While dining out might not be an option for the foreseeable, staying at home has never looked more stylish.
Dior Maison's latest tableware collection Copacabana is perfectly timed, adding some needed cheer and pizazz to the dinner table, whether you’re dining alone, hosting a virtual dinner party or simply thinking ahead to more sociable times.
Inspired by Christian Dior’s fascination for the flora, fauna, vivid colours and general joie de vivre of Brazil, the Dior Copacabana collection features nautical-inspired plates, place mats, table linens and glassware, all emblazoned with fish, starfish, coral, botanicals and delicate seaweed motifs in bright, radiant colours.
Lightweight and colourful marine algae, fish and coral adorn pretty plates while woven raffia placemats feature colourful shell and seaweed embroidery.
Table linen is also adorned with marine plants.
The range spills over into home accessories, including candlesticks, spice boxes, earthenware, incense burners, vases, frames and garden lanterns, perfect for spicing up the home for summer.
Vases, decorative baubles and glass boxes are made to resemble aquariums, with suspended floating fish and delicate coral.
The covetable homeware range was created by Dior's creative director Cordelia de Castellane, and perfectly captures the sun-saturated energy of Brazil, making us dream of exotic, far-flung beaches. The designs pays tribute to the founding couturier’s fascination with the vivacious beach life of Brazil.
Christian Dior often visited Brazil and his love for the tropical country was made apparent in the colours and patterns of dresses that captured the lively and joie de vivre moments of the tropics – flaunted by models in Sao Paulo, Brazil and the parties of the day in Rio.
And the fashion designer was all about bringing personal passions home, and celebrating those passions in your own space. In the couturier's own words, 'living in a house which doesn’t reflect who you are is like wearing someone else’s clothes.'
We think he would very much approve of these vivacious, colourful and energetic homeware designs.
The collection is available to buy on Dior.com, as well as the boutique on New Bond Street and concession at Harrods when they re-open.
