In 1951, Christian Dior crafted his legendary ‘Ovale’ line, which celebrated the discovery of the ancient Paleolithic cave paintings in Lascaux, France a decade prior. With ancient cave paintings splashed across his signature wasp-waisted silhouettes, the feel of his collection was both untamed and polished at the same time.
For Dior’s Cruise 2018 presentation, Maria Grazia Chiuri captured the same exhilarating juxtaposition, with designs that also paid homage to the Lascaux cave paintings, as well as the art of Georgia O’Keeffe and the work of feminist healer Vicki Noble. And who better to exemplify the Wild Wild West beauty of Dior’s Cruise 2018 collection than Dana Hourani, an influencer and model who is pioneering her own path in fashion?
With Dior bag straps worn as belts, heaps of bold turquoise jewelry, and Dior’s gorgeous hand-painted, embroidered, and embellished westernwear, Hourani effortlessly captures the unbounded and infinitely inspiring spirit of the brand.
