My relationship with the Harry Potter franchise has been strained ever since J.K. Rowling became painfully active on Twitter, but Gryffindior, a new Instagram fan account, is acting as a visual salve. Gryffindior is to the point, putting the cherished characters of Hogwarts' bravest house into the house of Dior — an alternative Hogwarts, A History worth getting behind.
Seeing Professor Dumbledore in a leather beret and black sunglasses from Dior's F/W 17 on The Cut's Instagram was only the beginning. The account catalogues Dior's best looks from decades past to the present day on unsuspecting witches, wizards, house elves, ghosts, and even half-sentient portraits. A photo of Hermione as Bellatrix Lestrange traipsing around Gringotts Wizarding Bank in a Dior look that Bella Hadid is probably wearing this very second feels like a shot of Felix Felicis straight to the heart, and makes me thrilled for what else Gryffindior has up its proverbial robe sleeve.
There's already a sister page dedicated to what I've always considered to be the sartorially superior Hogwarts house, Slytherin, but house allegiances aside, peep some of the most magical mash-up photos below.
