Dior welcomes spring with Les Cerisiers – a cherry-blossom homeware collection

TAPPING into Christian Dior’s strong ties with the land of the Rising Sun, Dior Maison welcomes spring with a cherry blossom-inspired collection titled Les Cerisiers.

From an early age, Dior saw Japan as a place of wonder and fascination. Many argue that the designer had a special affection for Japan, with many of his initial designs being inspired by his various trips to major Japanese cities.

Later on in his career, the couturier welcomed the imperial family during a visit to Paris and designed three civil wedding dresses for Princess Michiko – the former Empress of Japan.

The new homeware collection builds upon the Maison’s strong ties with the country. Les Cerisiers is centred around motifs and themes from the spring-summer 1953 Jardin Japonais collection.

Tableware, glassware and table linens appear embellished with images from the seasonal ensemble such as the bird and the cherry blossom tree.

Similarly, the collection introduces two boxes developed in partnership with the Manufacture des Emaux de Longwy – an acclaimed enamel company established in 1798.

Intertwining Dior’s sophistication with the delicate pink hues of cherry blossom trees, the latest homeware collection makes for the perfect springtime greeting.
