Dior Spring 2012- “Garden Party” Collection
This Dior collection for spring is inspired by Dior’s garden. Christian Dior owns a beautiful garden in Les Rhumbs, Northern France- A garden which inspired him to produce the many different perfume scents.
A vistor described the garden “At the end of the garden, perched on the clifftop, is a rose garden, breathtaking in its position and diversity, much the same as it was in Dior’s day. You reach it along a path covered by a second pale-grey arched pergola, another of Dior’s designs, which creaks under a mass of climbing roses including New Dawn, the peach-pink Shropshire Lad and deeper pink Gertrude Jekyll and Anne Boleyn. The garden has more than 20 different roses: Alberic Barbier clusters together with the hybrid musk Penelope, Pink Cloud, white Iceberg, a Mme Paule Massad shrub, Mme Alfred Carrière and Pierre de Ronsard. The blooms are everywhere you look, and they are thriving despite their precarious position.”
Dior’s garden has influenced him throughout his career, leading him to produce a collection that represents his garden.
The collection will launch January 2012 (USA).
