THE LADY DIOR SEEN BY OLGA DE AMARAL

Based in Bogotá, Colombia, Olga de Amaral creates works at the crossroads of painting and textiles, sculpture and crafts, that are reflections of her own history and that of her country. To reinterpret the iconic Lady Dior bag, this major figure of South American abstract art chose her favorite material, gold. Embroidered cotton and linen scarves were delicately covered with 24-carat gold leaf, all applied by hand on the two medium-sized Lady Dior. An embroidery of bugle beads punctuates the calfskin mini versions (silver for one, gold for the other), while the bags’ ornaments and charms have all been hand-worked and hammered. Lastly, as a tribute to Christian Dior and his love of nature, the lining is silkscreened with the drawing of a golden rose that bloomed in the artist’s imagination.

DIOR LADY ART #3

For the third edition of the Dior Lady Art project, the House has invited artists from around the world, and, for the first time, only women, to reinterpret the iconic Lady Dior bag.

Its architectural lines punctuated with charms in tribute to the precious talismans Christian Dior was never without, its cannage evoking the Napoléon-III chairs on which the couturier sat the guests attending his shows, the Lady Dior bag carries within it the quintessence of the House’s spirit, its codes and its haute couture savoir-faire. Propelled in 1995 to the rank of timeless legend, by lending itself to the boldest expressions and innovations, its story has been written far from the vagaries of short-lived trends.

For this third edition of Dior Lady Art, the House gave eleven artists total carte blanche to reinterpret the iconic bag in its medium and mini versions. For the first time, and following the wishes of Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri, only women have been selected to take part. Of different generations and nationalities – Colombia, Turkey, South Korea, China, the United States, France and Japan – they have pushed the limits of excellence even further. Every detail of this unquestionable icon of the Dior soul, from fabric and materials to colors and embellishment, has been redesigned according to each artist’s desires, aesthetics and imagination.
