There are connections, unions, and conjunctions that without proper exploration and intimate, personal storytelling, would remain hidden in the folds of history.
Luckily for us, director Marianna Economou had the opportunity to follow the conceptualization and creation of Maria Grazia Chiuri‘s Dior Cruise 2022 collection.

What came out is the stunning documentary “The Greek Bar Jacket“, an all-encompassing, personal and intimate exploration of the references, influences, collaborations, moments and emotions that made the Dior Cruise 2022 collection inspired by ancient Greece unique and distinctive.
The film reveals the incredible skills of a number of Greek artisans put together with those working within the atelier of the maison Dior, as well as showing us the role played by the art and architecture of classical Greece in a sort of intercultural and temporal exchange.
This union between Dior and ancient Greece turns out to be a simple and intuitive syntony that sees its perfect exemplification in the Cruise 2022 collection. A story, that of “The Greek Bar Jacket”, which travels throughout the Peloponnese showing us the encounters, comparisons and work that are the basis for the construction of the collection.
The tailor Aristeidis Tzonevrakis, the textile company of Kostas Mouhtaridis and Dimitra Kolotoura up to the jacquard illustrations of Christiana Soulou and many other local artisans who show us how the classicism of ancient Greece has been married to perfection with the elegance and refinement typical of the French maison.
The past and the present are aligned marking the immortal power of beauty that can never be scratched by the passage of time.
