An odyssey through the enduring House of Dior, this exhibition begins where it must, in 1947, with Christian Dior’s spectacular first collection, Corolle. Catching the moment—the war over and life opening like a rose—Dior reigned supreme for 10 years, until his untimely death in 1957. In unbroken continuity, six succeeding couturiers have sustained and updated Dior’s romantic vision of refinement. Saint Laurent, Bohan, Ferré, Galliano, Simons, and, now, Chiuri—they’re all here. This exhibition is not to be missed. Look for its “colorama” display of Dior accessories—outrageous eye candy! —L.J.
