Dior launches New Look make-up collection

In a first for the French luxury house, Dior's La Collection Privee fragrances and Dior Make-Up have launched a limited-edition collection in matching houndstooth print.

The New Look make-up collection is named after Christian Dior's seminal New Look fashion style which debuted in the 1940s, a hyper-curvaceous way of dressing that was christened after a Harper's Bazaar journalist exclaimed: "Your dresses have such a new look."

Among the silhouettes were black-and-white houndstooth suits, and the print went on to become a signature for the house.

From the case to the bottle, three fragrances - Gris Dior, Lucky and Jasmin des Anges ($195 to $395) - have been given a makeover and dressed in houndstooth checks. A Refillable Travel Spray Case ($160) in the same print lets you carry around your favourite scent.

For make-up, the popular Forever Couture Perfect Cushion ($105) and Rouge Dior lipstick ($69) in four finishes sport the graphic print on their casings. The lipstick bullets are also engraved with a houndstooth pattern.
