The Star at 30 Avenue Montaigne

As the end-of-year festivities approach, the facade of the House's historic address is lit up by an enormous chandelier. The star that tops it off, a symbol of good luck, recalls the one Christian Dior chanced upon on the street; it was this discovery that convinced him to found his own couture house and would remain in his pocket from that day on.

Based in Brooklyn, this artist’s work explores depth, form and color. For his collaboration with Dior, he took the drawing of a frog from one of his major works, titled Frog 1, and adapted it to create a print employed on a Lady Dior Small, as well as a series of small leather goods and accessories, such as a card holder and a scarf. His work is also characterized by the theme of abstraction, which he has illustrated through two other series of Lady Dior, along with clutches, scarves and stoles. He utilized part of his work Chameleon, composed of abstract lines of sequins that he adapted for the Dior creations. He also took inspiration from his work Paleocene Sunset, its inserts of historical figures like hidden scenes waiting to be discovered.

An artist whose output embraces photography, installations and video, Mat Collishaw opens a window on nature, but always as a detail. His highly visual universe is marked by themes such as life and sexuality. For Dior he drew inspiration from one of his major works to create a very high-definition print on the glazed leather of the Lady Dior bags and clutches and on the silk of scarves. Two butterflies, the first sunny yellow and the second lunar blue, with wings of an almost realistic velvety texture, sit on the black velvet-wrapped charms that spell out the Dior name. The bag and clutch linings, in contrast, are in bright shades of yellow or blue.
