Out of the numerous, many style present livestreams I’ve taken in over the previous 12 months, Dior Cruise 2022 might’ve had the most captivating setting. Under the dark, open, Grecian sky, with temples of the Acropolis in the background, the massive Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, Greece was set up with a long row of lit torches and a live orchestra featuring the Greek singer Eleni Poulou. Cinematically spotlit models slowly circled the track-turned-runway for a 30-minute show that felt dramatic and ceremonial, culminating in an over-the-top fireworks display.

Maria Grazia Chiuri’s starting point was a series of photographs from 1951 of a couture collection by Mr. Dior himself, taken near the Pantheon. The actual clothes reflected the themes incorporated into the spectacular Olympics-inspired backdrop, with Chiuri tackling everything from athleisure to ethereal Grecian draping. We all know the Italian designer has made feminism, and the exploration of femininity, a cornerstone of her work for Dior, and so she tapped into the many female deities of Greek mythology for inspiration. The works of Giorgio De Chirico, and vases decorated with wrestling matches by Alexandre Iolas, were also on her mind.
