Dior Gold Capsule Collection Relaunches the Maison’s Most Iconic Pieces
Gold has always been a symbol of the House’s timeless audacity and creativity. An Ariadne’s thread that began its weave during the founding-couturier’s childhood and emerged in his 1947 autumn-winter collection with the delicately embroidered dress Golconde in gold lamé. As a tribute to this unique and precious Dior fundamental, Maria Grazia Chiuri reinterprets, season after season, the Dior Gold capsule, composed of iconic models enhanced with dazzling touches.
Today, these luminous tones are featured on long dresses and midi skirts in poetic tulle and lace or made in cotton lurex jacquard with a magnificent hang, as well as on airy and cosy knits. Unprecedented pieces are also unveiled, such as a boxy jacket in blistered fabric, adorned with buttons brandishing the “CD” signature, promising a refined and contemporary allure. The Lady Dior and Dior Caro bags glow in iridescent leather, available in three luminous variations – gold, gold pink and silver – punctuated with tone-on-tone details, while the Lady D-Joy is revealed in a version embellished with the graphic lines of the metallic Diamond Cannage. In turn, shoes – from the 30 Montaigne and D-Way mules to the Walk’n’Dior sneakers – are magnified with enchanting golden hues.
A dreamlike universe, exalting the House’s inventiveness and the savoir-faire of its Ateliers.
