Prophetic chic: how a Tarot-themed Dior collection came together

In this video, we see the making of Dior’s Spring-Summer 2021 haute couture collection by the Maison’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri… going from the early sketches all the way to director Matteo Garrone’s ‘The Tarot Castle’ – the 15-minute film that stood in for an in-person show in these lockdown times. (Watch it here).

Even if you aren’t familiar with the 78-card tarot deck, the clothes speak for themselves, with the reverie playing to Chiuri’s strengths. Her signature gowns are nipped at the waist, some expertly tailored with matching capes for fairytale fodder, others artfully displaying the hand-painted illustrations of Roman artist Pietro Ruffo. The look-book even enlisted a medieval white horse, further enveloping the collection in fantasy.
