Maria Grazia Chiuri, who adapted slogan T-shirts to high fashion and won praise for her feminist messages, also made a first in her Spring/Summer Couture 2018 collection, featuring 'couture tattoos'. The words "The truth is, it's not a matter of understanding, it's a matter of love", "Dreams come true" belong to André Breton, one of the founders of the Surreal movement.
Breton's words are blended in harmony with the theme of the collection. Maria Grazia Chiuri has inspired her haute couture collection from the work of another surreal female artist, Leonor Fini, and has included her motifs and optical prints from her designs.
In addition to the tulle used with weight in the fashion show, which is dominated by black and white, silhouettes in the form of cages, feather embroidery and patterns resembling optical illusion stand out. It's already clear that the black-and-white checker pattern will appear frequently next season.
