As Maria Grazia Chiuri develops her identity at and for the house of Dior, she feels its complexities and pressures, particularly for couture. ‘OK, I want to determine what it means for me to do couture.’ I think it is important to maintain this idea that it’s wearable, because in any case we have the clients. But at the same time, I don’t want to lose the idea of dreaming.”

Lest anyone think Chiuri would ease into that idea of a wearable dream, think again. For her Dior couture debut, she authored an extravagant visual tale, one that drew on the founder’s love of gardens. Chiuri had one installed on the grounds of the Musée Rodin, hers a fairy-tale place, magical, sinister and overgrown with foliage. Arriving guests wended through an outdoor maze, and once inside, around straight and curved seating of the bucolic sort, covered in dense greenery. Centering the garden: an ominously enticing tree, its branches strung with beads, ribbons and tarot regalia.

The dresses, meanwhile, included moody, broody, heroine-lost-in-the-woods gowns and a lovely white ecclesiastical shroud. Mostly, there were exquisitely rendered variations on delicate otherworldliness, laces and tulles gloriously embellished, some worn with fanciful Stephen Jones headgear.

Jennifer Lawrence looks right at home in a Parisian apartment, lounging in chunky, off-the-shoulder sweaters, her blonde hair casually pulled back, leaving a few stray wisps. Mario Sorrenti captured the “Joy” actress for Dior’s spring campaign, featuring the last ready-to-wear collection by Raf Simons, who exited the house last October and has yet to be replaced.

Handbags are also a focal point, including new versions of the Diorama, and a new style — the Diorever. The sleek, top-handled tote has a front flap that can be inserted inside.

Dior Pre-Fall 2015 Collection: Dior took over Tokyo’s sumo stadium on Thursday night to showcase creative director Raf Simons’ vision for pre-fall: a futuristic, outdoorsy take on daywear rife with both function and sequined shimmer.

“I think it’s a little bit more edgy, this one. So I’m very excited,” Simons said. The Belgian designer said he drew inspiration from disparate influences — the movie “Blade Runner,” Tokyo’s street fashion and urban sprawl, the Sixties-era experimentalism of Paco Rabanne, an old photo of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin in paillette-embellished underwear — and distilled them into new wardrobe pieces for the Dior woman trekking into the city in the dead of winter or taking a mini break with her kids at the Welsh seaside.

The resulting “Esprit Dior” collection was a chic, modern lineup heavy on coats and coat-like dresses in structured, outerwear fabrics, many of them based on the house’s signature Bar shape that Simons said he wanted to push “even further.” He turned to “outdoor” fabrics like heavy cottons, washed leathers and waxed fabrics to construct much of the collection. Structured coats and bustier dresses were layered over skintight, sequined bodywear, which Simons called a “second skin.” Several of these shimmery pieces featured intricate patterns mimicking knitwear motifs like the cable and Fair Isle. Other exits included a mink and patent leather dress and a silver leather astrakhan coat. There were chunky platform boots and micro Miss Dior bags, while rough stone rings adorned nearly every model’s finger.

Dior Addict Fluid Stick, its first lip hybrid that can do it all in a single stroke. Not a gloss, not a lacquer, not a lipstick. Dior Addict Fluid Stick is a totally new kind of lip product. A spectacular fluid that you can barely feel. What it does is combine maximum color impact, glossy shine and a “no-makeup” feel in a lip color boasting sensational hold and comfort. Dior Addict Fluid Stick is an innovation bomb.

Color and shine come together for maximum impact with intense lip stain pigments directly encapsulated in spheres of gloss for long-wearing results. Dior Addict Fluid Stick is formulated with water, not wax, for a light feeling on the lips, an immediate fresh effect and addictive sensation. A pure object of desire : the illusion of a lipstick is maintained until the case is opened and an applicator emerges that is steeped in color and as precise and easy to apply as a lipstick…

Within the Dior Addict Fluid Stick palette, are four maximum impact, must-have shades: Pandore, Wonderland, Aventure and Mirage. Sophisticated, ultra-trendy it-shades that evoke what Christian Dior said of his most spectacular creations, “breakthrough designs, symbols of new fashion… that will be on the covers or in features of magazines.”

Natalie Portman Miss Dior Campaign was photographed by Tim Walker in a series of enchanting portraits. “Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is a smooth and carefully formed perfume, not a sensory assault, but rather a halo, like an aura. It’s a “bubble ” perfume, one possessing the extreme elegance of gentleness ,” states François Demachy, the house’s exclusive perfumer-creator. At the heart of this delicate fragrance lies the subtly sweet perfume of the peony, recreated here through a harmonious combination of rose and fruity notes.
