Maria Grazia Chiuri introduces the macro-cannage motif for Autumn/Winter 2021 ready-to-wear and accessories
Maria Grazia Chiuri reinvents iconic House codes for Autumn/Winter 2021, splashing the new macro-cannage motif across accessories and ready-to-wear. Rock ‘n’ Roll meets femininity with tough-as-nails boots and delicate chiffon skirts, captured in front of a burnt-orange backdrop to dial up the drama. Cannage adds flair, modernity and elegance with an athletic edge and the House has reinvented the emblematic design for a new generation. Macro-cannage takes pride of place on separates, outerwear – including the Maison’s iconic Bar jacket – and accessories including the Lady D-Lite bag and Dior Book Tote. The Dior Caro boasts a sumptuous leather finish allowing wearers to mix and match avant-garde patterns and materials for the ultimate style statement.
A signature of the House, cannage topstitching first appeared in 1995 on the ChouChou bag, later dubbed the Lady Dior. The design detail was borrowed from the chairs that lined the Maison’s haute couture salons and was a favourite of Lady Diana’s, prompting the name change. Reinvented for new generations, the latest iteration is the Lady D-Lite which features 3D macro-cannage embroidery and Christian Dior signature.
