ART WORK: Exploring Christian Dior’s arty connections is a new exhibition at Les Rhumbs, the late designer’s childhood home in Granville which is now a museum. “Dior, the Artists’ Ball” gathers archival Dior creations as well as pieces by the likes of Elsa Schiaparelli and Paul Poiret. Numerous illustrations, photos and memorabilia from artists including Cecile Beaton, Christian Bérard, Raoul Dufy and Giorgio de Chirico are also on display in the exhibition, which explores the influence of art on Dior’s designs. Dior named a number of his frocks after artists, like Dali or Braque. The show runs until Sept. 25.
