The House of Dior is another of those venerable fashion icons that have stood the test of time. Today, Galliano dazzles as the head designer with his theatrics on the runways, and at the same time churns out the collections in pret-a-porter, accessories and eyewear that bring in the profits for LVMH, Dior’s corporate overlord.
Dior Homme, the men’s wear collection revamped under Hedi Slimane, is immensely successful among male fashionistas. Unfortunately Slimane and Dior have now parted ways and it remains to be seen if KrisVan Assche can keep the flame burning bright.
The captivating Victoire de Castellane has been designing “haute joaillerie” for Dior since the launch of the jewellry line in 1998. Her bold and glamourous creations have blown away the cobwebs of conservatism in fine jewellry. She artfully reinterprets Dior’s couture in the vocabulary of jewels and royal metals.
