Paris Fashion Week: Adore Dior

So Paris Fashion Week is here and the big players in the fashion world are out in force, from Lanvin to Isabel Marant and my absolute favourite of all the shows this season, Christian Dior.  Even though it was spiked with controversy and drama, after all it was only a year since Galliano’s scandal and only the second ready-to-wear show with Bill Gaytten at the helm.  Still rumors circulate about who is linked with the infamous Dior job, will it be Stefano Pilati who has just left Yves Saint Laurent or Raf Simons who has just showed his last Jil Sander collection, watch this space!  Anyway, it looks like Gaytten will be going nowhere fast, as he created a dream like, refined and sophisticated collection for this legendary brand.

Wow, the show was just incredible, with lovely, delicate and ballet feminine colours, with cinched waists and splaying, thickly-pleated skirts.  It was pared down and gentle but very polished at the same time.  With shades from mauve through to red wine, powder pink and subtle greys it was just stunning and here at Butterfly Lane we adore a muted colour palette, not only for whimsical dresses but for our homes too. 

Now if I was a Dior dress I would like to sit in a living room of soft and feminine sophistication.  With a pared down colour palette of mauve through to dusky pinks, with hints of pale grey.  Romantic and elegant…

 …and a bedroom full of luxurious fabrics and soft shades of pinks and greys.

At Butterfly Lane we truly, madly, deeply love these romantic and luxurious rooms and how we love the soft, flowing fabrics and sparkling glassware.  Why not bring a bit of Dior styling in to your home this Spring  to give your home that Parisian je ne sais quoi.

Happy Shopping…X
