“Le château du tarot”, short film presenting new collection from Dior
— Dior (@Dior) January 25, 2021
Directed by Matteo Garrone, famed Italian director (Pinocchio, tale of tales), it presents the newest collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri, inspired by astrology and tarot. The film is imbued by the symbolism of the Major Arcana meeting the superb tailoring of the costumes. The high priestess opening the film, with the fool serving as our guide through the manor in an anagnorisis journey, meeting other Arcana like the hanged man, representing the sacrifices to attain knowledge, the temperance for self control, the lovers before ionic columns and double stairs, and the devil, always in the path to achieve the Gnosis.
In order for the couturiers to receive insights from the cards, tarot reader Antonella Trezza, paid a visit to the atelier.
The house of Dior has always been linked to astrology, symbolism and magic in their works, since Monsieur Dior was famously superstitious, being assisted by an in-house sorceress and always following certain rituals like sewing certain plants inside the seams of their garments.
