Beautiful? Yes. Truly royal? No. This collection by creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri is inspired by Monsieur Dior's affinity for clairvoyants and Maria's experience of tarot cards, which at face value seem to be a fantasy game, but beneath the surface, belie a fateful connection to demonic influence.
There is never a shortage of beauty inspo in fashion weeks and the runway shows, if you know where to look. However, high fashion continues to search after the existential and settle for a counterfeit version of royalty. Case in point: Dior (pictured above). Everything either adds to or takes away from the human spirit, and while we see such beauty there, it's in honor of a non-prince and not the King... We found ourselves lost in the beauty and messaging on these pieces, because it all looks so eerily familiar... What they are trying to land on is a true mysticism in the King of Kings.
There is a power older than the Visconti-Sforza tarot collection, and it is our challenge to not fall for the duplicate, but to seek out the true original.
Alternatively, for all things fashion and personal style, try out the all new Worthy of Wearing revolution happening over on instagram, or purchase the WOW book. More to come on this later, but for now, go check it out.
“I wanted to focus on the essence of things. I think it’s a sign of the times. But I didn’t want anything bleak or heavy. The desert, to me, symbolizes that yearning for serenity, open space, a slower rhythm. The clothes are also softer, the spirit of the collection is more gentle, stripped back.”
- Anthony Vaccarello
Creative Director at Saint Laurent, Mr. Vaccarello took himself into a place of solace when designing his line for the fashion house this Spring. Even fashion's names are sensing what we Royals know... We’re all in need of grounding right now. Keep creating inner and outer havens where your soul can rest. Journaling in silence or to moving music is a practice that brings clarity amid the inner voices that compete for the truth you believe about yourself. Royal identity is grown in the knowing...so journal your way to knowing. Ambiance can help, so, have you seen The Lent Edit? Try out something from this curated collection of Royals’ favorite pieces for infusing grace into the spring season. Candles, blankets, holy objects, sacred art and more... Or, consider gifting to someone in need of peace...meaningful, blessed gifts are the gifts that last.
