n°285/ Dear Dior

August 2017

by Nathalie Azoulai

Since 1947, Dior epitomizes French couture worldwidely. Even though you dont’ wear Dior, you still like the name and the spelling that mixes up gowns, flowers, perfumes and gold. Some confusion several designers used as a claim let alone a manifesto. To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the brand, the Paris Arts Décoratifs museum showcases some 300 gowns and a great deal of stories about Christian Dior, art, styling, design, inspirations and legacies. Happy birthDior. From July 5 to January 7.
