It’s 6 am in te morning while we are driving to Palais Royal to shoot  in Paris at the Louvre. It is still dark and only when we arrive, after passing through the wonderful Jardin de Tuilerieën, the sun is slowly coming up. It feels magical to have the Louvre all to ourselves. There is literally nobody to be seen anywhere.  In a couple of hours this place is crowded with tourists from everywhere in the world, but now it seems like we are the only ones that are allowed to enjoy the  silence of this wonderful and world famous place.

And then to remember that this was all just the start of a very special day, because  later after the shoot, we were are also invited to the headquarters of Dior at Avenue Montaigne number 30 to see the debut collection of Maria Grazia Chiuri the first woman ever to take charge as creative director. Christian Dior opened this amazing office in 1946 and it was an honour to be invited to this special occasion.


At Dior we saw the debut collection of  beforehand, I was very, very excited and curious to see what direction Maria Grazia Chiuri would take with her debut collection. It turned out to be a collection with the message ‘that there is really not one kind of woman’ and included a lot of both sporty and fragile elements. The balance between the two leads to a whole series of relatable, simple, practical pieces and aims to attract a new audience. Maria Grazia Chiuri definitely created a wonderful and very special new collection. The white t-shirt with the text ‘we should all be feminist’ says it all and personally I fell in love with multiple pieces and  in particular some romantic/fragile see-throughs with tule.
