Dior heads to Seville, and more fashion news you missed
Thebe Magugu unveils his new campaign, while Nicholas Daley scores big
Dior’s resort show did not open with a gush of house music, but the rapping of steel-capped shoes outside the Plaza de España in Seville, where two stoney-faced flamenco dancers held court. As their taps began to swell into Rosalía’s Di mi Nombre, a phalanx of high-waisted matador pants, sombreros, Manila shawls, and equestrian uniforms made their way through the square’s arcades, which had been decked in thousands upon thousands of red carnations. Though this could have veered towards the cliché – or worse, corny – Maria Grazia Chiuri exercised constraint, even when all the nipped-in tailoring gave way to tulle prom frocks and off-the-shoulder flamenco dresses. According to the designer, it was all about paying homage to the Mediterranean woman and the heroines of southern Spain.
In other fashion news this week, people are still going on about that old ugly dress, which was apparently destroyed by Kim Kardashian, and the SS23 menswear season kicked-off in London with a stand-out collection from Martine Rose.
