Dior Spring 2012 Garden Party Color Collection Preview and Photos

After Women, flowers are the most heavenly creation.” – Christian Dior

Christian Dior grew up in Granville, on the cliffs of Normandy, in a house buffeted by strong winds, and seemingly unsuited to the creation of a garden. However, the young man’s creative strength and relentless hard work defied nature, and today one can still admire the garden in bloom and in particular, the fantastic rose garden planted with his own hands.

Christian Dior also loved the excitement of parties, and often hosted the aptly named “Grand Balls of the Century” with enchanted beauties from the Normandy coast and Paris alike. The theme of the festive garden is still alive today throughout many Dior creations. The Dior spring color collection is inspired by Dior’s fantastic garden.


Dior Garden Clutch ($75)

The clutch is reinvented in with the Garden Party spirit in mind. Featuring a glossy light pink leather-like shell, adorned with a woven pattern & sealed by a “Rosebud” clasp and makeup must-haves for eyes and lips. Inside is a trio of delicate rose-embossed eye shadows, one shade of Dior Ultra-Gloss and one Lip Maximizer.

Available in two color harmonies:

Dior Garden Clutch in Milly Garden #001 (Nordstrom & Dior.com Exclusive)

Dior 5-Couleurs Garden Edition ($59)

These two limited edition 5-Couleurs Eyeshadows are embossed with a floral pattern inspired by embroidered designs on delicate tulle.

    Wow, Spring 2012! Time flys by so quick. I want both polishes. They look so dreamy.

      Dior’s Spring 2012 is really interesting with all the flowery colors and such.

    OMG! Those are so gorgeous!!! I’m going to have to get it! Somehow I think that the colors in the clutch will not be very pigmented so I don’t know…so pretty though! I really, really love the 5-Couleurs “Garden Roses”. Have to remember about it so that I don’t miss out on getting it.

    Thanks for sharing!

      If I ever get a chance to swatch these you will know how pigmented they are.

    Dior does it again. I want everything. I shudder to think what next year’s limited edition numbered palette will be if this is just their spring offering.

    • admin October 21, 2011 at 4:34 AM

      Hmm… maybe next year’s limited edition palette will be a bit high tech? I hope it’s something breakthrough.

      • Ardelia October 21, 2011 at 11:13 AM

        Speaking of high tech, have you seen the Dior Games Youtube video? I’m wondering what they’ll take inspiration from or if they’ll follow up on this rose theme?

        • admin October 22, 2011 at 5:04 AM

          I’ve seen the videos depicting the games before. We just need to wait about the inspiration.

    Ah~ so beautiful indeed! i want one of the palettes, NEED to decide which one to get 😀

    • admin October 21, 2011 at 4:34 AM

      Get them all!

  5. Jamilla October 20, 2011 at 9:30 PM

    For some reason, this collection doesn’t do anything for me…maybe it’s the pastel overload, I don’t know!

    • admin October 21, 2011 at 4:35 AM

      Jamilla, you probably need to see it in front of you to really decide. Sometimes, I don’t like what I see on the computer but when I am at the store I buy it. It really all depends.

    The clutches look amazing. They incorporated some of the blue-tie elements inside. When do you think this will come out?

    • admin October 21, 2011 at 4:35 AM

      Spring 2012 probably February or March.

  7. Gee October 21, 2011 at 2:54 AM

        • admin October 22, 2011 at 5:02 AM

          We just need to wait for Chanel to put out what they are going to do.
