There’s something quite measured in the way that Maria Grazia Chiuri approaches the modern Dior woman. This season’s outing, her second ready-to-wear collection, but third in total for the house (couture back in January), seemed to combine a street sophistication. So hoods were plentiful but...
There’s something quite measured in the way that Maria Grazia Chiuri approaches the modern Dior woman. This season’s outing, her second ready-to-wear collection, but third in total for the house (couture back in January), seemed to combine a street sophistication.

It’s only really a niche audience who will ever recall certain heritage house rules anyway, and whether they can or should be adhered to, to make them relevant once more, is another story. But one can try. And Goga Ashkenazi, the Kazakh-Russian businesswoman,...
