The Dior Fall/Winter 2013 collection comes to life within the walls of the Château de Versailles.
Once home to Europe’s most powerful royal family, Versailles has maintained its element of mystery and secrecy over the centuries. This season, Dior tells its own tale of Versailles in a video shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
Fog is cast over the château, adding to the air of mystery as model Daria Strokous runs through the grounds clad in some of the brand’s most iconic pieces for Fall 2013. She laughs, almost wickedly, and then looks around, as if lost, adding to the wonderfully unsettling feeling we experience. As night falls, she swings from a tree, surrounded by flower-women and burning candelabras, and one can’t help but draw a parallel to Marie Antoinette’s colorful and extravagant parties in the very same gardens. Watch the video exclusive above and enter the wonderful world of Dior.
