Dior brings a touch of elegance and audacity to any look, scarves shine at the heart of the Dior AW2021/22 ready-to-wear collection.
The House’s emblematic codes as well as works created for Dior by the Italian artist Pietro Ruffo are transposed onto fabric through a first essential step, colorization, thanks to the method of pen engraving.
The poetic sketches then unfurl on exceptional silk inside the House’s Italian Ateliers, through silkscreen or inkjet printing. In the next phase, the silks are repeatedly passed through a halo of steam, then washed in successive baths until the ideal look and feel has been achieved.
Once cut by hand, the squares are frayed or rolled in a final finishing touch. Infinitely meticulous gestures, expressions of the special attention to the art of detail that makes Dior scarves so refined. Discover what happens behind the scenes of this passionately reinvented savoir-faire.
