All the Colors of Dior Musée des arts décoratifs, paris

Welcome to the world of Christian Dior, a world spanning all colors on the spectrum...

From the very first creation by Christian Dior...

... to John Galliano' s extravaganza inspired by Leon Bakst stage designs around 1910... a Drip Painting Pollock-inspired dress by Marc Bohan in 1984

Or the world of Versailles and Marie-Antoinette...

... revisited by John Galliano...

Or an Hokusai's Great Wave dress.

It's all about colors and art for the world of Dior.

The Musée des Arts Décoratifs set a spectacular rainbow exhibit mixing old and new creations, alternating miniature and life size dresses punctuated with iconic accessories spanning decades of style. Dior, J' Adore!

Eponymous Creative Designers such as Yves Saint-Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano and today Raf Simons, all have come to create for the Couture House of Christian Dior.

They all interpreted the spirit of Dior and his New Look designs in their own way. Still strictly respecting lines and motifs such as quintessential Dior bows and side belts, it's surprising to have to double check if a design is from the 1950's or a more recent Raf Simons.

Like with this Dior dress from 1949 at front compared to the Raf Simons at the back, worn by Natalie Portman for the Miss Dior ad.

Sumptuous embroidered flowers and lace on unmistakably Dior lines and skirts for miles...

Iconic New Look, it's Haute Couture time!

Until the big Dior Finale...The Bal!

Simply superb! Simply Dior!
