In Christian Dior’s early childhood, the revered designer roamed the Eden-like garden of his Granville family home and cultivated a passion for the lily of the valley — a symbol of purity and joy that declares the arrival of warmer days. Christian Dior confided in his memoirs: “Having inherited my mother’s passion for flowers, I was happiest in the company of plants and gardeners.”

The dear flower became one of his good luck charms and was reflected in his buttonholes or sewn into the hems of his haute couture designs. Today, drawings of lilies of the valley and shamrocks decorate the new tableware line, featuring wickerwork designs like baskets, placemats, frames and boxes, porcelain plates, hand-painted glasses, as well as blown-glass decorative baubles and decanters.
According to WWD, although Dior has offered a porcelain service with a lily of the valley pattern since the 50s, de Castellane felt it was time for a refresh in design. The concept was revisited last year with an earthenware collection, and now the artistic director introduces a Limoges porcelain dinner set with an intricate green-and-white design.
The delicate plates were said to have been designed to suit a variety of interiors. “To give it a more modern, contemporary feel, I have reworked the lily of the valley designs with pencil-like strokes, reminiscent of Toile de Jouy,” de Castellane noted.
As for the Lucky Milly gardening collection, a first for Dior Maison, the springtime idea continues in encapsulating Monsieur Dior’s idyllic memories. The series, embellished with the lucky four-leaf clovers, includes an apron, gloves, pots, tools and a watering can. Along with a handwritten ‘Christian Dior’ signature, the accessories come in lush botanical shades of white, green and ochre.
The coveted collection is available on dior.com and will be sold in Dior Maison stores worldwide.
