DIOR PRESENTS THE BEACH CAPSULE FOR THE FALL 2023 COLLECTION, IN COLLABORATION WITH PARLEY FOR THE OCEANS
For the second year running, Kim Jones has teamed up with parley for the oceans, an environmental organization and collaboration network taking action against ocean pollution. Together, they have conceived a committed beach capsule, reflecting dior’s desire to move towards a more sustainable and innovative fashion. A project inspired by the founding-designer’s passion for flowers and gardens, as well as for the sea.
Sharing this love and determination to protect the beauty of the aquatic world, the artistic director of dior men’s lines wanted to use respectful materials for this collection composed of 96% recycled fabrics. Testifying to the house’s infinite creativity, the pieces are embellished with a vibrant, joyful palette ranging from coral pink to lemon yellow, contrasting with a nuanced selection of grays – monsieur dior’s signature color. The unique models are adorned with iconic motifs such as the dior italic or the cd diamond. Celebrating the splendor of the marine universe, an underwater shot is printed on outfits, including surf wetsuits made with vissla, and on a stole. A new alliance, in the name of nature preservation.
