“The idea of the black carpet was to convey the energy and rebel attitude of the runway collection on a capsule collection of eveningwear while playing with the embellishment codes and the know-how of Dior. Reworking the evening suit by pushing it in more extreme interpretations.” Kris Van Assche
The season’s spring 2018 black carpet collection pushes into new formal territory: the tail coat and cummerbund are included amongst embellished jacket styles featuring a confetti of appliqué leather sequins, clustered bugle beads, and bee embroideries across the breast and collar.
The lily of the valley flower, a favourite of Monsieur Dior, returns in a subtle matte black brooch or all-over decoration.
