Description

Christian Dior (1905-1957) is one of greatest designers of all time and his dazzling, pioneering talent make him the very embodiment of the French couturier. He came to fashion late, after a career as a gallery owner, and his first collection, presented in February 1947, instantly made a splash in the gloomy post-war years. His fresh, nature-inspired Corolla dress, with its nipped-in waist and generous curves, provided such a stark contrast with the prevailing climate of the age that it became the symbol of the “new look”. The designer, who died too young, was to remain at the helm of his label for only ten years, but all of his collections made quite an impact, and a series of talented successors continued his legacy, each of them in turn revolutionising fashion in their respective decades: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, Maria Grazia Chiuri

The famous luxury brand Christian Dior is temporarily deserting its parent company on Avenue Montaigne for major works that should last two years. Meet the inventor of the New Look in a sumptuous ephemeral boutique on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

The trompe l'oeil façade is an identical reproduction of the mythical Avenue Montaigne façade. The regulars of the fashion house will not be lost!
Inside, clothes, perfumes, accessories, leather goods and shoes are waiting for you in a beautiful and subtly refined setting.
