The 2021 Dior Advent Calendar Is the Calendar to Beat All Calendars
The 2021 Dior Advent Calendar is a rarity: one made for all.

What makes the 2021 Dior Advent Calendar the king (or queen) of advent calendars? What lends it as much hype as a Supreme drop or a Louis Vuitton x *Guest Designer* collaboration? What makes it one of the advent calendars we somehow dream about the minute Mariah Carey starts defrosting?

Firstly, it’s jam-packed with value for he, her and them. While other advent calendars tend to be directed at a female audience, the Dior 2021 Advent Calendar is almost 50/50 when it comes to kitting out the genders — the Parisian House’s hero products all in miniature forms including skincare and fragrance.

Secondly and there’s no easier way to put it but it’s simply quite beautiful. Not kitschy or kiddish, the 2021 Dior Advent Calendar is designed in collaboration with London-based artist illustrator Alice Shirley as a tribute to the architecture of the house’s iconic Paris Boutique. And yes, if you’re a Diorette or a Diorsieur, you’d recognise the House’s iconic motives like flowers and bees — a subtle flex if you open it in front of unsuspecting guests.

“And through the many windows we can see the garden beyond stretching to the horizon… A dream in the mind, encapsulated in this fairytale book to escape to on cold winter nights filled with stories.” says Alice Shirley herself. If we could summarise it for you, it’s 24 days of full blown delight. In fact, you might even want to be a grinch about it this season.
