Dior’s Creative Director, Raf Simons has collaborated with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to pay tribute to the famous designer, Christian Dior. Warhol’s sketches from the 1950’s, including shoes and a woman’s face, were printed on Dior’s iconic bags, the Lady Dior and Diorissimo and also embroidered on dresses.
To commemorate this collaboration, the famous French concept store Colette, will be displaying their windows on 213 Rue Saint-Honoré with ready-to-wear items from the Fall/Winter 2013 Collection. Dior clutch bags with Warhol shoe print will also be featured in the store’s windows. Colette will have it on display from October 20 – 27, 2013 during the FIAC (Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain).
