The Musée Christian Dior is celebrating its 20th anniversary, but the building has been integral to Dior’s history for much longer than that—it was Christian Dior’s childhood home.
Granville, which is located in Normandy, is not only celebrating it’s anniversary as a museum, but will also pay tribute to the 70th anniversary of the house of Dior with a new exhibit titled Christian Dior and Granville: The Source of the Legend.
Fans may remember Granville from the documentary Dior and I, wherein Raf Simons travelled to the historic home to get inspiration for his first collection for the storied French brand. Granville heavily influenced Christian Dior, and subsequently, his successors. “What can I say?” He wrote in his memoirs, “My life, my style owe almost everything to its location and its architecture.”
