Iconic Christian Dior Boutique 30 Montaigne-Reopend

Emerging from the shadow of a two-and-a-half year renovation, the iconic 30 Montaigne boutique reopened this past Sunday to reveal a ravishing new identity. It not only unites the multitude of collections together in a vastly enlarged and art-filled boutique that also contains a restaurant, café and three gardens, but also represents a revitalized expression of the Maison’s heritage and savoir-faire.

This latter is highlighted by the return of the haute couture ateliers along with the new arrival of the haute joaillerie ateliers. Totaling 2000m2, La Galerie Dior is an unparalleled addition, a permanent exhibition space filled with thousands of pieces, including some 166 couture creations in 13 thematic spaces, and a recreation of Monsieur Dior’s office.

Boutique

On the ground floor, women’s creations designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri – including ready-to-wear, accessories, shoes, bags and small leather goods – are displayed alongside men’s pieces designed by Kim Jones.

On the 1st floor, exceptional pieces in exotic leathers and evening wear designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri can be found nearby the Fine Jewelry collections, Dior Maison and men’s Demi Mesure.

La Gallerie Dior

Featuring a unique scenographic narrative, La Galerie Dior is a testament to the visionary audacity of Christian Dior and his six successors: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri.

Restaurant & La Pâtisserie Dior

As an ultimate treat, La Pâtisserie Dior – overlooking the sumptuous rose garden – provides any visit to 30 Montaigne with a requisite interlude over a sweet creation. Subtly reinterpreted by Jean Imbert, the most emblematic French cakes frequent original creations that reinvent Dior symbols in edible form.

A barista – selecting rare coffees for you – will be present to prolong these delicious moments, from the beauty of the gesture to the art of savoring. From breakfast to teatime, surrender to delicious pleasure and culinary excellence in an unparalleled setting.

The Restaurant, affectionately named Monsieur Dior, embodies the French art of living, driven by Jean Imbert’s creativity, both refined and generous, combining simplicity with elegance. The French chef, accompanied by his faithful collaborator Antony Clémot, drew from the heritage and history of the Maison to develop each menu. The cuisine is enhanced by exclusive Dior Maison collections dedicated to the arts of the table, enhancing classic dishes from the founding couturier’s favorite recipes.

An impressive Claudia Wieser mirror composed of geometric panels dialogues with Guy Limone’s pictorial work – especially created for 30 Montaigne – the result of a colossal research project: an original installation made from thousands of images – in a palette of red, black and white hues – drawn from Dior’s archives and the artist’s personal visual treasure trove. As a delicate hommage, an oil on canvas entitled Christian Dior à Table, by René Bouché is also featured in Le Restaurant.

Haute Couture Salons

The haute couture salons, precious testimonies of Dior’s history, have seen the collections of Christian Dior and premiered, right up to Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior fall-winter 2019-2020 haute couture line. Confidential, located near the ateliers and visible from the boutique through a large bay window, they are now regaining their former prestige, guarding the secrets of haute couture.

Haute couture represents a treasure trove of conscientious craftsmanship, a triumph of the sleight of hand, culminating in a kind of masterpiece.

Enhanced by wooden moldings and a parquet floor featuring a compass rose (a Dior classic) designed by architect Peter Marino, this timeless, refined setting hosts a selection of furniture and works of art, such as an abstract floral sculpture commissioned especially from Johan Creten or tables designed by Ado Chale or Claude Lalanne.

The Garden

“Thankfully, there are flowers”, said Monsieur Dior, who was – as well as a gallerist, an architecture aficionado, and grand couturier – an avid gardener. It was in Granville, in the rose garden of his family’s home overlooking the sea, that young Christian planted the seeds of his fascination with this most artful intersection of nature and culture. Growing into a fashion designer, Monsieur Dior found a bounty of inspiration in the gardens, allowing the dazzling silhouette of a femme-fleur to blossom from the very first collection, leaving her bewitching sillage in her wake.

On the ground floor, majestic tropical trees reach up to the windows of Le Restaurant Monsieur Dior, while perennial flowers bloom in abundance. One floor above, beneath a glass roof, there is a winter garden, where exotic plants seem to transcend borders. As for the terrace, it is adorned with a striking steel sculpture by John Chamberlain. On the third level, a veritable garden in the heart of the capital boasts apple trees and roses, Christian Dior’s favorite flowers, adding irresistible touches of elation.

The different spaces of 30 Montaigne:
– Monsieur Dior restaurant at 30 Avenue Montaigne
– La Galerie at 11 Rue Francois 1er
– Children’s fashion at 26 Avenue Montaigne

The boutique offers valet parking service. Come into the beautiful world of Christian Dior.

