Dior is bringing back leopard print for its Fall Winter 2024 collection

Dior Fall Winter 2024

Maria Grazia Chiuri stepped back in time to 1967, a year during which the French Maison gave birth to Miss Dior – its first ready-to-wear line. Accordingly, the Dior Fall Winter 2024 collection was distinctly youthful, sprinkled with Marc Bohan's distinct colour palette and the shrunken hemlines associated with a generation of women ready to leave their mark on the world. For all the details from Dior Fall Winter 2024, keep scrolling.


The front row

Seated with the best view of the collection were names like Rosalía, Jisoo of BLACKPINK, Jennifer Lawrence (who, it's said, lit up at the trio of leopard print looks), Natalie Portman and Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki.


The models

Taking a turn down the runway were fashion week stalwarts like Diane Chiu, Australia's Ella McCutcheon, Sophia Lisboa, Nyaduola Gabriel, Catarina Guedes and the prolific América González.


The set

Maria Grazia Chiuri is known for her collaborations, and for Fall Winter 2024, the Dior creative director tapped Indian artist Shakuntala Kulkarni to create bamboo sculptures for the set. RUSSH fashion director Charlotte Agnew described the installation as creating a feeling that the "room was wrapped in gold".


The clothes

First order of the day: this collection makes us want to wear leopard print again. The print accounted for all of four looks, yet it had a dramatic impact. Appearing on a knitted skirt and short-sleeve cardigan, a trench, belted shirts and shorts, and a double-breasted jacket, the pieces would suit both a wealthy old lady and a young woman with great taste. Mob wife meets Truman Capote's uppercrust Swans.

The final evening looks were particularly striking, especially two shift dresses that were beaded and featured dancing fringe hems. Along with a black floor length gown that skimmed the figure and was decorated with a beaded neckline. Slouchy leather boots also caught our eye – another sign of the pirate trend, perhaps?

Elsewhere, there was large "Miss Dior" script painted in black across blazers, long-line skirts and trench coats. Hair was subtly coiffed, with turtleneck sweaters, tilted fedoras, opaque sunglasses and mary jane shoes.
