Featuring a new scenographic narrative, this reinvented retrospective curated by Olivier Gabet – Director of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs – celebrates more than seventy years of creative passion, punctuated by stunning discoveries, from the emblematic 30 Avenue Montaigne address to the sumptuousness of Versailles and enchantment of the founding couturier's beloved gardens. The exhibition features haute couture designs past and present, from Christian Dior – including the famous Bar suit that launched the New Look in 1947 – and the Creative Directors who succeeded him – Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri – as well as a selection of works and decorative objects from the collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs itself. Perpetuating the visionary spirit of Christian Dior, a number of icons will also be on display, including versions of the Lady Dior bag reinterpreted for the Dior Lady Art project, representing singular reflections of the House’s history.
