An Exceptional Christmas by DIOR

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.

  4. 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

  5. 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

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

  12. 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. :(

    ReplyDelete
  13. 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.

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

  23. 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!

  28. 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.

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

  30. 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

  31. 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 :)
