Baby Dior Unveils Spring-Summer 2019 Collection

So what does Baby Dior have in store for us come Spring-Summer 2019? A journey to the four corners of the world, worthy of Christian Dior’s recurrent desire to travel. And so, Cordelia de Castellane, Baby Dior’s Creative Director, thought back to the very first time a fortune teller told Christian Dior “You will have to travel widely”. Because widely he did.

The collection takes part of a charming story spanning from India, to Italy and Japan, presenting the House’s heritage with de Castellane’s vivid imagination. The journey kick-starts in the land of the Arabian Nights and more specifically in a majestic palace, where silk and twinkling tulle come together to create fluid dresses of Persian red, ivory and gold. The saga resumes in Pondicherry, where boys get all dressed up in pieces featuring tiger and elephant patches, sacred animals in India, as well as clocks, while girls glow in their Indian pink and saffron dresses and safari jackets. Along comes the Land of the Rising Sun, at the heart of Tokyo. Little girlies shine in pleated skirts and cherry blossom fabrics, inspired by Japanese school uniforms and boys revel in denim. Next stop, the US’ grand boulevards in bikes and skateboards. The dress code? Sequined blousons, pastel colors and embroidered rainbows that recall Californian vibes. The voyage ends in Naples, where our young adventurers stroll around in dresses and jumpsuits with precious embroidery.

Tips to Protect Your Little Ones from the Sun

When summer starts, it’s only natural for kids to go out to play under the stinging rays of the sun. And since our kids are more vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays than us, here are some precautions to take before they run free in the beautiful sunny outdoors.

First, your kids need sunblock not sunscreen, as the latter contains one too many chemicals for their age. In fact, sunblock should be used for your kids until they reach the age of 5 if not more.

Besides that, your 6-month old should not be left outdoors with uncovered legs and arms. So if it’s really necessary to go outside, make sure to dress your kid in long-sleeves and pants in order to protect them from UV rays. With this in mind, you can opt for clothing and hats with UV protection especially if you’re about to spend a lot of time outside.

Last but not least, make sure to provide your little ones with a lot of fluids while they’re spending their time in the sun. This will definitely protect them from getting dehydrated and keep them refreshed.

Now that we have provided you with some useful tips, we want to wish you a happy summer!

Every woman loves jewelry and as a jewelry lover yourself, you won’t be in shock when your little daughter comes to you to ask for a pair of earrings to wear. In fact, every girl sees in her mother a role model and does all that it takes to look just like her. This shouldn’t worry you but to the contrary, it must make you the happiest and proudest mama on earth!

If you were wishing to make your daughter’s dream come true by treating her to a few jewelry pieces, the task might be a hassle because we all know how difficult it is to find jewelry especially designed for kids. Therefore, letting her borrow some pieces from your own jewelry box will definitely make her the most joyful little girl in the world.

But this dictates a few important rules that we will tell you about. First, you should take into consideration that the earrings should be studs or small hoops that won’t hurt her tiny ears. Second, limit her choices to the simplest pieces in your jewelry box in order to avoid her looking like a little woman – at the end of the day, her age should be the main factor affecting the choice and this what will make her look like a chic little princess.

Want some inspiration? Check out below our edit of the simplest ear studs out there.

Baby Dior Unveils Exclusive Capsule Collection for Dubai

Remember Dior’s Haute Couture show in Dubai? Well just as it seems, the enchantment has continued with a Baby Dior capsule collection inspired by the circus, created by none other than Cordelia de Castellane.

Indeed, the special collection features a layette and seven exclusive dresses for little girls – all of which evoke the charm of the Orient, from its immaculate desert to the starry sky and the fabulous takes in One Thousand and One Nights. Produced especially for Dubai, the collection reveals an imaginative and revisited take on the magic of the circus, and presents pieces that shine with the beauty of light and enchanting dresses in organza or tulle. That said, the pieces sparkle with sequins and come in a celestial palette of pink, white, ivory or a tie-dye in subtle blues.

The ensembles are reminiscent of characters from the circus – from trapeze artists to true magicians of the air, or Pierrot and Harlequin costumes – and are embellished with motifs of sparkly shooting stars, also known as the House’s signature good-luck charm.

It’s in that spirit that Dior’s savoir-faire brings together the joys of Haute Couture with the magical kingdom of dreams to present an exceptional collection like no other.
