Inspired by Panier Percé, a design by Christian Dior from the haute couture spring-summer 1950 collection, this dress takes the form of a cage, a recurring motif in the Surrealists’ creative output. It was made in the ateliers of Jean-Pierre Ollier.
For the triple organza dresses, L’impératrice and Chant à la Lune, the tarot motifs, loved by both Christian Dior and Maria Grazia Chiuri, were painted by hand in varying tones of black and white before being re-embroidered with sequins. It was made in the ateliers of Jean-Pierre Ollier.
Painted by hand on organza in beige, green, pink and blue, and then embroidered and pleated, the Songe dress references dreams, a central theme of the Surrealist movement.
