The 69th edition of the Festival de Cannes will begin May 11, 2016, a date when the city takes its place as the epicenter of international cinema. To mark the occasion, the house of Dior will open a new boutique in Cannes at 7 Boulevard de la Croisette.
The women’s and men’s leathergoods, timepieces, jewelry, ready-to-wear and footwear collections will be spread over the three-floor location. Among the artworks to be found accompanying the collections will be a circular banquette topped with a majestic bouquet of flowers by Claude Lalanne, armchairs by Russell Woodard, lamps designed by Wouter Hoste, and an animated mural by Oyoram. The Cannes boutique’s gray and white color scheme and neo-Louis XVI medallion-back chairs transpose the hushed and intimate atmosphere of the historic address of 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris.
