The project was commissioned by Dior Homme artistic director Kris Van Assche, inspired by his whimsical Fall/Winter '08 collection (opens in new tab), which featured butterflies on everything from blazers to t-shirts, and even butterfly-shaped bow ties. Nine thousand black decoupage replicas serpentine across the ceiling and walls of the white boutique, like Hitchcock's birds only less menacing, and much prettier. They'll be around for a month before flying away in the new year.
