Villa 88 Loves: Dior’s Rose Gold Capsule Is What Eid Dreams Are Made Of

Is Eid even Eid if you’re not dressed to the nines? Certainly not. Dior has given us good reason to spruce up this festive season with its new Rose Gold capsule, which is dedicated to the Middle East. Expect a delightful collection of evening-wear, accessories and shoes that evokes the picturesque beauty of colors beloved by Christian Dior, the Monsieur himself.

Maria Grazia Chiuri gives a nod to the House’s heritage by reinterpreting several symbolic pieces, including the iconic Lady Dior, 30 Montaigne and Dior Book Tote Bags, each an exquisite work of art. These have been transformed into new pieces that are embroidered with beads and crafted in metallic leather or with an iridescent sheen.

Think about delightful tulle dresses in pale blush, salmon-toned scarves, mules inscribed with the initials of the Maison’s founder, and rose-gold jewelry featuring his lucky star. A recurrent color tone is pink, Christian Dior’s beloved hue that he called “the softest of colors.”

In fact, in his Little Dictionary of Fashion, he wrote, “Every woman should have pink in her wardrobe. It’s the color of happiness and femininity.” Other pieces are adorned in metallic gray, which he loved for evoking “shades of a pearly sky.” Combine these pink and gray hues and they bring to mind the House’s haute couture elegance and the idyllic sight of Monsieur Dior’s childhood home in Granville, France.

Photographed for the first time in the United Arab Emirates, the campaign evokes the timeless charm of the country’s desert landscape and traditional clay walls. It’s where Arabian allure meets French flair, a delightful blend that you’re sure to relish this Eid.

The collection is available at the Dior pop-up online store and in Dior boutiques throughout the Middle East from May 2020. Visit and follow @Dior on Instagram.
