A special screening of acclaimed director Marianna Economou’s The Greek Bar Jacket, in collaboration with the LMU Caloyeras Center.
Marianna Economou’s new documentary traces the making of the DIOR Cruise 2022 collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri, which celebrated the eternal beauty of Greece and was unveiled in a spectacular show in the Kallimarmaro Stadium in Athens last June.
The film offers an intimate view into the conceptualization and realization of the Greece-inspired collection.
Economou traveled across the country to visit the Greek artisans who collaborated with Chiuri. The result is an intimately personal exploration of the creative forces and influences that contributed to the collection, as well as a celebration of the specialized savoir-faire of both the local Greek artisans and the French fashion house’s own ateliers.
This special event will also exhibit Myrto Papadopoulos’ spectacular photography that gives us a behind-the-scenes look at The Greek Bar Jacket and the Greek artisans who worked with the Dior house.
