Christian Dior Spring/ Summer 2018 Haute Couture: The Masterpiece Collection.

Maria Grazia Chiuri created THE collection of today. The exquisite looks seemed to satirize an era of serious social problems gracefully masked by a thin black gilding.

KIM_0489As women fight for freedom to possess and control our own bodies, to not be sexualized when we are simply being a mother, or to not be judged when we embrace our female form, the collection spoke out like a #metoo acknowledgement.

The diversity was refreshing. The women were like a small dominant cosmopolitan population drawn together from every corner of the earth.

Each look was a display of excellence. The superlative craftsmanship, extraordinary design, great antiquity, rich materials, the purity of form and artistic genius, the originality and social influence. I would bet good money that many of these looks will find their way onto the red carpet this Oscars season.

I once heard that connoisseurship is knowing a masterpiece when you see it. I see it.
