Dior Corset 2019

Projects Series

Maybe watching “Madame Bovary” [2014] again – in all of its endless lacing of and tightening in corsets – convinced me to post this little sketch. 

Mario Sorrenti is the photographer extraordinaire behind it all here. Hailey B-B [Baldwin Bieber] cinched in a Dior corset/gown from its Spring 2019 collection for Harper’s Bazaar March issue.

Maybe it’s just me. Yet, while flipping through the Spring/Summer 2019 collections I felt a bombardment of exaggeration. 

However, Thank you, Maria Grazia Chiuri! Chiuri is the creative director at Dior. As stated on the Dior website, the present campaign came about to embrace “the body in movement”. Nuanced. And gauzy without obscuring.

Within this presentation for Dior, my gaze fixated on only the bottom half of their ad. I had been working on a new triptych for my “Diaphanous” series and it seemed to be lacking… something… So, I have to thank Dior for providing me with an answer, found here:
