MILAN — A few days after the successful and acclaimed debut of Raf Simons as creative director of Christian Dior, the French luxury fashion house unveiled its newly renovated and expanded boutique on Milan’s Via Montenapoleone. The opening was marked by an event to celebrate the “Lady Dior As Seen By” exhibition at the city’s Triennale museum, which, after stops in Shanghai, Beijing and Tokyo, is joined by a project with the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera.
“This is a key moment,” said Dior’s chief executive officer Sidney Toledano, sitting in the store’s VIP room, opposite a Martin Kline sculpture and a Paul Evans table, clearly pleased with the results of 18 months of work at the venue, conceived by architect Peter Marino.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
