Dior Unveils Exclusive Creations by Marc Quinn
The limited edition collection of Lady Dior bags and accessories will debut at the couture house’s largest UK store.
It’s been a big week for Dior – besides the opening of its biggest store on London’s famous New Bond Street, the French couture house has unveiled a selection of Lady Dior bags and small leather accessories that have undergone one of its most striking reinterpretations ever by Marc Quinn.
Famous in the realm of contemporary art for his vivid hyper-realistic oil paintings, Quinn applies his fascination for orchids and irises to the iconic carriers. Several models see the same floral print on both sides of the bag but in reversed colours, while ‘In the Night Garden’ features blooming orchids against a dramatic backdrop of snow or volcanic earth. For something a little subtler, Quinn also created the floral-embossed metallic Lady Dior ‘Fossil Record’ bag. The British artist also celebrated individuality with bright blue irises from the series ‘We Share Our Chemistry with the Stars’.
The new Dior store will not only showcase the French couture house’s full range of ready-to-wear, jewelry, timepieces, children’s collection and Baby Dior, but will also debut Dior HOME, a collection dedicated to homewares and the art of living.
