Dior returns to England’s Blenheim Palace to unveil its Cruise collection.

The residence of the Duke of Marlborough, is one of England’s grandest palaces and the birthplace of Winston Churchill.

The show brought a contemporary Dior back to the venue of earlier triumphs in 1954 and 1958, when shows attended by Princess Margaret introduced austere, post-war Britain to the style and beauty of French fashion at its most sofisticated.
Dior’s creative team of
Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux pondered on how the 50’s fashionista would react to the latest creations, both came to the conclusion that the ‘in crowd’ would be “shocked,” but intrigued as Lucie Meier explains:“Some excited some ready to wear them some maybe not, I think it was kind of a new interpretation of the new look also for us with the very structured top and the pleated skirts.”
According to Dior’s design team the new collection explored “the conversation between France and England” – to reflect the long cultural and fashion interplay between the two countries, which have often traded trends as well as blows.
Some of the pieces made references to British hunting styles, and countryside elegance, but overall the effect was more French than English.
