Traveling from a young age – that was an inspiration for a new Cordelia’s de Castellane Spring/Summer 2019 Collection. Wearing colorful pieces, the children join her to discover new horizons alongside Christian Dior. From India to Italy to Japan, this collection expresses the House’s heritage in the form of a story straight out of the imagination of the Baby Dior Creative Director.
The Journey starts in the land of the Arabian Nights, in the heart of a luxurious palace. From here, Cordelia de Castellane took silk, twinkling tulle and created uid dresses of Persian red, ivory and gold.
After that kids move to Pondicherry. Tiger and elephant patches, sacred animal in India, as well as clocks, in a nod to the story’s magic watch, appear here and there on boys’ clothes. At the same time, the girls glow in their Indian pink and saffron dresses, or in safari jackets ideal for their desert excursion.
Moving on, kids arrive to the Land of the Rising Sun, the young troop gets lost into Tokyo. Pleated skirts and cherry blossom fabrics, inspired by Japanese school uniforms and mangas, transform the girls into model students. For the boys, it’s all about denim. In indigo or gray, as a jacket with a detachable fur lining or as pants, it provides comfort and freedom of movement.
On bikes or skateboards, the team is now heading down California’s grand boulevards. Pastel colors, embroidered rainbows and sparkling poplin reminds a youthful feelings of United States. The girls, in sequined blousons, walk along by the palm tree-bordered ocean.
Everything has an end, this travel finishes on a sunny afternoon in Naples. The young adventurers laze in dresses and jumpsuits with precious embroidery.
