Dior's latest A/W 2021-2022 Women's RTW collection makes a bold statement on the imagination. Though it was inspired by fairytales, the collection is far from naïve. Instead, it draws on a mature network of symbolism that serves to question stereotypes and challenge the status quo. Maria Grazia Chiuri's sartorial reinterpretation of these timeless classics serve as a dramatic reminder of creativity and meaning.
Tying it back to some of our favourite childhood stories, we've reimagined—as Dior themselves have—how these looks translate on some of our favourite fairytale characters. Here are our top pics:
1. Wicked Witch of the West
From the structured top to the luxurious, inky-blue bodice and rebellious see-through skirt, this entire look is as imaginative as it is eclectic. We imagine this could be a modern take on an outfit the Wicked Witch of the West (from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz) could wear on her adventures.
