Maria Grazia Chiuri’s blue collection for Dior captured attention, it could not be missed. There were the blue jeans and the leather caps, the collection could not be missed. Cathy Horyn was less the convinced, but rarely have her outspoken views impeded a commercial giant like LVMH. The collection nevertheless is out there in the world, advertising campaign and all. On the editorial side, the collection has legs and can be seen in the pages of the 14 August 2017 issue of ELLE France starring one-time Dior model Esther Heesch. The Germany beauty made her memorable debut for Raf Simons for his inaugural collection for the storied French house, immortalized in the documentary Dior and I (2014). Here Esther (pictured) is on the page wearing a blue jumpsuit from the Dior Fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection. There are other looks in this story, all of which carry echoes of the blue palette so comprehensively explored by Maria Grazia Chiuri.
