A perfume, dresses, shoes, and a bag: Miss Dior is a young women of many guises.
Mademoiselle Dior, before all else was Catherine: Christian's sister, twelve years his junior. He was her “Tian”, she was his “Chérie”. Miss Dior was she: the embodiment of a young woman. It was the name that the couturier gave to his first perfume, in 1947, and, that same year, to an haute couture dress: full, exaggerated volume, entirely embroidered with little silk flowers. Since this first collection, fifteen dresses have been named Miss Dior. It's a testament to the love of the couturier for his sister. In 2007, it was the name given to a curved-heel pump, with a vintage, 1950s feel.
And, since last July, Miss Dior has been a bag: in precious skins, smooth leather or wool tweed, double-button press-stud closure, “Cannage” quilting inspired by the woven caning of Napoleon III chairs and a chain strap. As it was with the dresses that bear the name, as with the shoes, and with the perfume, the Miss Dior bag belongs to a new generation. Its codes are very Dior, its style is totally Miss.
And it’s Mila Kunis who is it’s real-life incarnation.
