PARIS (AP) — Bouquets, art, and Dior’s planet-famous ateliers collided on Friday for a sweet-smelling explosion of creativity. The house’s Paris Manner 7 days show was an homage to late British painter Duncan Grant and celebrated member of London’s Bloomsbury Group, who died in 1978.
VIP attendees gawped as they entered a DIOR-branded tent to learn the makeshift nation vista — replete with about 19,000 genuine poppies, wildflowers and flora planted on hills beside two reconstructed English country properties. All this for the 10 moment fashion exhibit. The established was, of training course, meant to evoke Grant’s rolling landscapes.
