Dior’s Gown Additions in Shanghai, Pink and Red Couture Capsule
Christian Dior SE, commonly known as Dior, is a European luxury goods company controlled and chaired by French businessman Bernard Arnault, who also heads LVMH – the world’s largest luxury group. LVMH (Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton), is a French multinational luxury goods conglomerate headquartered in Paris.
Couture capsule collections are now officially a thing following Dior’s stunning restaging of their spring 2018 couture show in Shanghai.
The house celebrates its special connection to China with the spring-summer 2018 haute couture show in Shanghai, Dior in a statement. “Inspired by the surrealist movement and presented in January at the Musee Rodin in Paris, this collection sees the addition of twelve new designs for the occasion. An object of refinement, the fan influenced the creation of these exclusive looks designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the Artistic Director of the Dior women’s collections.
“In an additional homage to China, Maria Grazia Chiuri offers several of these looks in red. A symbol of good fortune, along with being a favorite hue of the founding couturier who described it as “the color of life” in his Little Dictionary of Fashion, it graces ball gowns as well as a tuxedo with a pleated cape.
Paying homage to Monsieur Dior’s inspirations and creations for our haute couture show in Shanghai, #MariaGraziaChiuri, our Artistic Director, resurrected and redefined the iconic Dior dresses Venus, Junon and Francis Poulenc, as well as a signature-featuring fan found in the Dior archives that recalls our founding couturier’s passion for the Belle Époque. #DiorSavoirFaire Sophie Carre
