'La Protagonista' Gown Savoir-Faire

For this Dior Haute Couture Couture Spring-Summer 2021 evening dress by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the specialist Jean-Pierre Ollier was called on to recreate an 18th-century découpage technique known as 'lacca povera'.


Using screen-printed motifs that are then hand-painted and embroidered on lace, whose elements are painstakingly cut and pieced together instead of being joined by regular seams, this is an exceptional example of Dior savoir-faire.
