Origami inspires new Dior Grand Soir collection

Dior Grand Soir Origami collection

The luxury brand has expanded its Dior Grand Soir collection with five new timepieces inspired by the traditional Japanese art of paper folding.

Numbered 27 to 31, the five new watches in the Dior Grand Soir Origami collection are adorned with an array of gemstones in various cuts (triangle, trapezoid, and baguette). Sapphires, diamonds, tsavorite garnets and spessartine garnets embellish the bezels, and the dials are covered in pink and yellow sapphires, spinel and aquamarines.

The origami influence shows in the dial’s mother-of-pearl marquetry, which creates a three-dimensional effect. The faceted hour and minute hands — in white, yellow or rose gold to match the different cases — also echo the appearance of symmetrically folded paper.

In terms of mechanics, the new Dior Grand Soir Origami watches are equipped with the the Zenith manufacture’s Elite self-winding movement, which provides hour and minute indication and has a 50-hour power reserve.

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, The Film

French fashion brand Dior has revealed a behind-the-scenes video for the campaign of its new springtime fragrance, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, a softer version of Dior’s iconic fragrance.

Moving between black and white footage and color scenes, the campaign shot by Sofia Coppola puts the emphasis on signature Dior themes, as well as the inspiration for the scent. As in the house’s fashion and couture lines, flowers, which Christian Dior himself had a particular fondness for, are omnipresent.

Natalie Portman radiates charisma in a sumptuous flowering dress by Dior Haute Couture, designed by Raf Simons, and a natural makeup look.

In this behind-the-scenes peek, we get a glimpse of her taking various poses on the legendary staircase in the house’s storied location at 30 avenue Montaigne in Paris while the song “La Vie en rose” plays.

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet features peony at its heart. This floral note is complemented by Sicilian mandarin essence and rose essence. The composition also gets some depth from white musk.

Dior dedicates new makeup line to Petit Trianon

After drawing inspiration from Versailles and its gold-leafed interiors for its holiday collection, Dior has turned to a more intimate royal home, Marie-Antoinette’s Petit Trianon, for its spring makeup line.

Dior Spring 2014 makeup

Blossoming flowers, soft springtime shades and feminine bow motifs set the tone for the new Dior Spring 2014 makeup collection, inspired by the pastoral ambiance at Marie-Antoinette’s exclusive private residence, the Petit Trianon, located near Versailles.

Trianon Palette

The centerpiece of the new collection, the Trianon Palette comes in an exquisitely refined bow-shaped case containing eye shadows (mocha, pistachio and pink), an eyeliner and a blush. Blush fans will also find two new shades — a coral and a softer pink — in the Diorblush Trianon Edition.

New shades of the Diorshow Fusion Mono matte eye shadows — including black, taupe, mauve and nude — round out the collection alongside two skincare products: Dior’s Pore Minimizer and Glow Maximizer. Finally, Dior is also offering new shades of Rouge Dior lipsticks, Dior Addict lip glosses and nail polishes in shades inspired by the famous French queen.

As seen on the ready-to-wear runways last year, Dior is all about flattering the feminine form this spring, namely by transforming women’s silhouettes into flowers for the SS 2014 season.

The floral inspiration behind the collection is clearly present in the campaign, shot by Belgian photographer Willy Vanderperre. Against the backdrop of blue skies, covered with fluffy white clouds and dotted with birds, models pose like blossoming bouquets in floral prints and cheerful colors.

While Dior describes this latest collection as “a blend of contrasts and paradoxes” (as illustrated, for example, by the combination of tight-fitting jackets with flowing short skirts), one can nonetheless identify many of the fashion house’s traditional style codes. Namely, one photo from the campaign shows a dress with Dior’s signature silhouette: a tight waist and an ample, tutu-like skirt.

Spin Off: Dior VIII Grand Bal “Resille”

Sophistication Renewed 1

When Dior first released its Dior VIII Grand Bal “Resille” series, it wowed us with the openwork oscillating weight on the dial decorated with diamonds. Studded with precious gems, the oscillator is reminiscent of ballroom dancer pirouetting around the dial. Now, the Maison unveils a new version of this timepiece in white ceramic with striking pink sapphires that’s sure to steal the heart of the material girl.

Resille, which means fishnets in French, brings to mind elaborate fabrics favoured by Christian Dior in his famous designs. Limited to 88 pieces, this 33mm model runs on calibre “Dior Inversé 8 ¼” distinguished by a functional openworked white gold oscillating weight on the dial decorated with a latticework of pink sapphires. Its dial is made of white mother-of-pearl and accompanied by faceted hour and minute hands.

White high-tech ceramic and stainless steel form the case case, which is paired with a bezel adorned with a single row of matching pink sapphires, and a decorated mother of pearl ring. The movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. Fitted with a white high-tech ceramic strap with pyramid-shaped links, this version is bound to turn even more heads.

Dior releases ‘Golden Christmas’ video

Christian Dior has released a new holiday beauty video celebrating the magic of this time of year.

Set at “Versailles, the night before Christmas,” the latest beauty film from Christian Dior sees the French luxury brand showing off its Dior Holiday Collection, a collection of warm gold, frozen pearl and pink colors alongside some of the brand’s best loved fragrances.

The magical displays of light begin when a falling star comes to life, and weaves its way through the corridors of the Château de Versailles, illuminating rooms, fountains and gardens, and even bringing the perfume bottle-shaped topiary to life.

Finally the little star settles in a giant bottle of the brand’s J’adore fragrance.

Francesco Russo

Francesco Russo for Dior?

According to WWD, Dior has enlisted Francesco Russo to work alongside Raf Simons on the brand’s women’s footwear collections, although this move has not actually been confirmed yet by either parties.

Francesco Russo

The Italian shoe designer is one of the industry’s most in-the-know design icons. Previously a shoe designer at Yves Saint Laurent, Russo created the mega-hit ‘Tribute’ shoe before joining Sergio Rossi.

Creative director and designer at Sergio Rossi from 2008 to 2013, he left the company to found his own namesake footwear label, which launched this September and is based in Paris. (close to Dior!!).

While the footwear options at Christian Dior have been impressive during Simons’s time in charge, there hasn’t yet been a pair with that instant recognition wow-factor. Has Russo been hired to whip up a best-selling rival to the Tribute? Only time will tell.

Dior Homme Spring 2014 Video

Watch: Dior Homme spring 2014 fashion film

The fashion film for Kris Van Assche’s latest Dior Homme collection was revealed this weekend, and Dior’s newest video portrays the art-influenced garments set against a mysterious landscape.

Surrounded by a colorful yet minimalist geometrical framework, two models strike rigid poses standing on a sand dune next to a deep blue sea.

The boys wear the label’s S/S 2014 collection which features stunning black outerwear, printed contrast colors and shirting in a range of red, blues and whites, and 20th century abstract art pattern prints.

Abstract paint splashes on canvases then appear suspended from the frames, with the reference also picked up as brushstroke stains on the clothes.

The film is soundtracked by the bleeptastic electronic ear candy of Canadian DJ (and former member of The Micronauts) George Issakidis’s “Karreza.”
