In 1947, Christian Dior presented his debut show in New York City just one year after launching his iconic New Look collection in Paris. In the following year, he opened his first international ready-to-wear store on 730 Fifth Avenue, a physical space that signalled his commitment to the city, which helped cultivate his relationships with editors like Carmel Snow of Harper’s Bazaar and Diana Vreeland of Vogue, and enhanced his reputation in the elite socialite circles.

For Dior’s Fall 2024 collection, which took place this week, Maria Grazia Chiuri paid homage to the dialogue between New York and the label’s birthplace of Paris. Presented in the Brooklyn Museum, the artistic hub on the western end of Long Island that has long been committed to showcasing feminist art history, a connective bridge was found in Marlene Dietrich, the actress beloved by American audiences with strong ties to the Parisian art scene. Melding a boyish allure with masculine tailoring and a sense of diva glamour, the clothing nodded to the raw, urban spirit of the city, realised in the house’s sublime French craftsmanship. Monochromatic, slouchy-shouldered tailored looks gave way to more decadent black dresses decked in fringe beading. Inky prints of the New York City skyline were dispersed on dresses and trenches, while an athletic, Star-Spangled Banner emblazoned look blended masculine and feminine, acknowledging designer Marc Bohan’s years at the storied house.
