What does that mean: Diorrodeo. Well it’s the name of the Dior cruise (or resort if you will) collection for 2019. The fashionshow was held at Castle Chantilly, near Paris. Watch the Escaramuzas ride! Watch the models strut in the rain! Fierce!
The female horseback riders are named Escaramuzas, they perform in traditional Mexican rodeo’s. (GoTo dior.com to watch the full show held at May 25 2018 at Chantilly, France)
The Chanel Cruise (a.k.a. resort collection) 2015 show was held in Dubai on an island privately owned by Sheikh Hamdan on May 13th in 2014. Such richness! What a venue, especially built for this occasion! Almost unbelievable that this is actually just a runway. We at Mimi Berlin don’t care for the clothes anymore, and neither should you! It’s the venue that’s the most interesting part of this show. We do wonder; What happened to the building three weeks after the show? Is it still standing, is it abandoned or has somebody moved in? Or maybe it’s a Chanel Mall now? Other questions rise: were the European and American journalists, buyers, celebrity’s and what have you, flown in by Chanel?
For Free? Can’t find the answers to these questions anywhere. It’s a pity “they” never write about those interesting facts, and that we don’t have the time to investigate.
