EXCLUSIVE: DIOR 'TAROT' EVENT CHEZ ANTONIA
IN THE CARDS
With an exclusive in-store event, Antonia unveiled the Dior Cruise 2018 collection filled with top clients and influencers such as Eleonora Carisi, Catherine Poulain and Candela Novembre.
For the occasion, from the windows to the interiors, the store was decorated with the key theme of the collection - the motherpeace tarot created by Karen Vogel and Vicki Noble in the Seventies. The showcase included creations that revisited the feminine illustrations from the divinatory cards that inspired Dior’s Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri for the season.
To wit, there were paintings and hangings featuring arcana from the deck such as the wheel of fortune, the Grand Priestess and the Sun.
On display, round minaudieres, different models of the Lady Dior and Dioraddict bags, silk scarves, knits, bomber jackets with patches and leather biker jackets, plus other creations featuring these feminine figures either printed or hand-painted.
“The tarots of Karen Vogel and Vicki Noble are powerful, they are the artistic expression of a feminism capable of healing and strengthening. I wanted to reuse them with a pop spirit. These tarots are linked to the star signs, also dear to Monsieur Dior. Fortune telling and tarots are part of the codes of the house as I discovered when immersing myself in the history of Christian Dior, and I’m appropriating them by reinterpreting them in each collection with a different spirit,” says Maria Grazia Chiuri.
