The Dior Beachwear collection is not lacking in exoticism

A fitting tribute to Japan, where Dior presented its 2019 pre-fall parade in Tokyo last November, the beachwear capsule collection designed by Kim Jones does not lack an exotic flavor.

We knew the designer Kim Jones great traveler, with a predilection for Southeast Asia, but from there to imagine creations as exotic ... Nothing to do with his aristocratic autumn-winter parade, it is true presented last January under Parisian skies much more gray. But after all, it is the virtue of these exclusive capsule collections, now obligatory passages: to disturb the tracks, to mark the spirits and to fan the lust. This is done through a collaboration with the contemporary Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama who imagined for this line beachwear two prints combining figures of animals and recurrent gynoids in his work with patterns of waves and foliage, dubbed "Seascape" and "Hawaiian Robots". On arrival, an unusual world for pieces quite classic: Hawaiian shirts, swim shorts, fluid jackets, leather goods, sneakers, silk scarves and beach towels. Widely enough to equip for the summer, since the collection is sold since early June in some outlets Dior only, strategically well thought out: Ibiza, Mykonos, Saint-Tropez, Monaco and Marbella. And Paris avenue Montaigne, for those who work.
