Dior Homme Spring 2018 Campaign 

Discover the Dior Homme spring 2018 collection, designed by Kris Van Assche, Creative Director of Dior Homme, and embodied by the actor and House muse Robert Pattinson in the new campaign photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.

An artist’s studio opening over the roofs of Paris is the location in which Robert Pattinson posed for Karl Lagerfeld’s camera. The actor’s contemporary allure, dressed as he is in the Dior Homme spring 2018 collection, is enhanced by the raw and timeless black and white setting. Over the course of the series, Robert Pattinson makes the pieces in this men’s wardrobe designed by Kris Van Assche his own, going from a full suit to a more laid back style, without losing any of his elegance.

Dior Exclusives at Galeries Lafayette

To mark the event La Constellation Dior at Galeries Lafayette, blue, the key color of the Dior ready-to-wear autumn-winter 2017-2018 show by Artistic Director Maria Grazia Chiuri, has been embraced for a collection of pieces exclusively available in the Paris department store. 

With the Rose des Vents bracelet boasting a sapphire and the La Mini D de Dior watch, Victoire de Castellane, Creative Director of Dior Joaillerie, gives blue a precious dimension, teaming it with yellow gold and mother-of-pearl, to wrap around the wrist. On iconic Lady Dior handbags two star motifs from the ready-to-wear autumn-winter 2017-2018 collection have been revisited: I Feel Blue, mixing embroidery and print, and La lune dans mes yeux, which can also be found hand-painted on a bohemian-inspired flap bag, or reinterpreted on dotted tulle ankle boots embroidered with thread and beads. Blue is also employed and paired with gilt for mirrored lens DiorSoRealPop sunglasses, as well as on lacquered Dior Tribales star earrings and on the Les 70 ans de Christian Dior silk twill scarf, covered in astrological signs, alluding to the couturier’s superstitious nature. These twelve signs of the zodiac also appear on a range of midnight blue candles.

Inauguration

We look back at last night’s launch party for La Constellation Dior, which took place at Galeries Lafayette in Paris. Natalia Vodianova, a close House friend, was present with Artistic Director Maria Grazia Chiuri, and wore a midnight blue and gold outfit from the ready-to-wear autumn-winter 2017-2018 collection for the occasion.

The Dior Constellation at Galeries Lafayette

As part of its seventy-year celebrations, the House is taking over the windows and the famous dome of the Galeries Lafayette department store in Paris until October 10th.

The history of Christian Dior is intimately linked with the arts of divination. “Women will benefit you and it is through them that you will be successful,” he was told at a Granville fair when still a child. Throughout his life, the couturier placed his trust in his lucky star, literally and figuratively, because it was a five-pointed star – found by chance on the pavement when he was getting ready to open his couture house – that would become the lucky talisman of both his life and his House. Codes and symbols culled from superstition are present all through the Dior story and they have repeatedly inspired the creative directors who have succeeded the founder: the four-leaf clover, the lily-of-the-valley, tarot... Today they are being given a modern reinterpretation by Maria Grazia Chiuri in her fashion and accessories collections.

 

These  symbols provide the narrative thread for the Galeries Lafayette windows in which the blue-hued looks from the ready-to-wear 2017-2018 collection along with the House’s iconic perfumes are displayed. They can also be found inside the department store, on an immense midnight blue and gold hot-air balloon, floating beneath the soaring stained-glass dome. In addition, the Galerie des Galeries plays host to the exhibition I Feel Blue which brings together the creations by Christian Dior that have inspired Maria Grazia Chiuri's most recent collection for the House: sketches of designs such as Etoile du Nord and Bonne Etoile, their names evoking superstition and the constellations, along with dresses and coats in varying shades of blue.
