Dior CEO optimistic about label's growth and France's new direction

The Christian Dior haute couture show on Monday marked the historic French label's 70th anniversary, staged outside the Invalides museum in Paris and inspired by its founder's travels around the world.

"Christian Dior travelled across the world since 1947. This time we made the five continents come to Paris," Dior CEO and Chairman Sidney Toledano told Reuters after the show.

Christian Dior is one of the world's biggest and most famous fashion brands, worn by film legends from Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor to more recent stars such as Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman and singer Rihanna.

Maria Grazia Chiuri was named as its first female creative director in July 2016 as Dior sought to connect with younger consumers and boost sales hit by the global luxury spending downturn and growing appetite for smaller and more local brands.

Monday's show presented her second Haute Couture collection for Dior, which she joined from Valentino.

Toledano said his new creative director had attracted and younger clients from Asia, where demand for luxury goods is picking up, while retaining existing customers.

In France, he said, the election of President Emmanuel Macron is creating "greater confidence" and "an extremely positive spirit".

French consumers splurged on new cars, smartphones and perfumes in May, the month Macron won the presidency. Their increased willingness to spend bodes well for growth in the second quarter, national statistics institute ISEE said last week.

Like its peers LVMH, Gucci or Hermes , Dior is benefiting from higher spending in Asia and a return of tourists to Europe.

Toledano said sales growth at Christian Dior Haute Couture and Maison Christian Dior as a whole was in the double-digits in the fourth quarter of 2016 and the first quarter of 2017.

To celebrate its 70th anniversary, Christian Dior is also taking over Les Arts Decoratifs museum in Paris for a lavish retrospective from July 5 to Jan. 7, featuring over 300 dresses from the house founder and the six designers who succeeded him.

Christian Dior himself died in 1957, and the fashion house has since been headed by famous names including Yves Saint Laurent and John Galliano.

With nearly 200 stores in over 60 countries, Dior had 2016 sales of 1.94 billion euros. Its operating margin rose to 13.1 percent in 2016 from 12.8 pct in 2015.
