Email

Iconsiam Is Delighted To Announce The Presentation Of The Exhibition ‘Lady Dior As Seen By’, Featuring Interpretations Of The Lady Dior Bag By Renowned Artists, From  December 8, 2018  To January 20, 2019 At Iconsiam

In 1995 The Lady Dior Was Born. Upon Its Creation It Was Presented By The First Lady Of France As A Gift To Diana, Princess Of Wales, Darling Of The World’s Media, And Affectionately Known In France As Lady Di, Who Had Come To Open The Cézanne Exhibition In Paris. The Princess Took It Everywhere With Her And Ordered One In Every Version. Its Topstitched Cannage Pattern, Its Golden Rings Connecting The Rectangular Body To The Arching Handles, And Its Dangling Gold Letters—In Tribute To Christian Dior’s Love Of Lucky Charms—Have Made It An Iconic Accessory Over The Past Twenty Years. Made Of Leather Or Exotic Skins, The Lady Dior’s Supreme Elegance And Couture Style Puts It In A Class Of Its Own.

Mythic And Modern, The Lady Dior Has Inspired Some Of The Greatest Artists Around The Globe. Photographers, Visual Artists, Video Artists, And Leading Film Directors Have Taken The Story Of The Mysterious Lady Dior To The Capital Cities Of The World. And Thus The Lady Dior Takes Its Rightful Place In The Cultural Heritage Of The House Of Dior. Before Becoming A Couturier, Christian Dior Was A Passionate And Knowledgeable Gallery Owner. In Paris, He Was The First To Show The Work Of Calder, Dalí, Miró And Giacometti, And Also Presented Works By Picasso, Dufy, Ernst And Klee. Gertrude Stein Was One Of His Biggest Clients. The Young Man Who Had Dreamed Of Going To Art School Remained Close To Artists Throughout His Life. This Fervent Love Of Art Is To Be Found At The Heart Of Monsieur Dior’s Designs And Those Of His Successors.

The Very Foundation Of The House Of Dior’s Core Identity, Now This Love Of Art Fuels A Vibrant Dialogue Between The Dior Icon That Is The Lady Dior And The Output Of Some Of The Most Talented Artists Working Today.

A Dedicated Exhibition Space On The 1st Floor At Iconsiam Will Showcase A Selection Of Artworks That Includes Photographs And Sculptures. Joining Internationally Renowned Artists Such As Olympia Scarry, Kohei Nawa, Ren Hwang, And Sophie Zenon, The Famed Thai Sculptor Rattana Salee And Photographer Kornkrit Jianpinidnan Will Be Showcasing Their “Lady Dior As Seen By” Pieces For The First Time. All These Exceptional Works Of Art Pay Tribute, Each In Their Own Unique Way, To A Dior Style Icon.
