The mummified heart is said to be that of vampire Auguste Delagrance, responsible for the deaths of more than forty people back in the 1900, a period of vampirism in the USA. When he was identified, Delagrance was hunted down by a Romano Catholic priest and a Voodoo Hougan, and was destroyed in 1912. (x)
Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall 2014
It’s no secret that Raf Simons loves flowers. For his debut couture collection at Dior in 2012, the designer commissioned wall installations that contained more than a million flowers, including roses, peonies and dahlias, that took workers four days to assemble. Then at the spring 2014 show, models walked the runway underneath an exotic hanging garden at the Musée Rodin.
This week the museum was once again transformed for Dior’s fall couture collection, where attendees were treated to walls lined with 150,000 white orchids. The designer teamed up with Mark Colle, an Antwerp-based florist and longtime collaborator of Simons, to create the enchanting set.
"The idea was to create transparency," Colle said. "Something very light. The use of phalaenopsis orchids was perfect in this particular setting—they have a feminine feel yet there is something alien and futuristic about them (which is also the reason why I enjoy working with them so much). Rather then having them hanging from the walls in a garden type of way, I thought it would be more interesting to have them go many different directions, as if they were an army of white spiders spreading out over the mirrored walls."
Of course, Simons isn’t alone in his affinity for flora. Christian Dior himself was an avid gardener and horticulturist, with the rose being his favorite flower. At his very first couture show in 1947, Dior decorated the show space with blue delphiniums, pink sweet peas and white lily of the valley. So not only are Simons’ grand sets immaculate and beautiful, but they also serve as a nice homage to the designer and the house of Dior.
