An Exceptional Christmas by DIOR

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Dior has truly put together a dreamy shoot for it's latest catalogue. It's called, "An Exceptional Christmas". Exceptional is definitely the right word for it. If there was a fashion heaven, this is how I would envision it to be. You know a place, where money wouldn't matter. One could reach into the clouds and pick whatever handbag they wished for, where you could walk around in haute couture everyday, pick fabulous designer shoes from a garden and exquisite jewelry from a tree. Snap...Snap...Wake Up! It's only a DREAM, but wouldn't that be NICE? Well Dior, has put this fantasy together for us via gorgeous photos from Koto Bolofo (photographer), Nimue Smit (model), Raf Simons (design) and an exquisite video that brings it all to LIFE. I'm loving all the tulle, chiffon and softness in these pics. I think it's a little touch of Alice in Wonderland. Gosh, I have to purchase a Dior handbag one day. I adore them. I know everyone loves Hermes Birkin and Kelly, but my dream handbag is a Dior.

Gorgeous pics, but I have to admit that my first thought was "They've completely copied and ripped off Tim Walker"!

Have a great day and don't get stressed out by the Christmas preparations ;-) xo

Mademoiselle Poirot said...

Oh, one more thing: In the 4th pic from top (big roses, pastel dress) is a black handbag. SERIOUSLY?! A black handbag with a pastel evening dress?!!!! Absolutely non, non, non! Sorry, completely wrong - in my humble opinion of course ;-) xo

Mica said...

Oh that video is like a dram land! I would love to live there! The photo of the bags floating around on balloons is amazing :)

What a lovely video! Dior really has the best ads! Everything looks so pretty

Calily Caline said...

The pictures and the video are so beautiful ;__; I love Alice in Wonderland.

Ms. Dainty Doll said...

Oooh...I love this...Spring...I can't wait for it!! Very dreamy and lovely!! They always make the best campaigns and videos...I wish I could work there, haha!! Forget the other designers, I would take Dior over them all...a bright pink handbag would be awesome!! Hope you are having a great day doll!! xo

Little Rus said...

I know it's meant to be great, but unfortunately all I can see is Louis Vuitton, bit of Hermes and earlier Dior inspired photos. Simmons disappoints yet again. :(

Little Rus said...

P.S. Forgot to say - they even got "inspired" by Tim Walker's photography - so poor... I actually hoped they asked him, but then re-read the text and realised that it was some other guy... I am speechless, to be honest.

Outside Looking In said...

I'd love to own a Dior bag too---every since Blair on Gossip Girl carried one! SIGH!!!!

It sure would be fun to go out into the garden and pluck out a pair of shoes :) I also wish the garden had a money tree, lol!

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

So fabulous. The floating purses (could be cute for a birthday party theme some day) and the Aliceish look. Also the butterflies. Perfection.

Coco said...

This is totally awesome!My dream bag is a Chanel, but when I saw the Dior collection at Lafayette in Paris I was open mouthed!

TheTinyHeart said...

Can I have all the purses and shoes in the catalog? Haha!

miss b said...

As a shoe and handbag addict, this was the perfect post for me! Such creative and pretty settings too. I love this type of photoshoot where there's an element of fantasy. I also liked the party dresses in your last post. This time of year is a great excuse for sparkle and on Christmas Day I shall be wearing my new top which has lurex thread running through it!

Kim: i am a huge fan of Diorissimo bags. I adore its sleek and clean design but OMG to its price..haha. Much cheaper than Hermes but it is still very expensive. I want one in each color, pleaseeeee. What i love about Dior is that you dont see everyone carrying it. I guess Dior bags are not that popular.

Lindsay from Black + Blonde One said...

The "new look" reference. The tulle. The BAGS! Everything is perfect! Thanks for posting, Kim!

FASHION TALES said...

Ahh, the shoes! This is such a lovely dream of fashion wonderland. I've loved those butterflies and just everything really. Thanks for brightening my day Kim. xx/Madison

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

This is my kind of dream and I would love to pluck one of those amazing bags from the air and make it mine lol. The fantasy and whimsy of this campaign is lovely but I can't help but think it's very Tim Walker inspired. I'll take a Dior or a Hermes Birkin. I not picky haha ;p

Thanks for sharing Kim I hope you're back to 100% now :)
