Curated by Florence Muller, the showcase is to explore 10 themes via clothing, accessories, perfumes, Patrick Demarchelier photos and works by Chinese contemporary artists including Liu Jian Hua, Zhang Huan and Wen Fang. Founder Christian Dior’s love of gardens, the maison’s celebrity connections and its emblematic codes are among the themes, with high jewelry also getting its owng spotlight.
