The new fragrance from La Collection Privée Christian Dior, Fève Délicieuse, is both an homage to Christian Dior’s gourmet tastes and a celebration of the aromas of an emblematic perfume-making element: the tonka bean. Christian Dior was passionate about everything that had to do with French art de vivre, and about gastronomy in particular. He loved full and refined flavors.
After a voyage being carried along by the four cardinal points, now it’s time to discover the inspiration behind the new collection Rose des Vents designed by Victoire de Castellane, the creative director of Dior Joaillerie. At all began at Granville, in the villa where Christian Dior had spent his childhood. Overlooking the sea, perched on a cliff-top, it was named Les Rhumbs, the name given to the thirty-two divisions of the wind rose (the 'rose des vents' in French), and in effect, everything about it alludes to travel. The Channel Islands are visible on the horizon on a good day, and the boats that passed near the steep coastlines had the Americas as their next stop.
A central theme of the ready to wear collection for autumn-winter 2015-16 shown on March the abstracted animal prints designed by Raf Simons take their inspiration from those Christian Dior used on his own creations.
