Dior reveals Haute Couture FW 20-21 Collection in Enchanting Short Film

Dior just revealed its Haute Couture Fall-Winter collection for 2020-2021 in a special short film, inspired by the Théâtre de la Mode touring exhibition of the ’40s!

Parisian fashion house Dior has just launched its Haute Couture Fall-Winter collection via a live stream.

Théâtre de la Mode

In the trailer for the short film, Dior’s creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, explains she wanted to evoke the magic of the Théâtre de la Mode (Theatre of Fashion), a 1945–1946 touring exhibit of small fashion mannequins or dolls, approximately 1/3 the size of human scale, crafted by legendary Paris fashion designers. It was created to raise funds for war survivors and to help revive the French fashion industry in the aftermath of World War II. The Creative Director of Dior women’s collections channeled exceptional savoir-faire and magical inspiration in these new creations.

Rewatch the, now finished, live stream of Dior Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2020-2021 collection right here.

Enchanting atmosphere

The short film was created by award-winning Italian filmmaker Matteo Garrone, who recently directed an adaptation of Pinocchio. Garrone created an enchanting atmosphere that takes us right into a Hans Zatzka fantasy painting.

Although the short film is absolutely breathtaking, the casting and garments itself remained quite monotonous. Maria Grazia Chiuri had already based her Haute Couture Spring 2020 collection on Greek mythology, and it’s obvious she has, once again, gained inspiration from the same thing. Still, the pieces fit perfectly into the vibe of the film and resulted in a coherent work of art and a refreshing new way to showcase a collection.

Take a look at some behind the scenes photos.
