Dior Zémire

‘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.
