Welcome to the new series Dior Talks, themed around the 5th edition of Dior Lady Art.
In this introductory episode, we’re going back in time to share how the Lady Dior saga began, with a brief history of the icon. Before meeting this year’s artists, we invite you to (re)discover the legacy of the Lady Dior, the quintessence of the Dior spirit.
All icons have an extraordinary backstory, and the Lady Dior is no exception. A timeless icon and a celebration of multifaceted femininity, the Lady Dior is a constant in the Dior collections, and is endlessly reinvented anew.
Now in its fifth edition, the Dior Lady Art project has seen the bag deconstructed, reinvented and immortalized through a series of limited, collector’s editions reinterpreted, as ever, by a diverse roster of international talents. In 2020, ten contemporary artists and collectives were invited to put their creative stamp on the Lady Dior, approaching the iconic bag like a unique work of art.
Joining Judy Chicago - the godmother of feminist art, who already collaborated with Dior on the installation “The Female Divine” for the set for the House’s Spring-Summer 2020 Haute Couture show - are Joël Andrianomearisoa, Gisela Colón, Song Dong, Bharti Kher, Mai-Thu Perret, Recycle Group, Chris Soal, Claire Tabouret, and Olga Titus.
Listen as each of these artists shares their personal experience of transforming the Lady Dior in the latest edition of the Dior Talks podcast series, available on all platforms.
