For Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2020, Maria Grazia Chiuri kept it in the family—taking inspiration from the house’s founder’s sister, Catherine Dior. It’s not a great leap, looking at the show, to realize she was an avid gardener and fiercely independent before it was fashionable to be so. Charming floral prints, feathered jackets, and houndstooth mini dresses, paired with little gardening hats, served as a reminder from Chiuri to create our own “inclusive garden” and re-establish a balance between humans and the planet.

The garden: the beginning of a long journey. For @dior SS20 #MariaGraziaChiuri created an "inclusive garden", where in a moment suspended in time, co-existence and diversity flourish. The models, in their little staw hats, delicately embroidered sundresses and classic tailoring in earthy tones, were the gardeners of #dior. The collection was inspired by archival photographs Catherine Dior, sister of Christian Dior, who was gardener of the house and in life. Her nick name was 'Miss Dior'. #pfw #harpersbazaarsg #paris
