Haute Couture and Architecture can meet around these values. From this combination, a duality emerges.

The Haute-Couture is linked to fashion, the ephemeral, and constantly needs to renew itself.
Architecture transcends fashions and its image needs to outlive time that goes by and continue to represent de Dior spirit in a lasting manner.

More than a question of style, the Architecture is a question of light, proportion, and elegance. So, under the light, the sculptured white volume reveals its cut. Through large curved movements of white concrete clear figures of the ‘plissée’ take shape, between which the spaces of the boutique slide in. The nobility of the smooth and delicate surfaces is given by a contemporary material made of ultra high-density concrete and by marble powder.

The project also respects its «commercial» nature. The building does not want to appear as an institution or a museum; and its generous shop windows open to the immediate public place. The drawing is influenced by the suggestive inspirations of Miami , images of sun and beaches along with an idea of dynamism, youth, and contemporary design.

Architecture and Haute Couture unite in the common desire to seduce.
