“Whatever you do – whether for work or pleasure – do it with passion! Live with passion,” wrote Christian Dior. Well before he embarked on his destiny as a couturier, Christian Dior was fascinated with art. The young Normandy native and several friends opened an art gallery when he was just 23. In 1938 he learned the métier of pattern cutter with Robert Piguet and three years later began working as a designer for Lucien Lelong. Right from the founding of his Maison in 1946, he transformed his dreams into irresistible creations, seeking to break with the somber war years by elevating pure joy. His visionary spirit celebrated and enchanted women the world over. In only ten years, Monsieur Dior revolutionized the conventions of elegance and femininity, designing collections infused with dreams.
IconBoldly proclaiming the New Look, the Bar jacket was unveiled at Christian Dior’s very first fashion show on February 12, 1947, affirming a timeless essence and an enduring beauty that is continually revisited. Like a work of architecture, the Bar jacket has been reinvented season after season, transcending trends and periods, an eternal icon of the House.
30, AVENUE MONTAIGNE
“It had to be 30, avenue Montaigne. I will set up shop here and nowhere else!” Christian Dior seemed predestined to fall for this now legendary townhouse, which became the heart of Dior, synonymous with Parisian elegance, a kingdom of dreams where continually reinvented icons were first born.
