Sammezzano Castle protagonist of Dior haute couture

In a truly enchanting setting, Maria Grazia Chiuri asked director Matteo Garrone to shoot a short film to present a haute couture collection dedicated to tarot cards.

What will the future be like? Ask the cards. Question the tarot cards. As Maria Grazia Chiuri does in her collection for Dior couture, dedicated to next spring-summer.

The setting is the magical Tuscan Castle of Sammezzano, near Reggello (on the outskirts of Florence) for a short film by Matteo Garrone.

The protagonist - actress and musician Agnese Claisse, Laura Morante's daughter - moves through a maze of timeless rooms. A playful and light story, cloaked in esoteric and sensual atmospheres that evoke an introspective journey. Streamed, due to pandemic, instead of the fashion show, on the platform of the French Chamber of Fashion and on the website of the fashion house.

On fil coupé fabrics worked directly on the mannequins with nets and flowers in 3D- says Maria Grazia Chiuri- In an uncertain moment like this, in which we need to reconnect with the soul of the world, the tarot becomes a sort of self-analysis.
