Dior Looks to Comfort and 1970s Bohemian Vibes at Paris Fashion Week

Dior swaddled its models in cocooning kaftans at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday to protect them from an uncertain world, in the first big runway show staged in the virus-hit city in nearly seven months.

A dozen sopranos screeched out an ear-splitting mourning dirge as the models winced by. The mounting atonal music was strangely at odds with the looks, which were mostly comfort clothes to soothe nerves and souls addled by months of anxiety.
