Fashion in society & minds by the Boulevardiers
Dior had an original idea to celebrate the French worker’s day: revealing the Dior “Muguet” Dress, as “one of Monsieur Dior’s favourite flowers, the Lily of the Valley, traditionally brings good luck in France on May 1st“.
As explained on Dior Mag,Lily of the Valley “was Christian Dior’s favorite flower, as much for its symbolism as its aesthetic. Superstitious to the last, the couturier used to have sprigs of it sewn into the linings of his dresses for luck on the day of a show. In incarnations couture, printed, embroidered or woven, it was an all-seasons flower, giving its name to certain looks and was the central theme of the spring-summer 1954 collection. Muguet de maiwas a lingerie ensemble from 1949 and, from organdy evening dresses to sable wrap jackets, many looks, both winter and summer, were named for the couturier’s emblematic bloom. Two years after the Muguet collection of 1954, the flower became a perfume: Diorissimo “.
