Two years after undergoing renovation, Dior has re-opened their Paris flagship boutique located at 30 Avenue Montaigne. The boutique, which first opened its doors in 1946 has housed the luxury fashion house’s collections for seventy-five years. The updated location now spans 10,000 square meters and features Dior’s endless ready-to-wear, fragrance, leather goods, and accessories lines.

In a press statement to V, Christian Dior Couture Chairman and CEO Pietro Beccari expresses his sentiments about the grand re-opening. “I am extremely pleased and proud to see this extraordinary dream, this outstanding project – which my team and I have carried with all our passion – finally come true. More than a reopening, 30 Montaigne is a total reinvention and a living symbol of our DNA: the birth of a realm like no other in the world, where dreams are given free reign and a new, unprecedented page in the history of Dior, fashion – and Paris – can be written.”
