Here's a multi-national collaboration we can get behind: Dior has teamed up with artist Daniel Arsham to create three window installations—at the luxury house's New York City flagship (September 10th to 22nd), in Paris on Avenue Montaigne (September 20th to October 14th), and in Milan at Via Montenapoleone (September 20th to October 5th).
Inspired by the pleats of 1940s and 1950s Dior dresses, Arsham created fiberglass molded drapes that seem to float in the window space. In one window, Dior's house emblem, the medallion chair, appears draped in a white sheet that seems to be flying away. In the other window, a sheet appears to be draped over and flying off a mannequin.
