Dior opens its first Canadian flagship store in the Fairmont Hotel in Vancouver. Doors opened on July 14th, exposing the beautiful décor of the two-story boutique inspired by concept of the original flagship store in Paris. The first floor is filled with luxury handbags and fine jewelry, while the second floor is reserved exclusively for Dior ready-to-wear, evening wear, and shoes. Dior Homme will also open doors alongside the women’s boutique on July 14th. Dior and Dior Homme have separate entrances but are connected on the inside allowing customers to freely roam between the two boutiques. Dior appointed many contemporary artists to decorate the walls of this new flagship. The most intriguing piece is the zodiac shaped lighting in the jewelry section of the store, designed to represent Mr. Christian Dior’s own sign, Aquarius. As most fashionistas may be aware, prior to the store's opening Dior women’s handbags and shoes were available at select Holt Renfrew Stores in Canada. This will be the first time that the full line of Dior products will be readily available for customers in Canada.
