Peter Philips on Color

In the “Colorama” room of the exhibition Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams, the hues of the dresses and accessories form a dialogue with the House’s mastery of color in makeup.  We turn the spotlight on the man who’s reinventing it season after season, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup since 2014.

"I tell stories through my pallets and my collection. From the day I started working with makeup up until today, I have archived all the colors and put them in small plastic jars. I also collect bits of fabric and objects whose color and brilliance inspire me," says Peter Philips. Entering the world of makeup following his studies in graphic design and fashion, the Creative and Image Director of Makeup for the House shares with Christian Dior a passion for color. He celebrates it in his creations, offering the women of today beauty in the colors of Dior fashion. First of all comes red, a color so emblematic of the House. Peter Philips uses it to enhance a smile or to brighten the look with a dash of daring, as in this beauty look photographed by Richard Burbridge in 2015 and shown in the exhibition. There’s also Rouge Dior's bold palette, in which the shades of red, pink and Nude are joined by a gray, a midnight blue, a luminous yellow or an electric green - a tint that is found on the lips of the model Lindsey Wixson in a graphic shot dating from 2016. With black, Peter Philips celebrates the return of eyeliner and the defiantly modern and sexy woman; a woman who has fun with her make-up, decorating her eyes with a little star, as in this photograph from 2003. Yellow has something modern, solid and graphic; a powdery pink is always pretty and there is always room at Dior for a pink that pushes the boat. Lastly, gray is contemporary and elegant, it is the shade of the rising generation. Peter Philips loves color and employs his talent to continuously  things better and differently from what already exists by coming up with new challenges for the House, while retaining the elegant and sophisticated signature of the Dior woman. A Dior woman whom he reinvents season after season, in close collaboration with Maria Grazia Chiuri, behind the scenes at the fashion shows. For the Artistic Director’s first haute couture show, small stars lit up the eyes of the models in their ball gowns. And for the intrepid explorers of the show on July 3rd, the Creative and Image Director of Makeup conceived a nude beauty look: "It is almost more complicated to make the look natural than to do very avant-garde,” he explains. “Giving an impression of perfect skin is actually very technical."

Installation: Colorama

Red like the Lady Dior bag, a lipstick or a nail varnish, pink like a floral dress, yellow like a pair of pumps, green like the background of an illustration by René Gruau. In the exhibition Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams the palette of House creations dialogues with a sensibility for color evident in the makeup of Serge Lutens, Tyen and Peter Philips.
