And the doors to Dior open at Harrods! The store’s fourth floor as well as window displays has been given a complete Dior-istic makeover. London’s department store is celebrating the House of Dior and hosting a pop-up store along with ‘So Dior’ exhibition and a Dior Café. The luxury fashion house artistically brings the iconic London Eye and Tower Bridge in to the windows at Harrods. Step in to find the Royal Mail postboxes that hold the limited-edition products displayed at the ground floor pop-up boutique which sports Dior’s signature shade of grey.
The stairs lead the visitors to fourth floor where the façade of 30 avenue Montaigne, the famous Parisian headquarters, is recreated in miniature.
Fans can know more about the fashion house via the interactive digital book that tells the history of the house of Dior.
