In the Chantilly manor near Paris, the Dior cruise collection was shown. Creative Director Maria Gracia Chury chose an unusual location for him, which contained surprises.

The designer was inspired by the aesthetics of riding and the life of Mexican women-riders, who are called escaramus. They perform tricks on horses and wear traditional long skirts and pants under them. In the new Dior cruise collection, many things reminded of the rodeo: jockey pants, trench coats, shirts, leather coats, colorful curvy skirts and, of course, hats. And in the final of the fashion show, the guests themselves appeared on horseback.

The defile was held in the castle stables, built in the XVIII century. Guests of the show, among them were Paris Jackson, Yana Rudkovskaya, Tina Kunaki, Derek Blasberg, Daria Strokus and others, settled under a light awning, and the models were almost in the open. And the weather tried to stop them: it was pouring rain.

We are not afraid of rain or thunder, for the first time in my memory the show @dior was held in such extreme conditions,
