Inspired by Christian Dior's gardens, the scarves from the resort 2014 collection are veritable floral paintings. Graphic and delicate, modern and refined, they blossom around a woman's neck in a bouquet of brilliant color.
"After women, flowers are the most divine of creations," Christian Dior opined. All throughout his life, the couturier exercised his talents to heighten both beauties, spending long hours tending to his garden, and dressing women in floral prints whose colors recalled his beloved roses. The three silk scarf styles in the resort 2014 collection reinterpret the couturier's passion for flowers in a contemporary way. With its colorful insects providing bright spots amongst the hydrangeas, the Les Jardins de Monsieur Dior collection is an homage to the glories of nature in Granville where the the couturier grew up; Les Roses de Monsieur Dior revisits his favorite flower in watercolor tones; and Les Broderies de Monsieur Dior alludes to the futuristic accents in the floral embroideries of Raf Simons' dresses.
Combining delicacy with brightness, the finely-detailed flowers bloom into compositions pulsing with color.. For all the world like silk petals, these scarves express a style that's both contemporary and refined.
