L.A, 2022-06-24 20:45:17. Dior’s 19,000 flowers at the Paris show see many stars

Paris –

Roses, art, and the world-famous Dior workshops collided on Friday for a creative explosion of sweet scent. Showing the house at Paris Fashion Week was a tribute to the late British painter Duncan Grant and acclaimed member of the Bloomsbury Group, who died in 1978.

VIP guests gaze as they enter a DIOR-marked tent to discover a makeshift country scene – filled with some 19,000 real poppies, wildflowers and plants grown on the hills alongside two reconstructed English country houses. All this for a 10 minute fashion show. The set, of course, was meant to evoke Grant’s rolling landscapes.

There were nearly as many famous faces on display as flowers. David Beckham and his son Cruz, Naomi Campbell, J Balvin, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were among the star-studded front row of Dior gazing through the petals and tufts of grass.

Here are some of the highlights of Friday’s Spring/Summer 2023 offering:

Dior flower power

In the springtime, designer Kim Jones recreated the painter’s world not just by evoking his masterpieces, but by making the actual clothes he wore while working—like the straw gardening hat reimagined as a pergola built on a baseball cap, designed by Stephen Jones hat maker. Grant’s signature suits were also a major theme, yet they were reinvented in Jones’ style with smart fashion twists.

Countless references spread in the 1930s – the artist’s heyday. A snare was used in place of an old scarf on a loose-fitting, double-breasted flannel bodysuit. They hung in the middle abstractly, poking under the jacket. Elsewhere, tailored shorts wore turn-down waistbands in the slightly more grandiose styles of the time between the wars.

The wool socks and gardening shoes were a playful nod to the painter, who spent most of his time outdoors, but also a nod to Jones himself, a designer whose humor was never far away. The group’s palette was, fittingly, a garden and pond inspired by green and blue as well as pastels.

Paul Smith Layers

A fresh and delicate wardrobe awaits guests at Paul Smith’s spring show in southeast Paris.

Theatrical and visual layers were the themes of the season, in bread-and-butter-based views of British bread of colour, floral and appropriate look.

A beautiful, loose and flowing silver coat set, modernize with the suit shorts that led the eye to the sock and suede leather boots.

Elsewhere, it was the realm of subtle optical illusion in ornament that gave many kinetic combinations.

The granite-colored tunic shirt is made of fluted fabric that drapes into a zigzag shape as the model runs.

JUNYA WATANABE Makes a statement in denim

The Japanese fashion designer — one of the patrons of Comme des Garcons couturier Rei Kawakubo — put an urban, yet soft, show for his eponymous brand on Friday.

At the heart of Junya Watababe’s designs is a concept called ‘Monozukiri’, which literally means ‘production’ or ‘manufacturing’ in Japanese, and it has become for him knowledge of the latest technologies for making clothes.

Here in spring, contrasting prints, patterns, and textures create visual tension, while distressed jeans with a bias cut, full of patterned pops of color, add some playfulness to the ensemble.

Coca-Cola logos and images of hamburgers on jeans were made to comment on the capitalist nature of the world – and the fashion industry itself – in a gentle moment of contemplation.

There were plenty of interesting design twists: The Japanese denim jean jacket had a royal solid, which contrasted nicely with the shabby chic of one of her missing chest pockets.


Guests sat like students in the school boardroom in classes for Kidsuper.

The irony was not lost on the guests, who appreciated the ridiculous atmosphere of the alternative home and its attractive mixed designs.

Urban style ran throughout the vibrant look.

The faces drawn in the prints stared from cloaks, trousers and coats in colorful clothes covering the colors of the rainbow.

The strongest look of the 24-look collection was a multicolored puffy dress in lime, bronze, and orange tulle that looked a bit like Cyndi Lauper reimagined by the nursery teacher.
