Dior’s new Home Decor Collection

The very first Christian Dior home collection launched this week at the house’s new and grand four-story shop in London. Peter Marino designed the Home space in the new Dior shop to resemble a conservatory, with greenery along the white trellis and a diamond-shaped skylight that runs the entire length of the entrance.

For the launch, the brand tapped 11 designers to create a range of pieces that includes handblown glass carafes, ceramic plates, decks of Dior-printed playing cards, notebooks, crystal glassware, and hand-embroidered linens. The designers include India Mahdavi; Lucie de la Falaise; Michaël Cailloux; and the store’s designer, Peter Marino. For each season, there will be a rotating group of artists and designers creating unique pieces under this new in-house label.

The aesthetic of each Dior Home item pays homage to the founder himself—his love of flowers, his progressive and feminine dress silhouettes, and his unmistakable, signature gray and pastel pink. source : Vogue

Haute Couture Facade for Dior, Miami

Paris-based Barbarito Bancel Architects was commissioned to add a façade to a Dior boutique located in Miami, whose interiors were designed by Peter Marino. The principal stake of the project was to create a skin for the building that would reflect Dior’s image and identity, finding values where haute couture and architecture could meet and blend.

Christian DIOR’s Spring-Summer 2014 runway show set in the Musée Rodin gardens. The facade of the pavillion showcase is a beautiful golden mirror that reflects the handsome building of the Museum. Past the entrance, one enters an immaculate white interior. Subtly sculpted curves have been hand made by artisans, who have dug each sensual contour into slender columns, seats, a runway and walls. Natural light from the ceiling enchances the organic shapes. Absolutely spectacular.
