30 Fashion Notes By Steven Hempel T he little black dress. The perfect garment for almost any occasion. As Christian Dior said in the Little Dictionary of Fashion, "I could write a whole book on black." Indeed. This staple of our palette is often less dramatic than white yet can evoke feelings from severity to understated grace. Such is the versatility and timelessness of the latest timepiece from Dior. Dior's classic La D de Dior watch has a new look. Imagined by Victoire de Castellane as a new chapter in the history of the timepiece, the La D de Dior Black Ultramatte is a perfect complement to be dressed up or down, happy to be the center of attention yet just as content to perfectly blend. Just look at it … La D de Dior Black Ultramatte $4,800 to $7,500, at the Dior boutique, 800.929.DIOR. Along for the Ride What's in a Name? U nexpectedly sensual, floral and feminine … Yes, we have something to discuss. Paradoxe, Prada's latest perfume offering, is a blend of jasmine, neroli, and amber. Contrasting the crisp, fresh dimensions of the flower with the woody notes delivered by amber, it's perfect for the cool, crisp days we've waited all year for. Developed by master perfumers Nadège Le Garlantezec, Shyamala Maisondieu, and Antoine Maisondieu in collaboration with Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, the fragrance maintains the house's innovative heart while capturing the timeless sensory qualities that all great scents must have. Its campaign, featuring Emma Watson — who both directed and starred in the short — finds her living the life we all hope to enjoy: Free to explore, live and love. Is this the paradox? Prada Paradoxe, $87 to $142 at the Prada boutique, Paint it Black Bois Dormant H ark. Another has come. Bois Dormant is the 11th in Celine's Haute P a r f u m e r i e s e r i e s , preceded by nine scents that accompanied the 2019 launch of the collection and Rimbaud, the 10th, which debuted in 2021. This 11th addition draws inspiration from Hedi Slimane's olfactory journal, peering back at days of old — an evocation of youth, passion and aspiration. It's the warmth of English flannel, the lightness of movement, the layered sensations of vinyl and velvet. It's woody, carrying notes of cedar and vetiver, yet discrete, with a finish of bergamot and juniper. In living color or in black and white, it doesn't matter. It never does. Elegant, pretty, and very cool, this is so very Celine. At the Celine boutique, CHLOE LE DROZEN
