A few days ago (well, a few weeks ago, but who counts? :P) we heard Maria Grazia Chiuri’s definition of Couture at the Dior show, and now we know what her ex-(designer) partner thinks of it. “With ready-to-wear, your vision of beauty relates to the times you are living in,” said Pierpaolo Piccioli. “Couture involves a deeper and more intimate perspective, to go further into your own vision of beauty.”
Our own vision of beauty might be very subjective, but there is no denting that certain things draw most of the people with the same amount of force. Things, like quality, the golden ratio, beautiful strong colours or shiny intricate objects especially when they suggest wealth.
These all relate to the classic beauty but usually that’s not enough, not after a while anyway. Here comes the personality, that little bit of twist, asymmetry or flaw what makes it characteristic therefore more interesting. Now you decide what that means to you, and wether you like this collection. I, for one, am not against his vision, even if it would be quite different.
