Dior Maison’s latest collection of homeware pays homage to classic summertime tropes, as well as a historical motif that is woven through the brand’s storied legacy. Designer Cordelia de Castellane has gleaned inspiration from a pineapple—which is synonymous with equatorial locales—and created a series of objects replicating the fruit’s golden exterior. First seen in a tableware collection from the summer 1973 collection, de Castellane reinterpreted this offering by using Italian blown glass, allowing the elegant shades of green and ochre to enliven a carafe, vase, and a decorative bubble. A carefree joie de vivre emanates from these creations like a balmy bath of pure radiance.
The brand has also tapped into a decorative motif pervasive throughout Dior’s aesthetic history. For fashion presentations staged at the brands’ 30 Avenue Montaigne headquarters in Paris, seats decorated in canework were used extensively, becoming an unmissable House emblem. With a new collection of fine tableware, de Castellane utilizes this design trope on a set of dessert plates that also features a clover and a bee, a homage to the namesake designer’s pet names for virtuoso petites mains located in the House’s ateliers. These fineries upgrade the art of gifting and entertaining—something Monsieur Dior held very dear to his heart—for contemporary clients with elevated sensory pleasures.
