French luxury brand Dior has released a fashion film to unveil its 2021 haute couture collection.
Titled "Le Chateau du Tarot," the film replaces a traditional runway show as physical shows remain cancelled amid the pandemic. The whimsical film shows one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by astrological signs of the Western Zodiac. The collection gives a nod to tarot cards, a recurring motif and reference loved by the brand's late founder.
According to a press release, "Le Chateau du Tarot" highlights "the Tarot – as illuminated in the 15th century by Bonifacio Bembo for the Duke of Milan – transpose, in cinematic language, the spirit of the Creative Director's collection, which highlights the magical universe of an art Monsieur Dior loved dearly."
