Dealing with Tarot cards in her new couture collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri opted for mysticism, which is typical of difficult times and disasters.
“What I liked about Tarot is that when you find yourself in a difficult moment, something magical can help us, help us think better,” the designer said about the new collection. The emotional impact of the pandemic and quarantine restrictions is the reason why Curie took this path: “We have been alone for a long time. You think much more about many aspects of yourself and your life … I think this year has changed us a lot."
As for the video about the collection, directed by Matteo Garrone, Maria Grazia explained: “We decided to shoot a story about this girl who enters the castle. It is a labyrinth that represents an inner journey. When she meets each of the figures (Tarot), she must make a decision about her life. On the other hand, she meets aspects of her personality and learns not to be afraid of the future. " The main characters of the collection are the High Priestess, Temperance, Justice and Death, dressed in high-waisted corset bodices in the style of the Renaissance, stately brocade robes and dresses of delicate pleated fabric.
