In a hypnotic new video, debuting exclusively with L'Officiel USA, Dior takes you on an Abstract Voyage that is its Fall 2017 haute couture collection. The impressionist-quality video opens to a cloudy atmosphere where young women, like stark apparitions, move to the cinematic sound of a sojourn.
Lithe, ultra-pale models in tones of black, white, and violet gray embody the elegant coats and vaporous dresses like watery inklines. Headstrong and steadfast they move through a kind of fog as if waiting on a ghostly platform for the next train to Paris.
Abstract Voyage was filmed by Manon Gicquel during a shoot with photographer Sarah Moon, the first woman to shoot the famed Pirelli calendar. The commissioning of two women artists aligns perfectly with Maria Grazia Chiuri's dedication to female empowerment. Her feminist messages have won her recognition by the British Fashion Council, who will award the designer with the Positive Changes Award at the 2018 Fashion Award.
