About This Book

A celebration of the home and inspirations of Christian Dior in Provence.
 
Provence will forever be intertwined with the story of Dior. It was here that Christian Dior chose to have his holiday home, La Colle Noire, where his passion for nature and botany flourished. The grounds of this sumptuous estate were ideal for cultivating flowers and the fragrant scents that inspired his couture and perfume creations. This book explores the beautiful gardens, breathtaking scenery, and rich history of La Colle Noire and its connections with the Dior family. It traces the transformation of the elegant and luxurious La Colle Noire and follows the footsteps of Monsieur Dior on his excursions to favorite destinations such as Saint-Tropez and Cannes, revealing the couturier's many haunts and inspirations in Provence.
 
Lavishly illustrated with never-before-seen photographs, archival documents, and watercolor renderings, this gorgeous volume pays homage to the abundant beauty of this magnificent region and chronicles its influence on the fabled house of Dior.
