At Dior, art meets fashion for the finest causes.
The renowned Milanese illustrator Olimpia Zagnoli was commissioned by an admirative Maria Grazia Chiuri to capture the essence and unique spirit of the #DiorFall20 collection.
The artist looked to its “rigorous cuts and silhouettes and, at the same time, its ability to adapt to different personalities,” expressing her own idea of the season’s Dior woman, conveying fully-realized characters and evocations of fabulous fashions using minimalist mark making, as here where a few lines communicate the graphic impact of a striped outfit and the eye-catching effect of coral-embellished earrings.
About Olimpia Zagnoli
“After graduating from some kind of design school in Italy, OZ burst upon the New York media scene in a colorful cloud of charm, humor, and easy-to-work-withiness (an essential new adjective when describing young people) in 2008. She then proceeded to take The New York Times, The New Yorker, and the New York subway system by talented storm. OZ’s bright visions pop up -and sometimes out- in all the best places, including Fendi, Apartamento Magazine, The Guggenheim Museum, and the G train. She thinks fast, draws faster, and eats spaghetti like a lady.” – says Olimpia’s official website www.olimpiazagnoli.com
