Thoughts? Anyone have straight on shots focusing on the bags? I didn’t seem to see any more Catherine totes from the shots at Vogue.
SHADOW AND LIGHT: For its spring 2021 campaign, Dior turned to photographer Elina Kechicheva to stage a series of tableaux inspired by the Old Masters.
Known for her painterly use of light, Kechicheva posed models in striking compositions reminiscent of the paintings of Caravaggio, whose pioneering form of realism and intense use of chiaroscuro strongly influenced the development of Baroque painting.

“Celebrating excellence in savoir-faire and creation in all its forms — from Virginia Woolf’s feminist essays to militant collages by Lucia Marcucci that enhanced the staging of the show — the collection is captured in a campaign brimming with the unique power of painting,” the brand said in a statement.
The images, starring Levi Achthoven, Maryel Uchida, Sculy Mejia, Judith Frament and Holly Fischer, were styled by Elin Svahn, with art direction by Fabien Baron. Peter Philips did the makeup, and Guido Palau the hair. The campaign is set to break on Jan. 10.
After several seasons of minimalist ads lensed by Brigitte Niedermair, Dior signaled its new visual direction with its cruise campaign, which featured models in a pre-Raphaelite setting, bathed in dappled light or seen through clouds of dust.
It really depends. They usually stay for around that time but it depends on the item. Handbags tend to stay longer. RTW pieces tend to be sent off.@averagejoe do you know how long Dior's seasonal colors of items tend to stay available for purchase? For instance, the bags from this last cruise collection, do you think certain colors/styles etc. will still be around in 6 months time or are they usually completely phased out for the newer collections?
I just got a bag from last summer. It wasn’t online but it bc was in the stores catalog. Hope this helps.@averagejoe do you know how long Dior's seasonal colors of items tend to stay available for purchase?
