Take swirls into the outside world with button-down shirts, denim dresses and tote bags dipped in Dior’s ever-so-stylish take on tie-dye
When it came to lockdown dressing, we embraced fanciful pyjamas, stocked up on luxe loungewear, wore colour-popping leggings on repeat and attempted to tie-dye anything in sight — but how can these trends live beyond our four walls? We’re styling silk pyjamas as sumptuous separates for rooftop drinks, saving loungewear for future long haul flights and earmarking leggings for a return to the gym, but the psychedelic swirls of our rainbow hued tees are, sadly, destined to stay at home. Or so we thought.
Offering a fresh outlook on lockdown’s sought-after tie-dye style, Maria Grazia Chiuri has created a print that is polished enough for real life — with day dresses, swishing skirts and jackets adorned in spellbinding swirls for Dior.
Featured in the autumn 2020 collection, the tie-dye pieces interpret codes from the ‘70s and use the house’s precious dyeing technique to create hypnotic patterns in a cool palette of dark navy and denim blue.
Unfurling onto silk twill scarves (that can be threaded through the hair, worn as bandanas or tied at the waist), spreading beautifully across signature bags (including the 30 Montaigne, Saddle and the Dior Book Tote) and printed onto bob hats, the dye creates a unique pattern on each silhouette.
The buttoned midi skirt is a must for the region; whether worn with a crisp white shirt for an office-appropriate ensemble or matched with the co-ordinating shirt for a total look. And if you’re not completely sold on the trend, opt for the slip on sandals with subtle tie-dye soles and a Christian Dior embroidered strap.
