Dior inaugurated a brand new boutique in China at the end of December 2015. Located in the heart of the Beijing central business district in the China World mall, the boutique joins a network of 20 plus stores in the country.
Designed by American architect Peter Marino, the two-level store reflects the timeless elegance of Dior, with a double-layer glass façade that emulates the iconic “cannage” motif of the couture house. Inside, the refined atmosphere is enhanced by wall art and designer pieces, part of a curated selection of a dozen contemporary art pieces.
To celebrate the opening of the Dior Beijing China World flagship, the House presented its Spring-Summer 2016 collection at a runway show in a sumptuous blue-hued setting at the Phoenix Center. The show was attended by Christian Dior Couture CEO Sydney Toledano and A-list Chinese celebrities and artists..
