All about that waist
Sweet (hounds) tooth
All this Dior talk may ring a bell: the exhibition did run in Paris last year, but the London version will also explore Dior’s relationship with Britain. The designer adored British culture and often used heritage fabrics in his collections. He was particularly fond of houndstooth – in fact, he liked it so much that in 1950 he began decorating the packaging of his first fragrance, Miss Dior, with the pattern. These days, houndstooth tailoring is still a super-sophisticated choice and will turn your winter look up a notch in a flash.
