Luxury Brand News In Fashion, Art & Design
Dior Supports Venice Biennale 2022
With a well-known passing for craftsmanship and artistry, Christian Dior put its support behind La Biennale di Venezia 2022. Running now through November 27, 2022, the 59th International Art Exhibition features 213 artists from 58 countries, making it a perfect collaboration for Dior. Titled The Milk of Dreams and set at the Giardini and the Arsenale, the 2022 edition’s curator is industry expert Cecilia Alemani. Cecilia is the first Italian woman to direct the event. And she was sure to celebrate as many female artists as she could for the 2022 edition.
Dior’s involvement at Venice Biennale 2022 is multifaceted. First, they held their second fundraising gala with Venetian Heritage, a philanthropic organization dedicated to preserving cultural treasures in Venice. Set at the Teatro La Fenice, the event took place on the opening day of the Biennale back in April. Designed to fund the restoration of the iconic Venetian Gothic architecture of the palazzo housing the Ca’ d’Oro Museum, the event was scaled back to a dinner out of respect for the victims of the war in Ukraine.
Architect Peter Marino serves as the link between Dior and Venetian Heritage as the chairman of the nonprofit and longtime store designer for Dior. Venice is a mecca of design history that is well worth supporting and Dior has no intention of stopping any time soon.
Fabrizio Plessi Does Lady Dior
In addition to the event, Dior commissioned the 82-year-old video artist Fabrizio Plessi to reinterpret its Lady Dior handbag for Biennale 2022. The result—a gorgeous work of art. Clad in 24-karat gold mosaic by Orsoni Venezia 1888. And with a framed ‘Dior’ as though it is projected on water. The purse is on display at Dior’s boutique in Venice throughout the Biennale.
This collaboration begins the seventh edition of the Dior Lady Art project, consisting of limited-edition handbags designed by top artists. We can’t wait for more!
La Galerie Dior à Paris, A New Musée de la Mode
This year Christian Dior opened a new chic hot spot in Paris, where you can find the best of haute couture and the history of this enormous fashion talent. La Galerie Dior it is a new building where you can find the most important art pieces of Christian Dior, and where you learn all about the designer’s life. La Galerie Dior lovers’ dreams can come true for hours!
Upon entering the gallery you find yourself in a stairway of color, with 1500 miniatures objects by Dior. This is a perfect emersion into the true haute couture house, where the dresses tell a story of the brand’s brilliant success.
The lights and scenography of the museum are the secret ingredients adding to the unforgettable experience created across 13 rooms. For the first time in Dior history, you can find croquis, original documents, original models, and a show of creativity in one place. “Through a unique scenography, La Galerie Dior bears witness to the visionary audacity of Christian Dior and his six successors: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and Maria Grazia Chiuri.”

In Season: Dior Spring/Summer 2022
“At the crossing of bright, bold colors, the power of black, and the elegance of nude, the Dior Spring-Summer 2022 Ready-to-Wear Collection imagined by Maria Grazia Chiuri instills a new way to play with fashion. An ode to freedom and light-hearted self-confidence.”
Dior Haute Couture: Spring/Summer 2022
For Dior’s Spring/Summer 2022 Haute Couture collection the brand celebrated the multi-faceted expertise of artisans around the world. Maria Grazia Chiuri continues to explore the human touch through a focus on the art of embroidery and tailoring, both key elements of couture, in the collection. Maria took the celebration of the artistry of embroidery further in her choice of setting for the runway show. A set resembling an art gallery featuring beautiful embroidered tapestries by Madhvi and Manu Parekh. The power of the human touch on creation is a topic we too have been passionate about this year at Love Happens! So, we loved seeing it unfold in the Dior Spring/Summer 2022 haute couture collection.

We so love the smoldering eyes look and sun-kissed complexion look!
Gris Dior Gets a New Look Limited Edition
“For the new limited-edition New Look collection, the houndstooth pattern bestows its timeless couture elegance upon Gris Dior, the iconic fragrance from La Collection Privée Christian Dior. It represents the meeting of two timeless Dior style codes: the color gray, given olfactory expression in this clean, pure scent, and the famous black-and-white graphic pattern that has continuously graced the Dior collections. Like a couture manifesto, the houndstooth pattern adorns the perfume bottle and case.”
Dior Cruise 2022 Bags
Another fabulous new set of fabulous designs by Maria Grazia Chiuri make up the Dior Cruise 2022 Collection. In celebration of the eternal beauty of Greece, the collection offers up sportswear styles, with loose cuts, and bold motifs. In particular, Cruise 2022 is filled with some fun bags for your personal summer collection!
Fall/Winter 2022 Launch Paris
In March, Dior launched its Fall/Winter 2022 Ready-to-Wear collection during Paris Design Week. The collection highlighted technology and fashion in collaboration with Italian start-up D-Air lab. And as we always love to see, Maria incorporated feminism into the season with a partnership with “The Next Era”. A series of female portraits ranging from the 16th to the 19th century by visual artist Mariella Bettineschi. Mostly paintings by male artists, Mariella slit the featured women’s eyes, creating a sense of “double vision,” thus calling on the dualities of female existence. When cool weather returns, we will surely be looking to this collection!
Dior’s Fall 2022 Show In Seoul
South Korea is hot on the designer market so Dior’s choice to host its first-ever fashion show in Seoul was not without intent. Set at the capital’s Ewha Womans University with Dior ambassador and K-pop star Jisoo in the front row, a special fall 2022 collection was presented. Dior also partnered with the university as part of its Women@Dior mentorship program. The overall looks were a contemporary spin on uniforms—professional forms with some punk influence. Maybe not our personal look for next Fall, but certainly, we continue to love what Dior is up to! If you are visiting Seoul, be sure to stop by the brand’s new concept store in Seoul’s Seongsu-dong district for a fabulous brand experience.
