CHIA(R)EVOLUTION

 

            

Last September, Maria Grazia Chiuri used her debut collection for Dior as an opportunity to make a strong statement. Halfway through the show a model traipsed down the runway in a flowy skirt paired with a plain white t-shirt that stated, with unmistakable bluntness, “We Should All Be Feminists.” Another ensemble a bit later in the lineup featured a second white top that added, “DIO(R)EVOLUTION.” The move caused a stir, as it undoubtedly was meant to, and we are observing the reverberations this fashion season. Outside the Dior Haute Couture show in Paris, Chiara Ferragni was spotted in a ruffled skirt and a crisp blazer that didn’t quite hide the t-shirt she wore with unshakable self-possession and style. — jas
