“ABOVE all, I loved to learn by heart the names and descriptions of flowers in the colour catalogues from Vilmorin-Andrieux,” Monsieur Dior wrote in his memoirs.
Inspired by the tender moments the House’s founder spent cultivating his garden at the family villa in Normandy, Dior has unveiled the Granville collection, a flora-adorned selection of homeware designed by Cordelia de Castellane.
In homage to Dior’s fascination with botany, hydrangeas and branches of wisteria in shades of amethyst, emerald or, soft grey punctuate a line-up of plates, mugs, small trays and hand-painted glasses.
Vases, structured boxes and delicate candle holders in Murano glass complete the colourful line – “a gentle, and essential expression of lifestyle, for the home.”
