Baby Dior Spring/Summer 2016 Collection Draws Inspiration from Palace of Versailles

10 April 2016

By Vanessa Lee

Baby Dior's Spring/Summer collection transports us to a place of luxury and refinement that was particularly close to Christian Dior’s heart, and today still remains closely connected to the House: the Palace of Versailles.

For the Spring pieces, the flowerbeds of the Versailles gardens designed by Le Nôtre form the inspiration for a graphic wardrobe.

On a peplum top, an optical print evokes the mass plantings, while other pieces with laser cuts-outs have fresh new volumes.

The Hall of Mirrors are reinterpreted by materials with precious shimmers.

A dress of metallic techno jacquard or lurex arabesques for her; a cardigan structured with a silvered band and a mirror-print shirt for him.

The elegance of 18th-century women's fashion is reinvented, transposed into dresses, jackets and modern floral tops, with raspberry silk alongside technical fabrics, and printed or embroidered dresses worn under a plastic coat.

For the Summer pieces, the Baby Dior wardrobe explores an intimate Versailles – that of Marie-Antoinette and the Petit Trianon, her private domain.

The romantic and bucolic world of the young queen comes through in brightly-colored chiffon dresses, while the prints on other pieces reference the decorative motifs of Japanese flowers that adorned her apartments.
