Inspired by Agatha Christie’s imagination and imbued with captivating elegance, the Fall-Winter 2020-2021 collection by Cordelia de Castellane, Artistic Director of Baby Dior, is a veritable enchanted odyssey from the flamboyant banks of the Nile to the spellbinding landscapes traversed by the Orient Express.
To start the journey, ethereal tulle skirts, velvet jackets and dresses sprinkled with paillettes appear in a palette of powdery pinks, evoking the magnificence of Egyptian sunsets. Designed in harmony with these delicate creations, little boys’ wardrobes are composed of sophisticated looks in navy and beige, reflecting the Dior art of tailoring.
The collection also stops over in a snowy paradise along the Danube. Reinvented with drawings of hot air balloons, butterflies or elephants, the iconic toile de Jouy Monsieur Dior so loved adorns, in tone-on-tone, shirts and blue sweats for boys. On girls’ coats and dresses, it appears etched with gold. With magical lightness, pleated white skirts recall powdery snowfall.
Amidst these dreamscapes, the Dior Oblique motif enhances the lining of a black vinyl parka and also appears in a subtly sparkly version. The curves of the “CD” logo grace sweaters, sailor-stripe tops, belts and shoes. Timeless houndstooth embellishes ensembles and dresses, while the emblematic Bar jacket first created by Christian Dior in 1947 is reinterpreted as a total look in blue denim or beige cotton gabardine. A coton and cashmere shirt reprises the gradated colors of the sky; a unisex windbreaker and sneakers complete these children’s looks.
More than ever, these pieces invite all manner of mixing and matching, to personalize beyond gender and styles — and to embark for a fairytale wonderland.
