THE BALL SCENE

Young men dressed as knights, towers and other chess pieces greeted guests in front of a giant chessboard, an hypnotic vision all in black and white. A host of other strange creatures strolled about: contortionists with totally masked faces, dancers dressed as playing cards... A phantasmagorical setting containing fantastical beings who seemed like they’d escaped from a dream or a painting by Magritte. The Musée Rodin was transformed last night into the scene of a Surrealist ball, pulsing to the rhythms of a concert by Willow Smith and a DJ set by Disclosure.

CHRISTIAN DIOR SURREALIST BALL

Transformed into a fantastical setting, last night the gardens of the Musée Rodin celebrated two of Christian Dior's passions: the glamorous ball and surrealism. A soirée, hovering between illusions, dreams and reality, punctuated with surprise performances.

Scenography

Black and white, optical games and illusions: the décor of the haute couture spring-summer 2018 reflected the Surrealist inspirations of the collection designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri.

A giant checkerboard greeted guests arriving at the Musée Rodin. In a nod to the world of games, a central theme of Surrealism, the décor evoked a black and white photograph, caught between dreams and reality. Immense cages and sculptures in the shape of a hand, nose or female bust were suspended over Napoleon III chairs that recalled those chosen by Christian Dior for his own shows.
