I love it when fashion and art collides. Take a glimpse at the So Dior exhibition at Harrods, showcasing artists reinterpreting some of Dior’s most famous codes. The artist Sinan Sigic d’Atelier Hapax has taken the signature white boxes labeled “Dior” and built a bright wall with them, punctuated with house symbols cut into the cardboard (the Bar silhouette, the star, the Lady Dior, Miss Dior, and so on).
Christian Dior himself was friends with some of the biggest artists of his time. Today, the love story between Dior and the art world continues apace, and the house has given carte blanche to various artists to rework, reinterpret and play with its history.
Stopping off at Harrods, the Lady Dior as seen by traveling exhibition is showcasing new interpretations of the Lady Dior : realized in colored copper wires by Alice Anderson and in ceramic by Bevis & Youle.
The artist Oyoram – who creates the videos shown in the Dior stores – has produced an exclusive video inspired by the Miss Dior dress designed by Christian Dior in 1949. Projected on the walls of a room inhabited by Raf Simons’ own reinterpretation of the Miss Diordress, this spellbinding and poetic film tells the story of the house, its connection to gardens, and its passion for flowers.
Wish I can see this Dior mini exhibit in person!
