New to the family: The slender and seductive Dioressence comes to life
Artist Ignasi Monreal encapsulates the elegance of the Dioressence with his digital paintbrush

Dior has always excelled in underscoring the feminity of women with the tasteful sensibilities and discete beauty of its designs, and the latest stiletto from the French luxury house is no exception. Distinct with its sculptural, leather heel and elongated front, the unassuming addition to the brand's footwear collection turns on its seductive wiles when worn — the gentle contours of a woman's leg takes centre stage, amplified by the Dioressence's lush curves. 

Crafted in Italy — the locus of shoemaking with an unparalleled calibre — in the maison's signature hues (black and pale pink) and an array of classic shades, think of the stiletto as an investment with guaranteed returns — that is, pulling together and elevating any ensemble. As Christian Dior so famously declared, "A touch of color can be enough to change your appearance. Heels go with everything."


In commemoration of the latest member to the Dior family, see the stiletto's quiet beauty transposed in digital watercolours by artist Ignasi Monreal, and the transformative magic of the shoe as captured by photographer Marton Perlaki.
