Christian Dior has finally found its new creative director. Maria Grazia Chiuri of Valentino has been named, becoming the first woman to lead the brand in its 70 year history. It was about time, since Christian Dior’s womenswear collections have suffered after the departure of Raf Simons. The recent pre SS||2017 collection [right] for example showed some similarities to jackets designed by the Francesco Scognamiglio the season before [left]. Scognamiglio is an amazing Italian designer who will debut his first Haute Couture show next week in Paris.