Panerai Releases Commemorative Luminor Geneva Boutique Special Edition

Panerai is the product of distinct traditions rooted in two countries: the sophistication of Swiss watchmaking artistry and an illustrious history of design inheritance from Italy. Situated at 21 Rue du Rhône in Geneva, in one of the most prestigious streets in the world, Panerai proudly unveils its unprecedented flagship store: two whole floors characterized by innovative modularity and Italian design blend physical and digital features to deliver a unique sensorial experience. To mark the opening of its new boutique, Panerai commemorates a waterproof timepiece ingenuity in the watchmaking sphere.

Upon entering the boutique, Panerai’s iconic luminous green wall clock may be the first element to grab customers’ attention, but one of the most striking novelties is the presence of a large videowall on which product can be impressively projected and magnified.

To reinforce this principle of experiential interaction, underneath the staircase leading to the second floor is a corner dedicated to the Laboratorio di Idee, a wall with portholes that “allows customers to touch and see Panerai’s philosophy of creating and developing new materials and movements in a transformative and sustainable way” states Creative Director Alvaro Maggini.

This core vision comprised of sustainable building and transformation is echoed in the modular lounge on the second floor. A stunning room with Italian furniture and iconic design pieces adorn the bright space, complemented by Italian literature and design books and, of course, some of the most prestigious high complication and special edition Panerai references.

The lounge can undergo a rapid transformation and become an elegant dining room in occasion of press and client events. When not in the lounge, clients are invited to visit the next-door bar area.

The bar in Art Deco style comprises one of the main elements in this area, a dual space that functions both as a café and drinks bar as well as an interactive rotating shelf through which customers can play and discover their favorite strap and case combination. A moveable platform follows the curve of the bar and allows customers to enjoy an Italian coffee or signature aperitivo during the experience.

The bottom of the bar structure is composed of ten containers holding ten different coffee beans from around the world, turning a core component of Italian culture and habit into an impressive piece of art.

An original Vespa from 1956 and a beautiful library housing glassless product displays and Italian vintage elements complete the setting. A modular stand-alone display shelf area can be used to highlight the novelties of the moment or major partnerships: when needed however, these shelves can be folded down onto themselves to create further walking space.

The peak of the floor’s animation however is in the shape of a curious periscope, behind which customers can see relevant Panerai stories unfold. This new creative concept, ‘Modularità Espressiva’, will be soon adopted in Panerai boutiques all over the world, redesigning the brands’ relationship with its customers.

To commemorate the boutiques’s grand opening, Panerai has unveiled the Luminor Geneva Boutique Special Edition.

The LGBSE is limited to 121 units during production and features a matte black 44mm case designed of titanium. The first-ever gradient dial will accompany the P.5000 internal movement, accented by Arabic numerals illuminated in neon green. In line with previous Panerai models, the manually wound caliber delivers an eight-day power reserve and inertia balance courtesy of Glucydur.

Engraved on the case back is an elegant mural of Geneva’s landmark Jet d’Eau fountain, accompanied by two interchangeable straps: a recycle-based PET strap and a green rubber strap. The waterproof timepiece commemorates the Italian watchmakers ingenuity in the watchmaking sphere, marking the opening of its experiential concept store in Geneva.

The timepiece is exclusive to the Panerai Geneva Boutique and retails for $9,700 EUR (approximately $10,815 USD). Come into the beautiful world of Panerai.

Chloé unveils its ephemeral boutique design in Soho

Iconic French maison Chloé unveils its ephemeral boutique design at its New York Home on Greene Street in SoHo.

The Chloé SoHo boutique’s ephemeral design centers on 17 sculptural art pieces that have been designed and crafted locally by New York-based makers Antoine Dumas and Benji Gavron. Materials act as a starting point for the pair, echoing Chloé creative director Gabriela Hearst’s approach to design, which often starts with researching lower impact fabrics such as deadstock wool or recycled cashmere. Dumas and Gavron have similarly used reclaimed wood to inform their ideas for this boutique.

Working with Antoine and Benji on the Chloé SoHo store was both inspiring and energizing. They worked with our values of sustainability and took them to the next level. They not only sourced and gathered reclaimed wood from New York water tanks and designed the pieces, but also made them from scratch themselves. Working with reclaimed wood can be challenging as they have to clean up old metal nails and handle other constraints. But they did it so brilliantly. I am so honored that they committed such long hours to the project and brought their exquisite taste, which is full of youthful New York energy. I couldn’t be prouder of the boys.
