Secret Garden - Versailles By Dior

Photography duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin has been the one in charge of giving shape to the new video presentation of next Fall/Winter collection by Maison Dior, named Secret Garden and shot in the representative Palace of Versailles, in Parins.
It's not easy to avoid carefully analyzing all the messages sent by the house of Dior after this stormy period of speculations and silence, broken -at last- a month ago with the confirmation of Raf Simons as the new creative director, after John Galliano's departure.
It is a fact that the Palace of Versailles has been intrinsically linked to the House since its early beginnings -as a source of inspiration, as the ideal location or even to name its desings after some of its different areas; however, in this moment of changes and fresh air that is supposed to arrive soon it seems even funny to find a wink in the musical selection of the video. Choosing Enjoy the Silence, by Depeche Mode, after a long period of such about its new direction seems, at least, kind of symbolic.
