Dior Cruise 2017 at Blenheim Palace.

On Tuesday 31st May 2017, Parisian brand Christian Dior showed its newest cruise collection within the library rooms at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, England. Dior is only one of the European luxury brands that are taking up an obsession with England at the moment. The other is Gucci, who will be showing their collection within Westminster Abbey on Thursday.  

This year Christian Dior Cruise show marked the third time that Blenheim played host to the designer. In 1958, Yves Saint Laurent showed his Dior collection at the palace and before him in 1954, Christian Dior himself showcased.

Guests of the show included Alexa Chung and Bianca Jagger. Guests were transported to the show via a special Dior train.

The catwalk was hand-painted and showed an english a hunt. This went well with the collection as the general theme was English countryside, but done with a classic Dior “Parisian twist”.

Equestrian scenes were knitted into jackets with English country florals.

The collection also featured embellishment, mixed in with the brand’s iconic Bar jacket. 

Equestrian silk scarves were also contrasted against leather smock dresses. 

The models sported a very dark, statement smokey eye and slicked back hair. Shop Dior Beauty here to get the look. 

We are excited to see if Gucci are on the same wavelength as Dior, regarding the nod to equestrian. Gucci originally was an equestrian brand. Ever notice the Gucci horse-bit?
