Eau Sauvage Parfum

An iconic fragrance unveiled in a new light. Reworked by François Demachy, Dior's exclusive perfumer-creator, the warm scent of Eau Sauvage Parfum exhibits a new freshness featuring smooth notes, and borrows the image of the actor Alain Delon, the embodiment of virile and timeless beauty.

Beneath the warm sun of the Grasse back country Eau Sauvage was born, the House’s first men’s perfume. By invigorating the fragrance’s sunny roots, François Demachy now offers a reinterpreted scent, one that's fiery and languorous, fresh and yet enveloping. A fragrance embodied by the actor Alain Delon, as a headstrong and elegant man, with a fascinating animal beauty, expressed in this campaign, drawn from the film The Last Adventure by Robert Enrico.

Dior Homme Winter 2017-2018 Campaign 

On the occasion of his tenth anniversary at Dior Homme, Kris Van Assche calls on the British photographer David Sims to interpret the winter 2017-2018 collection. 

Exemplifying the multifaceted creative persona of the Dior Homme man, the brand’s duality rises to the fore with a cinematic contrast created in diptych layouts featuring the season’s new faces: figures drawn from the worlds of fashion, music and film. American actor Lucas Hedges and Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan join French model Dylan Roques and breakout Belgian model Christophe ‘t Kint. Spanning generations and disciplines, they plot an evolution of style that subverts the classicism of Dior Homme with a contemporary twist.

In one scenario, the lines of HARDIOR tape created for the Winter 2017-2018 fashion show become a graphic backdrop, showcasing the season’s deconstructed and pinstriped tailoring worn with metallic hardware and rubber-soled trainers. A second series of images mixes elements of bygone bourgeoisie with raw youthful energy. The whole is accented by Sims’ signature interplay of shadow and light.

Exclusive Firsts

In the Dior boutique in Shanghai, in parallel with the event exhibition I Feel Blue, the house of Dior exclusively premiered three embroidered special editions of the Lady Dior bag set for a mid-summer worldwide release.

With I feel blue, The moon in my eyes and Astrology, these versions of the House’s iconic bag boast all-over figurative motifs worked in blue threads and gold. The charms have an angular and more modern look. The best embroidery ateliers in Paris exercised their expertise to make the designer’s poetic vision a reality.

 I Feel Blue in Shanghai

This past Saturday, in Shanghai, the House held I Feel Blue, a one-off event exhibition focused around the ready-to-wear autumn-winter 2017-2018 collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri for Dior. 

For the occasion, the West Bund Art & Design was decked out in blue, echoing the designer’s output in the color beloved of Christian Dior himself. Greeted by a video work projected on the building’s façade, guests were invited to take part in a genuine Dior experience, an immersive journey into the world of the House, between past and future, with blue as the common thread. Twelve outfits by Monsieur Dior from the archives show the appeal this color of the kings of France had for him, from the navy wool Passe-Partout suit from the first collection, that of the New Look in 1947, to 1957's Billet Doux, an afternoon dress in blue silk damask with rose motifs. A specially dedicated room contained an installation by the artist Liu Jianhua based around the Lady Dior bag. Next, the visitor discovered Maria Grazia Chiuri's collection unveiled as a hologram projection in which the models appeared in a poetic setting inspired by the collection's prints. Lastly, a long corridor entirely decorated with traditional lanterns reinterpreted by Dior in the color of the event led guests to the soirée.
