Silhouettes of the Caribbean: House of Dior pops up at Cheval Blanc St Barth’s

Guests at the hotel can now enjoy an up close and personal pick of the designer label’s sun-kissed Cruise 2022 collection.

The magnificent Cheval Blanc at St Barth Isle de France is the only resort in the Caribbean that’s tagged as a ‘palace’. Now adding to the grandeur of this beautiful beachfront resort on Flamands beach in the French West Indies, the House of Dior has brought in a pop-up store (if you can really call this little slice of heaven that!) to whet your fashion appetite.

The Ocean Suite and the pool at La Cabane now boast this boutique that celebrates the label’s Greece-inspired Cruise 2022 collection along with select Dioriviera pieces by Maria Grazia Chiuri.

This enchanting journey begins in a Dior oasis where parasols, lounge chairs and pergolas are dressed in Maria Grazia Chiuri’s reimagined toile de Jouy, while a private pool overlooking the ocean is also decorated with these iconic designs.

Up for grabs: The Dior Cruise 2022 collection

Luminous, sun-kissed, this exceptional setting presents the emblematic pieces of the Dior Cruise 2022 collection, such as the Book Tote or Caro bags, as well as the Dioriviera capsule, emblazoned with the season’s motifs and colors — pretty peony and cheery cornflower — which follow Fall’s luscious raspberry and a lively, limey chartreuse.

Also created by Chiuri, the cruise collection brings alive the eternal beauty of Greece. Even as the silhouettes have a resolutely contemporary sportswear style, the cuts are loose and supple, and the motifs are mixed and matched boldly. An enchanting modern mythology combining past and present.

They call it ‘an invitation to dreams and to escape, to look at the Dior bright side of life’. Why not, we ask, as anything cheerful is more than welcome, especially right now. Check in to Cheval Blanc St Barth’s before March 4 to enjoy this experience.
