Miss Dior at the Grand Palais | A Celebration of Christian Dior’s Legacy and the Famous First Perfume

I am, like many of you, a fan of Christian Dior. The haute couture brand has mastered the feminine silhouette, designing clothes that are an equal mix of elegance and modernity. Last November in the Courbe Gallery at the Grand Palais in Paris, LVMH put on an exhibition in honor of Christian Dior and his first perfume, Miss Dior. The scent has become a symbol of femininity since its creation in 1947, much like Chanel No. 5. As a tribute to the fashion house’s affiliation with the arts, Dior commissioned 15  female artists from around the world to create artwork inspired by the perfume. Using the trademark bow, classic flacon, and hounds-tooth pattern, the artists fabricated a variety of imaginative pieces, which you can see below.

Have a wonderful weekend!
