The pace

The most intimate creation there is, the couture piece is the one that only the buyer can best understand. Its value is expressed through a stitch, a detail, a technique or even a fabric… And nothing exists without the unparalleled gesture of a craftsman, transmission, respect for tradition and time.

An exceptional piece, this coat is hand-embroidered by the little hands of Dior’s haute couture workshops. Dior

Faithful to her commitments and her obsession for embroidery, the designer multiplies small and large wonders: here, a lace patchwork skirt, an ensemble encrusted with plant motifs, a coat embroidered with a “tree of life” in paint polychrome silk needlework; farther one bar jacket with smocks and geometric patterns, a second skin dress in silk crepe or another in guipure representing a floral rope pattern… The whole thing is impressive, abundant. As a language of traditions through which workshops express their skills.
