Haute Couture | Secret Garden, Dior

Dior's newest video is shot in the palace of Versailles, mostly in the beautiful Galerie des Glaces. The crème de la crème of French fashion showcased in the crème de la crème of French royal chateaux ; I imagine that Marie Antoinette would probably have approved !

The music is "Enjoy the Silence" by Depeche Mode, a British band whose name was taken from the French Fashion review « Dépêche Mode ». The review's name, which is a play on words, appealed to the group ; it means "fashion dispatch" but sounds similar to "fast fashion" ...Background info that makes the choice both appropriate and ironic !
