Dior has unveiled a new scarf collection named after Mitzah Bricard, the couturier’s original 1940s muse. The dimensions of the latest Dior scarf, the Mitzah, mean it can worn in as many ways are there are feminine personalities. Take a look.
“The scarf is to a woman what the tie is to a man, and the manner in which it’s tied expresses your personality,” wrote Christian Dior in his Little Dictionary of Fashion. This scarf with a medley of ways to wear it – hair, neck, wrist – carries the name of the founding couturier’s muse, Mitzah Bricard. She was known for her habit of wearing a panther-print scarf around her wrist.
This unique marker and Mitzah’s own feline beauty gave rise to the leopard motif of the Jungle look in the historic show of 1947. As a result, the animalistic theme became one of the House codes. Today, the Mitzah reinterprets that inspiring woman’s signature motif, as well as taking on the highly contemporary, skate culture-referencing ones that brightened the cruise 2016 collection by Raf Simons. It comes presented in a round box whose transparent cover allows for a view of the Mitzah in all its delicate beauty.
