brought the fashion pack to the Santa Monica Mountains Nature Preserve—in ATVs, no less!—to present a collection of midi dresses, utility jackets, and chunky knits fit for the rugged, laid-back setting.

In the vast nature preserve, guests were seated in airy tents with views of the hills. The show began just after sunset, and in the background, hot air balloons swayed gently in the breeze. As for the runway, there wasn’t one; models walked by on the packed dirt in flat boots and leather sandals.

The Primitive Prints

Chiuri’s silk jacquard dresses and jackets featured her dreamy, blown-up interpretation of the Lascaux animal paintings. In earthy shades of tan, rust, and ocher, the prints looked surprisingly close to the real thing; there was even a fur coat intarsia’d with the motif for the ultimate mix of past and present.

The Dresses

Many of the dresses came in Chiuri’s favorite silhouette: corseted bodice, square neckline, A-line midi skirt. There were also plenty of her signature balletic, sheer embroidered gowns; some came with a sequined handprint motif, while others had primitive-looking embroideries of women and animals.

The Western Hats

Similar to her Fall ’17 show where every model wore a black leather beret, every look here was topped with a flat-brim hat, often tied below the chin or adorned with turquoise beads.
