Dior's Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri (CHiuri)looked to feisty female gangs from the '50s also known as Teddy Girls for their latest collection. Models wore men's jackets and jeans, velvet scarves and black leather jackets. The subculture translated on the runway through monochrome gingham, big black leather belts, pointy shoes and cut-off bobby socks, all representing a largely forgotten subculture. The Teddy Girls rebelled against austerity after World War II and replaced it with messy exuberance in their clothes. The collection took a break from traditional glamour.
