If you are going to be in London from between 16 March and 14 April 2013, I would like to suggest you head directly to Harrods as soon as you drop your luggage at the hotel. Or better yet, hail a cab from Heathrow and head straight to this icon in Knightsbridge.
Because while there are pop-ups/collabs, the one that Dior is setting up in Harrods is so massive they are calling it a takeover, from the window displays swathed in Dior’s signature grey and white to part of the fourth floor featuring a reconstruction of the facade of 30 Avenue Montaigne, the French house’s beloved headquarters in Paris.
You’ll see mini exhibitions, you’ll see wonderful displays, but what I’ll be missing the most is not being able to see the specially created limited edition Dior At Harrods collection, which includes amongst other bags and SLGs, this Lady Dior (shown above) with tartan-covered handles that’s simply too gorgeous for words.
What I really want, however, is this snow globe, which will look really pretty sitting beside my Karl Lagerfeld (from Sephora) and Chanel ones. Featuring the enigmatic Dior woman with the Lady Dior, she stands beside the Harrods bear as it’s seated on a chair, looking adorable.
