Dior Vernis 50th Anniversary
In 1962, Dior was the very first Couture House to launch its own brand name nail lacquer to match its already iconic lipsticks. A Dior slogan from the period captures the popularity of the new product: “Today, the four shimmering letters of Dior have come to the tips of your ten fingers.” In the 1970’s, Dior became a leading brand in terms of color range by launching forty matching nail and lipstick shades. And now, in 2012, Dior celebrates 50 years of nail lacquers that have since become stand alone fashion accessories. Inspired by a couture spirit, the Dior Vernis collection currently features 25 permanent shades, from the classic Red Royalty #999, the favorite color of Christian Dior, to the trendy Gris Montaigne #707, inspired by the Louis XVI-style chairs of the original Dior reception rooms on Avenue Montaigne. In addition, each Dior color collection features limited edition Vernis shades that instantly become the must-have accessory of the season.
