Dior Prestige La Cure, a new dimension of luxury

Dior_CurePrestige_00896.jpg

Christian Dior has given a new meaning to prestige this fall. The famous upscale brand has just introduced a highly concentrated regenerative treatment that, most probably, costs more than your monthly rent.

dior_cureprestige_00340

Dior Prestige La Cure, which retails at a vertiginous price of $1,550 USD, is one of the most expensive products the brand has ever put on the market. The treatment, consisting of three vials, each filled with a different juice, is designed to be used over the course of three weeks. During the first week, the serum ‘resets’ the complexion. Week two ‘renews’, week three ‘perfects’, and week four not a single drop is left in the bottle, and you are back to square one holding your wallet…

But, what accounts for such a high price? According to Dior, the new Prestige La Cure serum is formulated with 100% natural Rose de Granville oil, made from handpicked, full bloom rosebuds. The roses that bloom in Dior’s Loire Valley garden in France are picked within an hour of their full bloom, which is when their molecular potency is three times stronger. The roses are cold-pressed, which results in the ultimate and pure concentrate of fresh petals, an opulent source of eight different rejuvenating molecules. Since there’s no more than 800 rose bushes in Dior Garden, Dior is only able to produce a limited amount of the product at a time. This three-week regimen, therefore, has to be pricey, and is also available in a strictly limited edition.

As Dior describes it, this ‘miraculous skin care with unmatched powers’ comes with a promise of visibly renewed, soothed, more beautiful and youthful skin. The treatment targets over-stressed, fatigued, inflamed skin to allow the inflammatory reaction to recover its reconstructive role. During the first week, in which the skin is reset, the treatment cancels out all main signs of fatigue. During the second, renewal week, the serum penetrates deep into the skin to restore its firmness and resiliency. Finally, the transformative process occurs during the third and the last week of the treatment, revealing more refined, smoother, and softer skin.

  • Week 1: Reset. The main signs of fatigued skin are neutralized.
  • Week 2: Renew. La Cure penetrates the skin deep down for firmer and more resilient skin.
  • Week 3: Perfect. Cell by cell, the skin is transformed, from its heart to its surface. Its texture is refined and is softer and smoother

 

For three weeks, apply La Cure morning and night, instead of Le Nectar and La Crème, in the order indicated on the bottles. On the first morning of each week, a gel-mask is worn after the La Cure ritual to boost the treatment’s effectiveness.

As Dior recommends, on the first morning of each week, a gel-mask should be worn after the La Cure ritual to boost the treatment’s effectiveness.

Dior Prestige La Cure treatment is delivered in a gold-colored corffet that opens to reveal three 0.5oz glass amphorae. The treatment retails at $1,550

This fall, Dior updates its iconic Rouge Dior Lipstick collection. As of September 2016, the colorful lipstick range will be expanded with brand new hues and a trendy new texture.

Discover Natalie Portman like you’ve never seen her before: a bold woman playing with her image, funny and sensual. The new Rouge Dior is all about attitude!

Believe it or not, but Dior’s classic Rouge Dior Lipstick has been around for more than 60 years! This cult-favorite product made its debut back in 1953! As Monsignor Christian Dior stated on a number of occasions, the Rouge Dior lipstick is inspired by the timeless archetypes of beauty, silkiness and colors of Dior’s lush fabrics. In 2016, the entire range has been reformulated, expanded with new color families, and offered in new finishes. The face of the new lipstick campaign is Dior’s style ambassador Natalie Portman.

The most important addition to the range is Dior Rouge Dior Extreme Matte Lipstick – a brand new texture, based on an lip-caring formula that delivers no less than 16 hours of wear, without drying out the lips. The Extreme Matte Lipsticks are infused with mango butter and hydrating aroleat samphire, a wax obtained from a coastal plant Criste Marine. Despite being fully matte, Dior’s new lipsticks claim to be extremely comfortable to wear, which is thanks to the innovative formula infused with lip-plumping hyaluronic spheres.

Dior The Art of Color

In 1949, with the first ‘Rouge Dior’ lipsticks, the House on Avenue Montaigne saw its Beauty hisstory begin, indelibly linked to color. A striking silhouette and scarlet lips were the original, infallible weapons of the New Look and triumphant femininity.

Dior celebrates its passion for color in this book, inviting the major names behind the House Make-up to take inspiration from 12 key shades, illustrated in sumptuous photographs, and to compare them to great works of art.

Divided into twelve chapters (White, Silver, Nude, Pink, Red, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Gold, Gray, and Black) Dior: The Art of Color show- cases not only the sometimes glamorous, sometimes natural cosmetics, but also the aesthetics of color, which was the source of inspiration for so much of Dior’s creations.

Christian Dior’s Archi Dior Collection

Dior_Archi_Jewlery_700.gif

“I wanted to be an architect; but as a couturier I am obliged to follow the laws and principles of architecture”, explained Christian Dior in 1956, at a conference held at the Université de la Sorbonne in Paris. From his first show, he imbued his creations with their architectural elegance and also defined a style and a spirit.

In tribute to this unique creative vision, two years ago Victoire de Castellane designed the Archi Dior fine jewellery collection, then last year a collection in which each piece took the name of a couture line or an iconic dress, adapting a fabric’s special way of moving to the language of stones and precious metals.

06_slideshow_archidior.jpg04_slideshow_archidior

05_slideshow_archidiorThis year, the Archi Dior jewellery collection welcomes eight pieces inspired by the Cocotte houndstooth dress from the spring-summer 1948 collection with its volume swept to the back, as well as the Milieu du Siècle line from the autumn-winter 1949-1950 presentation based on the internal geometry of the fabrics. The silhouette of the Cocotte design gave rise to an asymmetric ring and necklace on white gold and diamonds. And the flow of the Milieu du Siècle line’s curves appear in a gold and diamond necklace, in two pairs of white gold and diamond earrings, as well as three rings in white gold and diamonds, and rose gold, with or without diamonds. “I selected the strongest and most interesting movements in order to adapt them in metal. It’s no longer a pleated dress, but the idea of a pleat,” the Creative Director of Dior Joaillerie explains.

Dior It Shades

Their unique and iconic color sets four essential shades apart in the Rouge Dior range. Lets have a closer look….

christiandior-visuel-rougedior-itshades

Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup, has reinterpreted four cult colors from Dior’s history. The House’s first crimson red is revisited in a matte version in 999 Matte. The soft coral red of 080 Red Smile references 080 Red, a fresh and bright lipstick created by Christian Dior in 1959. With its intense fuchsia, 047 Miss evokes the rose present in the Miss Dior fragrance, conceived by the couturier-perfumer in 1947. Lastly, natural and light 060 Première is an homage to the bois de rose created by Monsieur Dior who gave it the number 60.
