The special Louis XVI style, which Christian Dior chose to keep at home and seat his guests in for fashion shows, shines with a recognizable oval shape and Fontanges bow. Today, we see those undeniable design cues intact, yet each new design shines with modern materials, futuristic shapes, and hues that reflect the contemporary spirit of today’s ever-changing world.

As global conduits that communicate each artists’ cultural sensibilities —from Japan and Italy to Korea and Lebanon—the preconceived objects now expand upon global creativity and artistic imagination, reflecting the maison‘s timeless creations for today and the future.
