A true celebration of Puglia’s traditional arts and crafts, the 2021 Cruise collection highlights the excellence of these priceless skills. From the art of weaving to Luminarie– dazzling illuminated architectures – and from the essential role of dance to the power of ritual music, the House of Dior actively supports this pluralistic and infinitely precious culture while paying homage to Nature and the region’s unique landscapes, as a land that has always been close to Maria Grazia Chiuri’s heart.
Because these many creative dialogues between Paris and Lecce began long before the health crisis and the confinement, it was essential for Dior to continue these collaborations, to support and showcase the virtuosity of these artisans and artists more than ever. So that the beauty of their gestures, emotion and poetry may endure.Dior extends its sincere gratitude to the Archbishop of Lecce, S.E.R. Monsignor Michele Seccia, as well as the City of Lecce and its Mayor, Carlo Salvemini, for the great opportunity of holding this event in the Puglia region. Our House is both delighted and honored, more than ever, to be able to collaborate with all of these talented artisans and local artists.
