A veritable ode to Venice, its traditions and unwavering links with art history and French culture, the “Tiepolo Ball”  for one night celebrated the magic of this city of dreams. Specially for the event, Maria Grazia Chiuri dreamed up a bustier gown for actress Monica Bellucci in a silk velvet chiseled with floral motifs, an exclusive fabric designed by Dior and poetically baptized "Millefiori".

The fruits of the haute couture savoir-faire of the Dior Ateliers, the creation revisits the codes of the House through the extraordinary craft tradition of Venetian weaving. Cue the bustier, adorned with a soprarizzo weave. Known for its finesse and rich and precious nuances, the chiseled silk velvet is handwoven in the ancestral Bevilacqua mill in Venice. The unique velvet piece bears the inscription "Christian Dior" at the back. Enhanced by a pleated skirt in a triple layer of tulle in dégradé hues, the bustier flashes out from beneath an elegant pleated cape in taffeta silk.

Reconnecting with the House’s unique heritage, its passion for art and lavish balls, Dior on May 11th celebrated, together with the Venetian Heritage foundation – for its 20th anniversary - the “Tiepolo Ball” in the heart of the legendary Palazzo Labia. Cordelia de Castellane, Artistic Director of Dior Maison, designed a series of one-of-a-kind plates for the dinner depicting the themes of each table. Providing the tablecloths, meanwhile, was the famed house of Fortuny, which perpetuates the tradition of the fabulous artist, tireless researcher and artisan-inventor Mariano Fortuny. The noble cloths – still produced in the mill’s historic factory founded a century ago on the Venetian island of Giudecca – were based on the unparalleled archive collections, old and new, of this Venetian institution.

Baptized 30 Montaigne, the new bag designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri symbolically carries the same name as her timeless new collection, which the Artistic Director created to celebrate the Dior universe and its icons. Already a must-have, the bag is distinctive for its natural elegance imbued with the stylistic essence of the 1960s.

To witness firsthand the exacting production standards that go into this black leather model requires traveling to Florence, Italy, and gaining access to the heart of the Dior leather goods workshops there. Chosen for its noble properties, box calf leather radiates its unique natural qualities. Its architectural aspect contrasts with the softness of the lambskin used for its lining. These exceptional skins, cut with the aid of patterns, are assembled piece by piece. The craftspeople meticulously execute each step, from the stitching of the structure down to details like the hot-stamped Christian Dior label.

A manifesto for its time, this entirely handmade accessory is fitted with an inside pocket for smartphones and an oversize clasp, marked with the initials “CD”, which opens with a simple gesture. Its shoulder strap, meanwhile, expertly fitted through gold-finish loops, offers a sophisticated look when hand-carried, naturally borrowing the curves of a wave, or completes the silhouette when worn cross-body.

This unique creative ritual, combining beauty and technical virtuosity, continues with the embossed inscription of the words 30 Montaigne on the back of the bag. With their rounded forms, each letter is etched in leather, sculpted one by one courtesy thanks to the artisan’s agile hand. Like an homage, this signature, subtly highlighted in tone-on-tone relief, features the House’s iconic address, the cradle of Christian Dior’s success since 1947. An eternal seal to hold close, a symbol of the Dior dream.
