Silk Scarves & Mitzah
A mark of elegance expressed by the founder of the House, Dior's hats and gloves highlight an exceptional savoir-faire and a timeless allure.
For Mr. Dior, accessories were the final touch that always brought the right element of personality to any ensemble. This still holds especially true for the House's designer silk scarves for women, quintessential pieces in every wardrobe. Inspired all his life by a passion for color, the couturier did not hesitate to revolutionize the classic square scarf by giving it an elongated shape with pointed finishes to put his intricate patterns on display. This style was donned the Mitzah, paying homage to the muse and confidant of Mr. Dior, Mitzah Bricard. The House continues this heritage thanks to the creative genius of the Creative Director of women's collections, Maria Grazia Chiuri. Bringing versatility to the modern woman's life, an aspiration of Christian Dior that continues today, Dior silk scarves for women can be styled in a myriad of ways. They may be worn like bracelets wrapped around the wrist, as belts tied around the waist, as headbands or even accents attached to the handles of the House's signature handbag collections. They particularly complement the elegance of a Lady Dior bag or elevate the casualness of the Dior Book tote. Each styling option presents new vehicles for today's woman to showcase her individuality. With each collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri revisits emblematic patterns and embroidery, such as Dior Oblique or Toile de Jouy, and imagines new prints that are as unique as they are timeless. Season after season, vibrant and expressive colors and palettes are introduced. The Dior Oblique pattern has been a House signature since it was first introduced on the runway in 1967, whereas the classic Toile de Jouy motif is an ode to Christian Dior's personal love of flowers and nature. The products of ancestral and an almost ceremonial savoir-faire, these refined accessories are made from exceptional silk, cotton, tulle, or twill and feature hand-rolled or frayed finishes. The Mitzah and luxury silk square scarves for women bear the House's signature subtly worked into the design or highlighted on a jacquard tag.
