On the eve of Dior’s 70th birthday, a new documentary goes behind the scenes at one of fashion’s most successful houses to unpack the rich history of the brand. The film follows in the footsteps of the acclaimed documentary Dior and I, which focussed on the run up to Raf Simon’s (then Creative Director at Dior) first collection.
Inside Dior widens the narrative, exploring the brand’s history more widely. It first looks back to the beginnings of the house, with Christian Dior’s iconic ‘New Look’ and follows the evolution the label’s signature feminine aesthetic through to present day, with Maria Grazia Chiuri now at the helm. Highlights include the introduction to Francois Demachy, Dior’s ‘nose’, set the rose and jasmine fields of the South of France, and to makeup director, Peter Philips, as he creates the right catwalk look.
Presented in two parts, this new Dior documentary is vital viewing for those looking for unique insight into one of the most game-changing brands operating today. An aesthetic delight, catch the first episode on More4 this evening.
When it launched in 1995, the Lady Dior bag was created to reflect the contemporary nature of the house, embodying a modern identity while continuing to communicate the refined femininity for which the brand is famed. 11 years later, the architectural silhouette has become a canvas for seven of the most exciting artists working today.
This art project was first launched with British artist Marc Quinn who designed a limited edition collection in June. At Miami Art Basel collaborations with Daniel Gordon, Chris Martin, Ian Davenport, Matt Collishaw, Jason Martin and Matthew Porter were also launched. As is to be expected, each collaboration is unique, reflecting the creative inclinations of the artist. The result is a beautiful, and varied collection of Lady Dior bags that will make you fall in love with this classic design all over again.
Available at international stockists across the globe, these new collaborations give a whole new meaning to the phrase arm candy.
Dior have graced the windows of historic Paris department store Printemps Haussmann with lashings of tulle, swirls of snow, cascades of sequins and gold plus the odd unicorn for a festive look that we want to capture in a bauble and hang on our own trees – as soon as we can finally justify getting them. Inside, Dior’s pop-up store has Christmas covered Lady Dior style with specially made Dior dolls, snow globes and advent calendars. We’re officially smitten.
