A recent visit to the Dior perfume counter at Saks Fifth Avenue inspired me to dream up a wish list. I ran out of time before I could dive into La Collection Privée, but I plan to investigate this lesser-known line of scents in the near future. The last and only Dior scent I’ve ever purchased was the 2012 reformulation of Miss Dior, which I like very much. A few years have passed since then, and I’m in the market for something a bit more mature. In the words of Christian, “A drop of perfume and you are dressed in Dior.”
I got to thinking how else I could potentially dress myself in Dior and surveyed the ready-to-wear and jewelry online. I envisioned both of these skirts paired with a white button-up and black ballet flats. The first is ready-to-wear, and the second is from the autumn-winter 2022-2023 haute couture collection. #pleatsofperfection
Designed by Victoire de Castellane, Creative Director of Jewelry, the diamond and gold earrings seem small enough for everyday wear. (Side note: Victoire’s familial scenes (here and here) on Instgram bring full-fledged cozy vibes.)
I only have one cape but am in need of many more. This one in beige is highly versatile. I imagine it as an elegant substitute for a trench coat.
