Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri stated that the ‘70s and its feminist awakening gave her the attitude that she has: strong, empowered and unafraid. As a result, her autumn/winter 2020 collection laid the foundations for a ‘70 inspired season. Think: sensual velvet textures, denim on denim, fringed dresses and all-out leather jumpsuits.

Though the collection still included the house’s signature tailoring, and a fresh spin on the signature bar jacket, the mood for AW20 was more relaxed with mini-skirts adorned in blanket checks, logo-adorned anoraks, plaid capes and bomber jackets all on the agenda. Captured here by photographer Greg Adamski, the versatile pieces come to life against an abandoned backdrop and Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior proves just as powerful as it is poetic. “When women strike, the world stops,” says Chiuri.
