For the Maison Dior collection, cematis, peonies, dahlias and swallows are encased in carafes and decorative spheres or processed in porcelain plates and hand-painted placemats in natural linen. Three candlesticks in matching shades complete the line that combines heritage and modernity. Like every collection, this one is also the result of a collaboration with another designer, architect or artist. This time the honor went to Cordelia de Castellane. Names like Jeremy Maxwell, Jérôme Faillant-Dumas, Lucie de la Falaise, Michael Cailloux and Giberto Arrivabene already preceded her.

"Without ado, without even consulting the architect, I gave my consent and devoted everything I had to furnishing my new home," Christian Dior described his love for his apartment at 7 Boulevard Jules Sandeau in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. Fascinated by this passion for the art of living, Cordelia de Castellane was inspired by this unique address - and in particular by the wallpaper decorated with flowers and birds - to decorate her latest collection for Maison Dior.

The line values the combination of heritage and modernity to reflect the lifestyle that Monsieur Dior cultivated: "Living in a house that doesn't look like yourself," as the couturier claimed, "is a bit like wearing clothes from another person."
