Dior Cheri Bow Collection – Spring 2013

Limited-edition
Release Date: January 18, 2013
Availability: Nordstrom, Macy’s, Sephora

Company’s Description

Dressed with the bow that Christian Dior adored — a throwback to games of love and chance, feminine avatar of the bow tie and an homage to the ribbons worn by the Duchesse de Fontanges, the Chérie Bow collection unfurls…pretty as pink. The couturier found pink to be “the softest of colours”, the colour “of happiness and femininity”. He continually reinvented its hues, from tender ballerina to hot and shocking. Pink received its first couture initials: CD. With Chérie Bow, pink flirts with smoky black and anthracite grey…Pink, black, grey… The palette glows, the harmonies contrast against the skin.

Here is a sneak peek into Dior’s upcoming Cheri Bow Collection, which goes full-out on classic Spring shades. Keep reading for images and product information.
