The Dior 2022 Cruise Collection

The 2021 Dior show itself (the video below is of the live event) took place in the Panatheanic Stadium of the city and the clothes were inspired by Ancient Greek costume but a photoshoot for the Dior magazine referenced a previous event in 1951. 

In that year the fashion house came to Athens to complete an ambitious and iconic shoot on the Acropolis itself. The event was for a feature in Paris Match with photographs by Jean-Pierre Pedrazzini. Open up this link in Google Chrome for a translated version of the Greek website that includes some pictures of the shoot. 

Of course, not everyone is pleased that the monuments were used for this purpose (and I think the 1951 outfits and photos are more in keeping with the drama of the setting than those of last year) but it must have been an amazing experience to be part of an event like this.
