The House of Dior and the Le Musée du Louvre have signed a five-year partnership that will see landscaping and restoration of Le Jardin des Tuileries.
Dior has committed to financing a series of major projects from 2020 to 2024. The aim is to revive and perpetuate historical richness of Le Louvre that draws 14 million visitors annually. Currently, 17 master gardeners maintain the 23 hectares of greenery, lawns and groves, six basins with fountains and water features.
The programme should begin in April 2020 with the reopening of the northeast grove. It measures 3,000 square meters populated by 116 trees from four different species. Considering current COVID-19 confinement, the exact date of opening is not known yet.
This symbolic and concrete action highlights Dior’s and Maria Grazia Chiuri’s commitment to environment and the fight against global warming. Dior added, “it is more vital now than ever: each of us can be an agent of change for the ecosystems of tomorrow, whether natural or cultural.”
