An iconic collection
Graphic and timelessly elegant, Dior VIII recalls the iconic “Bar” jacket. Its name, as if to highlight the very superstitious Monsieur Dior’s lucky number even better, recalls the date of the creation of his couture house, on the 8th of October 1946, the name of his first collection baptised “En Huit” (In Eight) or even the VIIIth arrondissement of Paris, cradle of the House on Avenue Montaigne.
"Black and white would suffice. But why deprive ourselves of colour?" Christian Dior
The ball heritage
Day models with a dial set or not with a trimming of precious stones; cocktail models with a bezel decorated with baguette-cut coloured stones or evening models with the “Dior Inversé” calibre, whose functional oscillating weight placed on the dial recalls the swirl of a ball gown. Dior VIII firmly establishes itself as the reflection of a woman’s wardrobe.
Gold: the material of excellence
Precious and refined, gold embodies the values upheld by the House of Dior since its first fashion show in 1947 and is found in each collection. At Avenue Montaigne, gold is, and has always been, everywhere. It is in the workshops, in seamstresses' agile, expert hands.
