Getting One's Foot in the Dior

Christian Dior in Highland Park Village

This spring, even the most high-minded individual will likely set her sights on something a bit more grounded: the acquisition of mirrored leather slingbacks from Christian Dior. On March 21, we intend to dive feet first into Texas’ first freestanding Dior boutique, opening in Highland Park Village. Expect handbags, accessories and, the pièce de résistance, the much-ballyhooed debut ready-to-wear collection from new creative director Raf Simons, who famously replaced John Galliano. For spring, Simons tossed out 21st-century glamour like so many shiny coins … guipure-lace bustier minis, balloon floral duchesse satin gowns and rigorous Le Smoking suitings. The famous foggy-gray Dior hue envelops the elegant interior, which is modeled after the refurbished Paris boutique at 30 avenue Montaigne — the very same space occupied by Monsieur Dior when he opened his namesake house in 1946 and set the world on fashion fire. 12 Highland Park Village, 214.520.6494;
