Tablescape Inspirations: Dior Maison Launches Ceramics Inspired By Lily Of The Valley
A garden can be the universe for many young children. Roaming through his mother’s Eden in Normandy, Dior was enamoured by the dainty silhouette of the lilies of the valley. Its coquettish buds and bell-shaped shadow have become a calling card into his past, a comforting bit of nostalgia that the designer has brought with him onto runways worldwide.
Discreet and subtle, the lily of the valley is a symbol of joy and purity. It announces the arrival of spring: warmer days and greener grass, a lovely time. Dior himself has worn these flowers in his buttonholes and sewn them into the hems of his haute couture designs. Those in vogue may remember the iconic silhouette of the 1957 Muguet dress, or the Diorissimo fragrance, both of which have been inspired by the very same bloom that adorn the new Dior Maison line.
