The history of the bow
Among the timeless codes of the Dior universe, the art of the bow plays a major role. From the New Look, it paid tribute to the sophisticated Age of Enlightenment that was so dear to Christian Dior.
A founding leitmotif, the bow was tied at the neck of Miss Dior in a touch of Couture. Christened the “dagger bow”, it emphasised the elegance of a Couture perfume.
“I like bows to finish a neckline, decorate a hat or close a belt. Whether small, large or enormous, I like them in any style and any material,” Christian Dior himself liked to emphasise.
Embodying the graceful femininity constantly emphasised by Christian Dior, the bow was an essential punctuating element in his designs and favourite decoration that he played with skilfully. In discreet form, the bow is a witty manifestation of the masculine bow tie. In full form, tied shell-fashion like a handkerchief, it is the eye-catching finishing touch of a dress.
The bow is a classic element, both structural and architectural. Known as the “Fontanges” it was a charming echo of the ribbons that Louis XIV’s mistress wore in her hair, and quickly became a recurrent reference in the Dior universe, decorating, among other things, the oval medallions of the House. Today, Dior Haute Couture continues to use this Parisian touch full of elegance and constantly celebrates the delicate nature of this tender and poetic art of the bow.
The fragrance itself is fruity, floral and woody, featuring notes of Beragmot, Blood Orange and Sicilian Mandarin combined with Jasmine, Patchouli, Vetiver and Sandalwood.
