Savoir-faire: the Royaume d’Amour Jacket

Follow us as we visit the Vermont embroidery ateliers, to see the work being done on the jacket Royaume d’Amour. This complicated creation called for a maximum of expertise and patience from the petites mains, as they translated the design from the house of Dior onto fabric using colored threads. Its poetic motif, inspired by Madeleine de Scudéry’s “carte de Tendre”, represents the different stages of love in a relationship.

Savoir-faire: The Abandon Coat Dress

Inspired by a design created by Christian Dior in 1948, this gray wool crêpe coat dress was treated by the House's haute couture ateliers like a piece of architecture in fabric in order to successfully capture the asymmetric collar volume as Maria Grazia Chiuri intended it.
