Dior Golden Jungle Collection for Fall 2012
In February 1947, Christian Dior presented his first collection to the international press in the Dior salons of Avenue Montaigne in Paris. Along with the Huit and Corolle lines that would inaugurate the era of “The New Look,” the couturier revealed another of his favourite themes: Leopard Print. Fashion editors were smitten, the room burst into applause and women rediscovered the mysterious allure of this iconic, timeless print.
At once avant-garde, sophisticated and sensual, the Jungle Motif has been a signature of the House of Dior from its debut. Actress Marlene Dietrich and the muse and friend of Mr. Dior, Mitzah Bircard, were its first fervent ambassadors. With each decade and runway show, variations of leopard print are cleverly reinterpreted by Dior COuture.
In the Dior Autumn/Winter 2012 makeup collection, Tyen revamps the Jungle Motif with another hallmark of Dior, a touch of shimmering gold, embodying the luxury of the urban jungle and inspired by the deep, earthy tones of the jungle.

Dior Summer Mix Collection for Summer 2012
Introducing Summer Mix, a charming new color collection that captures the carefree spirit of summer with four infectiously fun shades of new Dior Vernis Nail Gloss and two shades of Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss.
In 1962, Dior was the very first Couture House to launch its own brand name nail lacquer to match its already iconic lipsticks. A Dior slogan from the period captures the popularity of the new product: “Today, the four shimmering letters of Dior have come to the tips of your ten fingers.” In the 1970’s, Dior became a leading brand in terms of color range by launching forty matching nail and lipstick shades. And now, in 2012, Dior celebrates 50 years of nail lacquers that have since become stand alone fashion accessories. Inspired by a couture spirit, the Dior Vernis collection currently features 25 permanent shades, from the classic Red Royalty #999, the favorite color of Christian Dior, to the trendy Gris Montaigne #707, inspired by the Louis XVI-style chairs of the original Dior reception rooms on Avenue Montaigne. In addition, each Dior color collection features limited edition Vernis shades that instantly become the must-have accessory of the season.
