Designed to resemble pleats in a skirt or dress, the skin draws references to Dior’s Japanese-inspired Spring Summer collection from 2007. At night, lights placed behind the slits in the facade emit a white glowBarbarito Bancel was mindful of the building’s retail function when designing the facade. The exterior is also meant to convey the defining qualities of the Dior brand, such as elegance, beauty and refinement, according to the design team.
