Reading time 1 minutes

Fashion is no stranger to a throwback, but for Dior’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri looked back further than most – to the 1950s. That was the decade which saw the evolution of Christian Dior’s ‘New Look’, from the nipped-in waist and full skirts of the Bar suit, to the exaggerated hourglass of the Tulip dress, to the A-line and Y-line silhouettes of his iconic jacket-and-dress ensembles.

It was also the decade of the Teddy Girls, a post-war British youth subculture characterised by sartorial rebellion.

The collection is awash in references to the ‘50s, with tartans and buffalo plaids, full skirts of tulle and jacquard, crisp bar jackets, nipped-waist gowns, and bucket hats galore. And this season’s shoes are no exception either.

Dubbed the Dior Gang, the pumps and boots are designed with low heels and pointed toes, reminiscent of Christian Dior’s original creations. Paying tribute to the Teddy Girls, the shoes are updated with checks in black-and-white or green-and-black combinations, as well as black leather, each design crowned with a sparkling rhinestone buckle. Streamlined and elegant, the Gang shoes prove that Dior never goes out of style. Take a closer look below:
