Continuing to introduce the iconic pieces of fashion giants after presenting the top 10 most iconic Chanel pieces, we come to the ultra-flabbergasting options by Christian Dior, coming as the best legacy of its ideology and the classics. “Chance always comes to the aid of those who really want something”, Christian Dior wrote in his memories. And after the totally dumbfounding success of Dior from the very start, we can clearly tell what he, indeed, really wanted. Thus considering the most significant and vital pieces of Dior having made its history, we can mention the following top 10 most iconic Christian Dior pieces designed so far!
Lady Dior Handbag
This is the very first piece we would like to present to your attention. Designed in 1995, this uber-chic and feminine handbag conquered the hearts of all fashionable ladies instantaneously! Lady Diana was one of the biggest fans of this handbag, carrying it everywhere she went! Indeed, this is one of the most descriptive and special pieces ever designed by Dior.
Dior Bar Bag
Continuing with the handbags, the second option we would like to talk about is the Dior Bar Bag. First presented in the 1947 “New Look” collection of Dior, this handbag quickly became one of the most successful and iconic pieces of Dior legacy. It is one of the best reminders about the rich history and traditions of Dior, coming presented with some modern interpretations up to now.
Dior J’Adore Perfume
The following absolutely dumbfounding alternative we would like to present in the list of most iconic Dior pieces is the legendary J’Adore perfume created in 1999 by Calice Becker. This perfume reflects the best aspects of the Dior-made chic. With top notes including bergamot, mandarin, plum, heart notes with champaca flower, ivy leaves, jasmine sambac, Turkish rose, violet, orchid, blackberry and base notes of musk and wood, it does have its ethereal smell that conquers the heart instantly.
Miss Dior Perfume
As for the pioneers of the perfume pieces by Dior, Miss Dior created in 1947 is the first and one of the most iconic options presented so far. Created by Jean Carles and Paul Vacher, it quickly got included in the beauty arsenals of very many ladies, and it actually does up to now. The top notes of this perfume are aldehydes, gardenia, galbanum, clary sage and bergamot, middle notes are carnation, iris, orris root, jasmine, neroli, lily-of-the-valley, rose and narcissus, while base is composed of labdanum, leather, sandalwood, amber, patchouli, oakmoss and vetiver.
Dior Bubble Dress
Coming to Dior dresses, we should start with the uber-creative and cute Bubble Dress, designed in 1956, and having become one of the best exemplars of Dior creativity and high-class sophistication.
Dior Bar Suit and Hat
This ethereal combo is the following catchy and noteworthy option in our list created in 1947. The key of the tremendous success of this look underlies in the general outline, composed of the tight-fitting top part of the suit and the padded hips, which emphasize the waist ideally. The straw hat the models first came introducing this design with is also noteworthy.
‘Zémire’ is one of Dior’s most historically bound pieces at the same time being one of the classiest. It carries the name of an opera by Grétry, which was first performed at the royal palace of Fontainebleau in 1771. Accordingly, it was then called ‘Fontainebleau’, and only later its new name ‘Zémire’ appeared. This piece was first observed as such in Dior’s ‘Ligne H’ collection. The original model had a grey shade and was made of silk satin and was shown to Princess Margaret at Blenheim Castle in 1954.
Shoes by Roger Vivier for Dior
The classic shapes Roger Vivier’s designed shoes had, encompassed some classy details like stiletto forms, which were nicely synthesized with experimental aspects and design details like silk, lace, beads, pearls, appliques, jewels. So these shoes still do have their influence on the creation of the Dior footwear.
Capture: Dior’s First Skincare
Created in 1986, this product was the first and one of the most successful steps of Christian Dior in the world of fashion industry. It put a new beginning for another great tradition of Dior: the creation of skin care products. Having such a proficient pioneer, the products that followed were just as impressive.
Dior Rouge Lipstick
Finally, the last but not least classy and iconic option we would like to present is the totally chic and astounding Dior Rouge Lipstick, first presented in 1953, and further forming an essential part of Dior makeup products. It also forms the core point of the new Dior Rouge Iconic collection, presented last year.
