Christian Dior Resort 2017 collection was shown yesterday afternoon, 31 May, in the Blenheim Palace. The Brand Christian Dior have a history with Blenheim., two of Christian Dior’s charity shows were held in the ’50s in this awesome country house built by the architect Sir John Vanbrugh as a gift to John Churchill, the 1st Duke of Marlborough, in the early 18th century.They were haute couture shows, both held in the presence of Princess Margaret, who was a Cristion Dior customer.The first, in 1954, was designed by Christian Dior, the second, in 1958, by Yves Saint Laurent. The third show staged there yesterday, of course it was a Resort , not Haute Couture, collection was designed by Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux. .Of course ,the collection, didn’t attempt to match the grandeur of the of the surroundings such Bleinheim Palace is, it worked more in the idiom of slightly quirky daywear but the daywear with interesting color combinations, layered slip dresses, classic suiting and tropical prints.There were also a few versions of the coatdresses Dior is known for. Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux has shown a good Christian Dior Resort 2017 collection. Let us wait of the Haute Couture Week which will stage in Paris as usually.
