Extreme Correction 

Inspired by this new generation of young women looking for a perfect complexion, Peter Philips has developed Diorskin Forever Undercover: a fluid foundation capable of single-handedly totally camouflaging and unifying, in a light and natural way.

The new Diorskin Forever Undercover is an innovative feat, as explained by the Creative and Image Director of Dior makeup: "Integrated in a very fluid texture, the high concentration of pigments ensures a perfect correction of imperfections. What is very new for such coverage is that the product can neither be felt nor seen. The finish is fresh and matt enough to avoid the need for powder.” There’s no mask effect, because the twenty-six shades of Diorskin Forever Undercover are formulated with a water base, to meld impeccably with the skin. Finally, there’s no need for a complicated routine or multiple layers of product: a few seconds of application suffice for a result that lasts twenty-four hours, thanks to a formula enriched with two polymers that contribute to the foundation’s resistance to heat and moisture. To refresh the look even more, add a touch of Diorskin Forever Perfect Cushion, which is being reinvented this year in a very couture limited edition encased in cannage motif leather, available exclusively in Asia.

Diorskin Forever Undercover

In an era of selfies in which the skin appears ultra-corrected, the House reinvents this trend for extreme perfection with the new Diorskin Forever Undercover. A fluid foundation offering both a high twenty-four hour* coverage and a second-skin finish, it has been created by Peter Philips and embodied here by the actress and muse Natalie Portman.

Facing the camera with an easy attitude and a complexion under control, dressed in Maria Grazia Chiuri's creations for the House, confident in her power of seduction through to the end of the night, in this campaign Natalie Portman embodies the new-generation perfection of Diorskin Forever Undercover.

Head to Printemps Haussmann until March 15 to discover the denim creations for the spring 2018 season. For this collection, Kris Van Assche revisited work clothes, from raw indigo to black, within the coded framework of the Dior suit: a white shirt is layered with a sleeveless jacket, a silk tie elevates a denim outfit. The "Dior" signature appears in silver-embossed black leather and embroidered roses as patches on the shoulders of jackets. The ubiquitous color blue also lends the décor a sleek spareness.

For the occasion, Kris Van Assche has also designed exclusive pieces featuring the initials of the cities boasting the seven Dior Denim pop-up stores: London, New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo and, of course, Paris.

SAVOIR-FAIRE: THE L’IMPÉRATRICE AND CHANT À LA LUNE DRESSES

SAVOIR-FAIRE: THE NUDE DRESS

“Embroidery is still executed by hand, as it was in the 18th century, sometimes even on the same frames,” Christian Dior noted in 1956 in his memoirs. As an indispensable acolyte of couture, it’s embroidery we have to thank for the realization of this Nude dress whose sequins render a nude woman in trompe-l’œil. It was entirely made in the Vermont ateliers acquired by the House in 2013.
