An Adventure at 30 Montaigne

By August 23, 20232 Comments

Back in February, while I was in Paris, I was able to spend a whole day at the Dior flagship store. How can one spend a day in a single store? Oh so easily when it is Dior on the famous Avenue Montaigne in Paris! And store, what a lacklustre word that is…

The flagship Dior store is so much more than that – it is a magical experience. I did not want to leave!

Approaching this historic 19th century building gives me goosebumps! The flagship store is the largest Dior store in the world and also home to Le Galerie Dior – a permanent exhibition of the Monsieur Dior’s designs which includes the original offices of the maison. It is an unimaginable delight to step inside his world!

How stunning is the facade?!

The Dior flagship spent two years under renovation and it was worth the wait! I am lucky enough that this was my second visit, but it did not stop me from spending the whole day lost amidst the elegance and charm that is Dior – further exploring and discovering something new every time I visit.

There were incredible installations of previous Dior pieces that decorate the staircase which is always changing. The entire building plays homage to Monsieur Dior in such a breathtaking way I cannot help but feel inspired!

Stopping at the new pastry café – La Pâtisserie Dior – was the perfect end to the day. The gorgeous open space overlooks a blossoming rose garden which is the perfect view when sipping on an afternoon coffee and enjoying the sweetest of treats with stunning Dior designs.

A little treat from the café to enjoy back at the hotel!
