In 1995, The Lady Dior was born. On its creation, it was presented by the first lady of France as a gift to Lady Diana, Princess of Wales - the darling of the world's media, who had come to open the Cézanne exhibition in Paris. The princess took it everywhere with her. She ordered one in every version.
Its topstitched cannage pattern, golden rings connecting the rectangular body to the arching handles, and dangling gold letters-in tribute to Christian Dior’s love of lucky charms-have made it an iconic accessory for the last fifteen years. Made of leather or exotic skins, The Lady Dior’s supreme elegance and couture style puts it in a class of its own.
Mythical and modern, The Lady Dior has inspired the greatest artists the world over. Photographers, visual artists, video artists, and leading film directors have taken the story of the mysterious Lady Dior, embodied by Marion Cotillard, to the capital cities of the world.
And thus The Lady Dior takes its rightful place in the cultural heritage of Christian Dior. For before becoming a couturier, Dior was a passionate and knowledgeable gallery owner. In Paris, he was the first to show the work of Calder, Dalí, Miró and Giacometti, and also presented works by Picasso, Dufy, Ernst and Klee.
Gertrude Stein was one of his best clients. The young man who had dreamed of going to art school remained close to artists throughout his life. This fervent love of art is to be found at the heart of Dior's designs and those of his successors.
The very foundation of the House of Dior's core identity, this love of art today fuels a vibrant dialogue between the Dior icon that is The Lady Dior and the works of the most talented artists, from David Lynch, John Cameron Mitchell, Kum Chi Keung and Annie Wan Lai Kuen to Peter Lindbergh, Bovey Lee, Olympia Scarry and Martin Parr.
More than one hundred exceptional works of art pay tribute, each in their own unique way, to a Dior style icon.
