Dior never misses a trick to go back to its fashion roots, and these four 5 Couleur Palettes launching at the end of January are no exception. Each one is based on a colour inspired by Christian Dior’s first collections: I am instantly besotted by Royal Khaki (above) which first apppeared in the Dior fashion colour palette as a grand evening gown in 1947. 

Dior Rose Porcelein 5 Couleur Palette

Rose Porcelein symbolises Dior’s favourite shades of pink, Grege was introduced also in 1947 as a variation of white, brown or beige to go with each collection, with a further nuance of brown Terre de France in 1951. Bleu de Paris, possibly the most difficult one to wear because making blues look good on eyes is a skill I have yet to master, other than the darkest navy liners, plays on Dior’s tribute to Marie Antoinette.
