The house of Dior is having a very busy moment in the U.S. Earlier this week, Maria Grazia Chiuri was in New York to speak at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund dinner. Next week the brand hosts the two-day Guggenheim International Gala and pre-party in New York, and in between Dior opened its women’s boutique in Chicago on Nov. 10, the same day Victoire de Castellane was in New York for a rare U.S. preview of her haute joaillerie collection that is typically presented in Paris. (It will still be presented in the French capital in January.)
The collection is the third and final installment in her Versailles-inspired triptych, this edition called Dior à Versailles, Pièces Secrètes. She followed the Versailles by Night and Versailles Gardens collections with an enchanting and tad macabre imagining of mysteries that occur behind the palace’s closed doors.

Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business.
