In a transcendent scene, Dior set its Cruise 2018 show—the house’s first collection with Maria Grazia Chiuri at the helm—amid the rolling hills of Calabasas, California. Echoing the spirit of Georgia O’Keeffe, peasant-style dresses cast with hieroglyphic-inspired graphics were met by utility pieces with a rainbow punch. Elegant details like feathering, satin tassels and fringe took eveningwear to new heights with subtle logos peeking from beneath sheer gowns.
A decidedly practical item grounding the wildness of the runway? A flat leather slingback finished with lace-up detailing and metal grommets. While the fashion-forward prairie vibe of the collection may not be for everyone, we can already tell these sleek sandals will be a favorite among the style set, accompanying jeans, dresses and skirts galore. Ahead, click through for a few of our favorite looks from the show, all featuring the sure-to-be cult shoe.
