First look: Dior’s Kingdom of Colours

Resplendent with luscious, peachy or powdery pink, cherry red, sea green and violet aubergine, the new Dior colour palette glows with gaiety, radiating joie de vivre.

It’s one of nature blossoming like springtime, like the brightly coloured flowers so beloved of Christian Dior. In the garden where he spent his youth, at Granville in Normandy, he was captivated by the bright and vibrant shades that burst into bloom before his eyes.

Rose petals contrasted with the fresh green of luxuriant herbs, with huge swathes of flowers making up artistically coloured canvasses. When he became a couturier, this passion for colour informed all his creations. His striking dresses were a revelation for women the world over. After years of dullness and darkness, Dior’s embrace of colour marked a cheerful renaissance, the veritable arrival of spring.

Peter Philips, the House’s creative and image director for make-up, pays homage to this colourful heritage. This spring, the Kingdom of Colours look celebrates a technicolour world – one of nature, one of Dior. A graphic and contemporary palace of pigments, in which all combinations are permitted in order to light up the face.
