The House of Christian Dior has long been a brand known for its sophisticated fashion and highly anticipated campaigns. The newest campaign of Lady Dior stars the timeless beauty, Marion Cotillard, styled in Raf Simons designs for Dior. Fashionista notes that if “these [images] were in black and white they could easily have been from the ‘50s”. However, they also hold the streamlined appeal of the early 90s and are perfectly suited for today.
For nearly 70 years, Christian Dior’s clothing, handbag and eyewear have been synonymous with innovative design with a classic appeal.
Founded in 1946 by the eponymous designer, Christian Dior, the label quickly made waves with its ‘New Look’ in 1947. Marion Cotillard’s new campaign for Lady Dior seems to pay homage to that revolutionary look with its nipped in waist and full skirt. Favored by both Hollywood and Royalty, Christian Dior’s success continued until the designer’s death in 1957, and the house continued to be one of the world’s most influential under the masterful eye of Yves Saint-Laurent. Fanaticism for the Christian Dior brand grew under the avant-garde design of John Galliano whose accessories became some of the most coveted worldwide.
Creative Director, Raf Simons, has been lauded for his designs at Christian Dior the past few seasons. With Marion Cotillard’s stunning looks and great talent, the house can now bring the focus back to its timeless creations after its recent tumultuous years.
