ART DE VIVRE

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The News -

Go bold or go home—that seems to be on Dior’s cur­rent agenda. Af­ter its lat­est Cruise ’17 col­lec­tion at Blen­heim Palace, the French mai­son set an­other stan­dard by col­lab­o­rat­ing with con­tem­po­rary artist Marc Quinn to rein­vent the iconic Lady Dior bag. Here, BAZAAR lays down three things to know about Dior’s lat­est en­deav­our with the art world. Quinn’s hy­per­real flo­ral in­ter­pre­ta­tions for Dior’s most cov­etable arm can­dies are in­spired by his ‘In the Night Gar­den’ se­ries. White, vi­o­let, and black or­chids play against dra­matic land­scapes. The Lady Dior Fos­sil Record bag (only 20 pieces in the world) fea­tures a flower re­lief em­bossed into sil­ver leather, eter­nally frozen at full bloom. Even through this col­lab­o­ra­tion, the artist ques­tions man and his re­la­tion­ship with na­ture. “‘Iris’ is de­rived from the Greek word ‘rain­bow’, and in the colours, there is a cel­e­bra­tion of in­di­vid­u­al­ity,” says Quinn.
