The Making of Dior’s Jardin d’Hiver embroidery Dior Book Tote

Lindsay Judge   |   29-08-2022

As part of the Dior Fall/Winter 2022-23 collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri has created a delicate pattern depicting plants, flowers and birds, inspired by a photograph of Christian Dior in his winter garden by Mark Shaw.


The feminine d’Hiver embroidery has been applied to the Dior Book Tote for the upcoming season, inspired by Monsieur Dior’s love of gardens and flowers.



Chiuri plays homage to this part of the House’s heritage, combined with the finest craftsmanship needed to recreate this ornate floral pattern.




Created with a palette of over twenty different colours, this mesmerizing illustration is meticulously embroidered on the iconic Dior Book Tote, crafted in Italy by virtuoso artisans.



They assemble the different parts of the bag by hand, giving life to an exceptional piece, a symbol of the Dior spirit, an ode to the art of detail.



Through this collection, Chiuri pages homage to bygone times woven into the materials and forms of today through the historical art of embroidery.


The Dior Book Tote Jardin d’Hiver embroidery edition will be available throughout the fall.
