Photo: AFPWith the pandemic forcing Paris Fashion week online, haute couture designers have turned to celebrated arthouse filmmakers to give a little spectacle to their presentations, even if some admit a growing desperation to return to live shows. In these uncertain times, the fashion world needs a touch of magic more than ever and Dior drafted in Italian director Matteo Garrone for their latest collection inspired by tarot cards. The filmmaker behind recent left-field hits such as Gomorrah and Pinocchio created a dreamlike adventure in which a young woman crosses paths with tarot characters such as Justice, the Madman and Death. The creations on display at the show mix the feminine – a long lace dress with voluminous sleeves – with the masculine, in the form of a reinvented version of Diors iconic “bar” suit.”Tarot cards speak of a magical world,” said Maria Grazia Chiuri, the fashion houses Italian haute couture designer. “Not to tell us the future, but to better understand the present and our personality.”Garrones “artisanal approach to filmmaking has a language that is poetic, extremely picturesque, that marries up very well with my vision of haute couture,” she told AFP.Meanwhile, Chanel made their online presentation on Wednesday with a short film and photos by another cult film favorite, Anton Corbijn, known for his gritty Joy Division biopic Control and many photographic portraits of rock icons. “I knew that we couldnt organize a major catwalk show, that we had to do something else. So I had the idea of a little cortege that descends the stairs of the Grand Palais. Like a family celebration, a marriage,” said Virginie Viard, Chanels creative director.  Creativity is a refuge Such positive energy has been hard to maintain as the pandemic grinds on, delaying the return to the glitz and glamour of live fashion events.”Its pointless to deny that the catwalk shows are a key element, not just for Dior, but for the whole fashion world. The guests are a part of the show,” said Chiuri.She is preparing a pret-a-porter collection for the next Fashion Week in March, though she has no idea what will happen. “The start of the year has been very difficult. There have been ups and downs. Its tiring to constantly find the strength to keep pushing forward. But creativity is a refuge in these difficult times,” she said.  Tarot cards were a refuge for Christian Dior himself, who often turned to them as he built his fabled fashion house through the uncertain postwar years. Chiuris latest designs draw on the famed Visconti tarots of the 15th century, adorned with gold and enamel, richly verdant and geometrical – images that guide the contours of the draped dresses and their time-faded color schemes. The new take on the bar jacket involves black velvet with a new construction of lateral folds, accessorized with trousers and moccasins.Chiuri sticks with her well-known feminist aesthetic of flat shoes – extremely rare in the world of haute couture – while gold and silver cage boots complete the long dresses.The style of the Italian Renaissance is also evoked in the way the materials have been worked. One technique – known as “devoured velvet” – involves removing a layer of the velvet to bring out the gold lamé background on the “thousand flowers” dress, or hand-painted zodiac signs on another.  load_file(“/includes-n/article_share.html”);RELATED ARTICLES Fashion rebellionDonning chic neck-to-toe abayas, models saunter in high heels around a swimming pool in a glitter-filled fashion show … Fashion designer Pierre Cardin buried in Paris’ Montmartre CemeteryFrench fashion designer Pierre Cardin, who died earlier this week at the age of 98, was laid to … Chinese netizens mourn the death of French fashion designer Pierre Cardin Chinese netizens mourn the death of French fashion designer Pierre Cardin, one of the earliest international fashion brands …load_file(“/includes-n/article_most_view.html”);var wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1214244;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes-n/footer.html”);load_file(“/includes-n/addthis.html”);
