Raf Simons, Artistic Director of Christian Dior, gained inspiration from the colours, textures and light of the landscape of the Cote d’Azure to design the collection. The clothes are a mix of contrasts – architectural but fluid, masculine yet feminine – and a natural reflection of the landscape in which they were showcased.

The utopian residence, otherwise known as the ‘Bubble Palace’, was designed by Hungarian architect Antti Lovag who was inspired by the igloos he enjoyed building as child. The organically shaped building integrates with the surrounding nature in perfect harmony and offers stunning vantage points of palm trees, cliffs and the Lérins Islands in the distance – a faultless complement to Dior’s collection.
