A dreamy and mystical Dior film opened the luxury brand’s digital presentation during Paris Fashion Week. The piece was directed by Italian filmmaker Matteo Garrone and is titled ‘Le Mythe Dior.’
The visual aesthetic of the film is lush and ethereal, further elevated by the music which can be characterized as soft and elegant. The opening sequence sees a number of women fitting Dior’s Autumn/Winder 2020 silhouettes onto doll mannequins which are placed in a dollhouse. Later, these designs are worn in their entire glory by nymphs.
In addition, the dreamy Dior film also pays tribute to a traveling exhibit from 1945. Dubbed ‘Théâtre de la Mode,’ the historical reference presented small-scale fashion mannequins during World War II. The incorporation of this sequence further blurs the line between fashion and the art of film.
