Celebrating Dior's boutique opening on London’s famous New Bond Street, Dior unveiled a limited-edition selection of iconic Lady Dior bags and small leather accessories reinvented by London-born artist Marc Quinn. A renowned figure in the world of contemporary art, the artist transposes his vivid, hyper-realist oil paintings to Dior creations. He has invented models with, on one side, a floral print drawn from his oeuvre and, on the other side, the same motif with the colours reversed.
With this unique collaboration, the House writes a new page in the story of the profound and sincere ties it has always enjoyed with the world of art. The motifs depict flowers eternally frozen at the point of full bloom, belying a sinister subtext the relentless desire of man to control nature.
