For the founding couturier, the bow was the punctuation mark of joyful femininity. It has bloomed, mischievously or majestically , to wrap the neck of the Miss Dior bottle since its creation in 1947. First conceived in black grosgrain then powdered satin, the bow, tied on one side and flaring open on the other, is recognizable among a thousand. Having become an icon, omnipresent throughout the House’s universe, the ribbon gracefully lends itself to a new exceptional edition.
This version, inspired by the Essence d'Herbier haute couture dress, designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri with an echo of the Miss Dior dress created by Christian Dior for his spring-summer 1948 collection, evokes an armful of meadow flowers. Worn by Natalie Portman in the latest images of the Miss Dior campaign, it references Christian Dior's passion for gardens and the floral bouquet that composes the perfume. Thus, the double satin bow was embellished with an embroidery of raffia which has been previously dyed and then dried. Each strand was then divided into four to craft a base of loops of these fragile raffia threads that was then meticulously covered by needle with blue, yellow, pink, and acid green glass beads. This undertaking is carried out by expert hands that produce a precious and strikingly modern bow. In tribute to the dress, from dress to bottle, Miss Dior is the House’s eternal perfume.
