After working for fashion designer Robert Piguet and couturier Lucien Lelong, respectively, Dior founded his own fashion house in Paris in 1947. His first boutique, which was located at 30 Avenue Montaigne, had a section dedicated to the home. In honor of this genre, The House of Dior is the only store to carry the swank Dior Maison collection and its limited-edition wares.
The the luxurious atmosphere of haute couture, hidden inside the Dior boutique in London is the perfect scene for exclusive Dior Home collection. The Dior boutique on New Bond Street is the dream of any fashion-forward shopaholic; here specially commissioned art, including sculptures by Tony Cragg and Rado Kirov create the lavish ambiance together with a collection of handbags featuring works of artist Mark Quinn while three private VIP shopping areas, a demi-measure floor for Dior Homme, a dedicated shoe gallery offer the very best collections for an elegant, modern and urban look. On top of that all, there is a space devoted to the Dior Home collection, a highly personal and direct way of sharing Christian Dior’s taste in art de vivre.
The Dior Home collection demonstrates the same level of refinement with which Christian Dior decorated his residences in Paris, Milly-la-Forêt, and La Colle Noire in Provence. The exclusive collection features a selection of teas inspired by the House’s iconic fragrances, a collection of crystal glassware embellished with a gold couture stitch, and hand-embroidered home linens.
Artists and designers will regularly create limited-edition pieces. Specifically for the first Dior Home collection, the French fashion house has collaborated with the architect Peter Marino, who designed the Home space in the new Dior boutique to resemble a conservatory, with greenery along the white trellis and a diamond-shaped skylight that runs the entire length of the entrance, scenographer and designer Hubert Le Gall, the glass master Jeremy Maxwell, and home linens specialist Véronique Taittinger.
Currently on sale at the label’s London House of Dior Boutique, the latest Dior Home collection will fit right in at any fashionista’s stylish home. See for yourself…
