They say a pair of classic, black pumps will take a girl places for life. For its Fall/Winter 2019 collection, Dior introduces a seamless remake of the J'Adior footwear.
Designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, these timeless pumps first made their debut at her first Dior show back in 2017, and are embroidered with over 230,000 stitches. With the launch of this new iteration, it also marks the very first time that the fashion house is producing a pair of shoes made seamlessly from a single piece of fabric.
This is the designer's 3rd year running as the creative director of Dior. Grazia, who has her daughter, Rachele Regini, as her muse, has been known for leading the fashion house's designs in a more youthful direction since she came on board with the brand.
The original J'Adior Pumps (J'Adior being coined from a wordplay with the words 'J'Adore' and 'Dior'), was designed with a small, embroidered ribbon bow at the time of their debut at Maria Grazia Chiuri's first show, Dior's Spring-Summer 2017.
This time, the new pumps continue to sport Dior's iconic white "J'Adior" ribbon, with the ribbons lining the top of the shoes. The process of crafting each pair in the brand's ateliers extends beyond nine hours.
