I’m not sure what the inspiration behind this colour is (it might be the Grand Trianon at the Palace of Versailles) but I couldn’t help but be drawn to its understated beauty.
Trianon grey, blue grey, pearl grey, steel grey, beige grey…In his first collection for the House of Dior, Raf Simons pays tribute to the Dior grey that Christian Dior transformed into a luminous colour in his time.
Dior does greys so well that it even has its own lexicon of this hue that ranges from deeply stormy to lightly misty.
Described by the brand as a soft dove grey crème, Gris Trianon occupies the realm between the two extremes, yet has the ability to look like a deeper cement grey in lowlight and a barley-taupe in brighter lighting. I’m not only in love with the colour, I also love its opaque creaminess that’s a breeze to apply with the classic wide Dior brush.
Part of the Dior Chérie Bow Spring 2013 collection, this lovely lacquer retails at S$37.
