Guided Tour

In the heart of the Champs-Elysées, the new Dior boutique stands like a majestic showcase and a spellbinding twin, a surprising evocation of the hôtel particulier at 30 Avenue Montaigne.

An homage to Christian Dior’s hôtel particulier, closed while undergoing a metamorphosis, a captivating trompe-l’œil, entirely made by hand, conjures, as if by magic, the façade of 30 Avenue Montaigne on the world’s most beautiful avenue. On display in this kingdom of dreams are the latest collections from across Dior’s universes, showcased in an unprecedented scenography crowned by a spectacular luminous dome, with a curved, ribbon-like staircase, a poetic fresco of white toiles celebrating the savoir-faire of the House’s Ateliers, works and sculptures reinterpreting the iconic Lady Dior bag and exclusive furniture by contemporary artists. A new chapter opens in Dior’s love affair with Paris, a marriage of audacity and architectural virtuosity.

The stuff of dreams

To celebrate 20 years of Dior Joaillerie, Victoire de Castellane has created Gem Dior, the House’s largest ever High Jewelry collection, conceived like a chromatic fairytale of stones and colors. These precious architectural jewels were shown on models dressed in exclusive gowns created by Maria Grazia Chiuri during a magical dinner held at the Palazzo Labia in Venice on June 11th. This celebration honoring a love of art and harmony was further enhanced by the beauty of painter Giambattista Tiepolo’s frescoes, the immutable décor of this marvelous setting.

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.
