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.
A SHOE MEANT FOR DAY AND NIGHT
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.
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.
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.
