“The idea of the Black Carpet was to convey the energy and rebel attitude of the runway collection on a capsule collection of eveningwear while playing with the embellishment codes and the know-how of Dior. Reworking the evening suit by pushing it in more extreme interpretations.” – Kris Van Assche

The season’s Spring 2018 black carpet collection pushes into new formal territory: the tail coat and cummerbund are included amongst embellished jacket styles featuring a confetti of apliqué leather sequins, clustered bugle beads, and bee embroideries across the breast and collar. The lily of the valley flower, a favorite of monsieur Dior, returns in a subtle matte black brooch or all-over decoration.
