Raf Simons announced the past october that he wouldn’t continue the following season with the Dior maison. No-one could have imagined. But people interested in the fashion world couldn’t know that it would be more unexpected who would be the successor. Maria Grazia Chiuri, the creative director from Valentino next to Pier Pado Piccidi, would be the first woman to head the maison.
The 8th of July Dior announced the successor from Raf Simons, the first woman in Dior’s history. It’s an important change for the house, that used to be managed by males directors Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and of course, Christian Dior.
Chiuri maybe would give an interesting turn to the known brand, her romantic and feminine touch that has been exposed in the lasts Valentino collections. It would be contrasted with the Raf Simons’ avant-garde genre. Who knows what would happen in the following Dior’s collection; we are eager to see it.
