Discover the Dior Spring-Summer 2021 collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri, unveiled in an atmospheric show space featuring a previously unrealized work by Italian visual artist Lucia Marcucci, ‘Vetrata di poesia visiva’, a collage of illuminated imagery and text in the manner of stained glass windows. The show was scored with a performance of ‘Sangu di Rosa’, a choral work by Lucia Ronchetti sung by Sequenza 9.3. The unveiling of the collection is preceded by ‘To Cut Is To Think’, a specially commissioned short film by Alina Marazzi about the life and work of Lucia Marcucci.
Guests attending the just-unveiled Dior Spring-Summer 2021 show in Paris were treated to a screening of “To Cut Is To Think,” a specially commissioned short film by Italian director Alina Marazzi celebrating the legacy of Lucia Marcucci, a committed figure of the Italian avant-garde. A young female character based on the artist’s alter ego is captured wandering through an art gallery-like space, mixing in cut-out and recomposed images and words. The poetic work – available to see in its full version here – also nods to the imaginary worlds that marked Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director of Dior women’s collections, in her youth.
