HAPPY MAY DAY! | BUON PRIMO MAGGIO!
We would like to welcome May with an ideal escapade at Granville, chez Monsieur Dior and his fabulous scented garden , full of roses, forget-me-not and, of course, lilies-of-valley…
Enjoy this métissage dedicated to a legendary coutourier: an artist IS always his/her oeuvre.
