Just after New Year’s Day, Chinese New Year is coming soon. Once the Chinese New Year, the most indispensable element is red. What do you think of when it comes to red? Couplets posted in front of the door, hanging lanterns, firecrackers, red envelopes to send blessings … often red makes people instinctively associate Chinese red, but you know that the founder of such a top foreign fashion house also loves red Do you have a bell? He is the famous Mr. Dior. Opening Dior this year will satisfy all your imaginations about Dior red.
Mr. Dior’s story about red starts with his childhood and goes back to the early 20th century .
Born in the French seaside resort city of Granville, he lives in the Granville estate, ranks second among five children, and grew up in a very superior family condition.
The father is a wealthy businessman in the fertilizer business, and the mother is a representative of elegant and intelligent women. The gentle mother likes to plant flowers , and she intentionally transformed a private garden in the Granville Manor . It was quite famous at the time and attracted many envy.
In the ears of his mother, Mr. Dior deeply imprinted all kinds of flowers and red in his childhood. He once said:“I inherited my love for flowers from my mother. This means that when I am with plants and flower gardens, it is my happiest time.” The garden is not only a childhood memory for him , but also a source of inspiration for fashion creation .
From childhood love to adult branding, Mr. Dior’s passion for red has never stopped . In 1947, after the Second World War, Paris was alive and well. Mr. Dior quietly started his fashion dream journey at 30 Montaigne Avenue in the hinterland of Dior.
Before long, he shocked the fashion industry with a new look, the New Look Revolution. This new look is also the first series of Mr. Dior’s “Spring / Summer 1947 Custom Collection”, which is the “Corolle” series. In this eye-catching show, many people are impressed with the color, including him Beloved red .
These dresses with dior red blessings were called “trafalgar dresses” by Mr. Dior , French means surprise. It can also be understood that, in the eyes of Mr. Dior, red is his Trafalgar . Soon after the big show ended, the trend of new looks quickly spread to the world. In each subsequent release show, almost you can see a stunning red dress .
In the second year after the new look, Mr. Dior created the 1948 Fall / Winter Advanced Customized Series , which is mainly based on the “Piercing Wings” series , and the interpretation of red can still be seen in it. This precious maroon “Arizona” wool long travel coat is cut from bright red wool, which is from the “Piercing Wings” series, which is a classic.
Dior red in history
In the next few years, in Dior’s classic “century”, “vertical”, “slender”, and meandering “series, red is even more endless.
With the change of time, red has been continued in Mr. Dior’s design, and more styles have appeared in succession . At the beginning of the 20th century, high-class women at that time liked to wear sports suits designed by big-name designers to participate in horse racing. Until the 1950s, sports cars replaced horse racing, and this hobby did not change. For Mr. Dior, who is very good at designing match-watching clothes, at this time, he made a lot of clothes that accorded with the people’s favor.
Many high-end people will wear a gray “Long Shang” afternoon dress when they attend the jockey club during the day, and in the evening they will wear a red “Marcel Ayme” Dior twill evening gown . Due to its unique design and outstanding color matching, Dior red evening dress once played the role of evening wear, and was favored by celebrities at the time.
The next two years, the eighth year of New Look. Mr. Dior has created a revolutionary new series-the high-end “H” series of autumn and winter 1954 . This series of clothes weakened sense of line, emphasizing from the chest, with a tight beam design was inspired by the palace fashion Francois period .
In Mr. Dior’s “H” series, there is such a special “Moulin Rouge” crimson tulle dress , which is particularly noticeable. The “Moulin Rouge” is named after the famous Moulin Rouge. But this is not surprising, because in the work of Mr. Dior, a lot of clothing inspiration comes from Paris.
The gorgeous red color makes the “Moulin Rouge” suit famous , and many notable noble ladies wear them to enter and out of high places. Sexy yet flamboyant red, once again became a true portrayal of Parisian women’s nightlife in the 1950s .
In the next high-end “Y” series of autumn and winter of 1955 , Mr. Dior perfectly combined red with the velvet embroidery featured in the season, combined with mink trim, and designed a very gorgeous “Samarcande” evening dress coat.
At this time, dior red also became more luxurious, and was favored by more and more tasters.
When time passed to the 1956 advanced custom “arrow-shaped” series , Mr. Dior’s favorite flower and pattern design returned again. One of the dior red “Star of the Sea” dresses printed with a starfish pattern , with red lips and red earrings, is the best interpretation of the Parisian woman’s style.
Among the patterns, Mr. Dior likes to mix flowers and red for design. Farid Chernoy once called him in “Impression of Dior”: “Dior is undoubtedly an inspirational gardener.” The 1950s were undoubtedly the period when flowers were the most used, and various flowers filled the dress.
In Mr. Dior’s spring-summer 1957 high-end customized “Freedom Series”, his beloved flowers and reds were fixed together in the pleated classic Andalousie Dior red lace tulle dress.
When the high-end customized “spindle” series in autumn and winter of 1957, the last series of Mr. Dior was born. We can still see the familiar dior red, and the burning floral pattern.
It can be seen that during the ten years of quiet cultivation, whether it was the high-end custom-made “Corolla” series of the new spring and summer of 1947 or the high-end custom-made “spindle” series of the autumn and winter of 1957, he never put down the red color. Preference and interpretation .
As he once said: “I love red deeply, because this is the color that symbolizes life.”
My deepest impression of red is the cohesiveness and solemnity it can bring to people invisible, as well as enthusiasm, enthusiasm and boldness, mysterious and tense, and makes your heart beat faster.
As one of Dior’s classic colors, red, in the post-Dior era, you can still see the wonderful interpretation and inheritance of it by different designers. Remember the Pirate Lord John Galliano dedicated the red Christian Dior Spring / Summer 2011 show ? Little kk is wearing a red gradient clothing opening scene, so far vividly remembered.
There was also a Christian Dior 2012 spring and summer high order book brought by Bill Gaytten. The pictures of Liu Wen and He Sui wearing red chiffon garments at that time were also classics to cry.
By the time of Raf Simons, Mr. Dior’s beloved red had become more pure and enchanting with the oversized blessing.
In 2016, after DIOR ushered in Maria Grazia Chiuri , the first female creative director in history , Mr. Dior’s beloved red has a new look, becoming more fashionable and diversified.
Maria Grazia Chiuri has brought two sets of red outfits in her first DIOR 2017 spring and summer ready-to-wear collection . The integration of J’ADIOR with chiffon and georgette made Mr. Dior’s beloved red lighter and more feminine .
In the next series, different interpretations of Dior Red can be seen almost every year. From classic Bar Jackets to tulle skirts and coats with floral elements.
It can be found that no matter what period, the red that Mr. Dior loves is a timeless fashion element and symbol, still classic and still full of vitality.
