ackstage before presenting her second couture collection for Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri made no mention of the show’s travel-themed set featuring a thicket of exotic foliage and a menagerie of large, stylized wooden animals. Nor did she of Christian Dior’s quote, cited in the show notes, that he sought to “address all types of women in all countries.”

Instead, Chiuri said that, with the major exhibit at Les Arts Décoratifs opening tonight and celebrating all of the house’s couturiers, for fall she wanted to “make the inspiration only about Mr. Dior, to make an homage to Mr. Dior.”
