BEST FOOT F O RWA R D

“Give a girl the right shoes and she will con­quer the world.” The essence of this quote is un­de­ni­able, and Dior gets it. BAZAAR lists five rea­sons why the mai­son’s lat­est Dioressence shoes are the new cult footwear to own.

A CLAS­SIC, REINVENTED

Based on the mai­son’s Spring/Sum­mer ’59 col­lec­tion, the stilet­tos are a con­tem­po­rary rein­ter­pre­ta­tion of time­less el­e­gance that is sure to last a life­time.

Wear it dur­ing the day with a pair of jeans and a clas­sic shirt, then amp it up for the night with a flirty dress.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Dior would go the dis­tance to en­sure each and ev­ery one of its shoes ex­ceed all ex­pec­ta­tions. And it’s no won­der—more than 100 steps are used to test and per­fect a sin­gle Dioressence stiletto.

NEW COLOURS

In 1959, there were only two colours: black (Chris­tian Dior’s favourite) and pink (“The colour of hap­pi­ness and fem­i­nin­ity,” says the de­signer). To­day, the mai­son chal­lenges the con­ven­tional with con­tem­po­rary colours such as an­thracite gray, co­gnac, and other dar­ing mid­night shades.

TRICK OF THE EYE

Ex­clu­sively de­signed to ac­cen­tu­ate the wom­anly curves of a leg, the Dioressence cre­ates the il­lu­sion of a longer sil­hou­ette, while its ex­tremely pointed toe “cleav­age” ex­ag­ger­ates the arch of the in­step. Fi­nally, one step closer to be­ing a su­per­model.
