On April 15, Dior showcased its Ready-to-Wear Fall 2024 fashion show in New York City. Hosted in the city’s instantly-recognizable Brooklyn Museum, the show debuted a collection that pays homage to Paris, New York City, and synergetic cultural fusion. As is tradition for designer Maria Grazia Chiuri, the new collection also connects Dior’s signature elegance to autonomous femininity with its statement items.

The Collection

Dior’s Pre-Fall 2024 collection gracefully synthesizes several influences, yielding a versatile womenswear line. Upon first glance, the collection revisits the late Christian Dior’s infatuation with New York City. The American flag is respectfully reimagined in a V-neck sweater, while a new Saddle Bag finds itself painted in a red, white, and blue color palette. France’s 19th-century gift to the United States, the symbolic Statue of Liberty, decorates a matching two-piece set, a midi-length dress in a classic Dior silhouette, and a trench coat, among other new items. French-honoring counterparts highlight Paris’ Eiffel Tower, connecting both landmarks to Christian Dior’s creativity. 

Maria Grazia Chiuri’s creative direction takes center stage in the reimagined masculine silhouettes worn by actress Marlene Dietrich. Dietrich, a 20th-century on-screen actress and live performer, provoked critics with her clothing choices — which included three-piece menswear suits. In designing Dior’s Pre-Fall 2024 collection, Chiuri turned to Dietrich’s unabashed attitude for inspiration. As a result, the new line proudly debuts wide-leg pants, below-the-knee pencil skirts, sleeveless vests, and, of course, an interpretation of the classic suit-and-tie.
