“After women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given the world. ”
- Christain Dior
This spring, Dior breathes the scent of liberty and youth over bucolic spirits. A creation in pastel shades, invented by Tyen, is incarnated as a fantastic garden, where flashes of festive violet and floral green exhilarate romantic hearts. This extremely light version of pure sophistication is presented in delicate, hand-finished pieces. Whether it be couture, jewellery or make-up, "luxury accepts all the vagaries of the imagination," said Christian Dior. You are hereby invited to the Dior Garden Party.
The colours of the make-up are studied with as much rigour and lyricism as a dress is. Each creation aims to encapsulate the essence of the colour: a balance between a faithful reproduction of the exact nature of a shade, and a vision of the same, enhanced by the imagination. Whether the source of inspiration lies in the print of a dress, a waterlily, or a rose from the Granville gardens, the Dior eye, taste and standards aim to transform simple eyeshadows, lipsticks and nail polishes into truly colourful emotional experiences.
Five Couleurs Palettes
Sumptuous decors have been delicately pressed onto the surface of the eyeshadows. As though inspired by a Couture fabric, the flowers in these eye shadow palettes delight the eyes and bear an astonishing resemblance to hand embroidered designs on delicate tulle. High standards are transformed into passion. The legendary 5 Couleurs palette is reinvented as a charming Collector's edition, with roses seemingly embroidered on the surface of the eyeshadows.
The two seductive colour harmonies of this 'Garden Edition' are the object of everyone's desires.
The Garden Pastels harmony floats between flowers and foliage, with its pale pink, buttercup yellow and luminous greens.
As for the Garden Roses harmony, it creates a fever of tender pinks, Parma violet and silver, accentuated by a devastating purple.

Rosy Glow Blush
Radiate happiness and modernity with the Rosy Glow blush, which enhances your unique cheek colour for a natural healthy glow effect. Thanks to Fresh Color Reveal technology, it intuitively adjusts to the moisture of each skin to make the cheeks blush as though through emotion. The colour is transparent, customized and ultra-natural for an original, fresh result full of grace.
Dior Garden Clutch
At Dior, make-up is viewed as an artistic profession in the same way as Couture and Accessories are. Each new collection is a renewed challenge striving for creative excellence. The hand finished metal cases are inspired by the expertise of a jeweller, and extreme care is taken over the creation of these ornaments, conceived as jewels.
The Dior Garden Clutch, a precious object whose pale pink shell, embossed with a delicate weave pattern and closed with two metallic, rose- shaped buttons, is emblematic of these exacting standards; the same standards which have forged the reputation and success of the Dior collections.
An accessory of exquisite colours happily opens this lunch on the lawn. Like a pinkish white woven basket inset with an initialled metal plaque, the Dior Garden Clutch is an initiation into the delights of beauty. Unclasp the two rose buttons that seal this precious object to discover, in a gleaming silver setting, the essential shadows and glosses for fresh and radiant eyes and lips.
The Dior Garden Clutch is available in two colour harmonies:
Milly Garden, paying tribute to the Couturier's country house, presents a contrast of tender pink and slivery blue with a violet-tinged grey for the eyes. These shades are accompanied by two fresh pinks to enhance the lips; the first is a Lip Maximizer, which plumps lips and lets desire take flight; the second is a gloss.
Granville Garden, leading you down to the cliff-top rose garden, reveals a second harmony of precious pink and pale green, accentuated by a deep brown, to audaciously emphasise eyes and match the apricot-tinged, "pink kiss" lip shades.

Dior Vernis Garden Party
The gems of the collection are the flower inspired nail shades, as seen on the models in the latest 2011-2012 Fall Winter Haute Couture show. Dior has created two new exquisite shades, Waterlily, a soft green, and Forget-me-not, a floral mauve. Flirtatious and elegant, the two Dior Garden Party nail polish shades are also...perfumed. Exhilarating rose vapours are seductively inviting, arousing the senses.
Three Couleurs Smoky palette
The 3 Couleurs Smoky palette is also invited to this garden party and adopts the spirit of gardens and flowers. Two contrasting colour harmonies set the tone of exhilaration and temptation:
Smoky Garden and Smoky Violet tell a sensual tale of chiaro-scuro. The first flutters from glints of light-bathed chlorophyll to the refreshing, deep shade of leaves. The second sways among petal pink, soft Parma violet and precious purple. The sublime juxtaposition of matte and shimmering textures softly and stylishly sculpts the eyes.
