Versailles holds on to its secrets very well. At its heart is to be found a mysterious world, peopled with flower-women that only artists Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin could capture. For the second installment of "Secret Garden", they pick up the historical thread that ties Versailles to Dior. Discover their film here.
They had left her in the pathways of the traditional French parkland. And it's deep within the forests of the royal demesne, among the centuries-old trees of Versailles, that the artists Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin found the model Daria Strokous once again. A modern Marie-Antoinette, a stately lady in Dior, she moves toward a world of elegance and refinement, crossing the marble hallways of the Grand Trianon and the shaded groves of the vast parkland.
Ethereal, radiant, royal, in pursuit of her ideal: a realm of poetry and color, worthy of the painting "Le Déjeuner sur l’Herbe" by Edouard Manet. Before the camera lens of Inez and Vinoodh, Versailles hums with well-kept secrets. Secrets whispered by flower-women, by women in Dior.
