LONDON (AP) — Dior is returning to England’s historic Blenheim Palace to unveil its Cruise collection.

The show Tuesday brings Dior back to the site of earlier triumphs in 1954 and 1958.

The first was spearheaded by Christian Dior and the second by his protege, Yves Saint Laurent. Both were attended by Princess Margaret.

Blenheim, traditionally the residence of the Duke of Marlborough, is one of England’s grandest palaces and was the birthplace of wartime leader Winston Churchill.

The Dior show is timed to highlight the opening of a new boutique in London.
