To celebrate the opening of Dior’s new boutique in the Ginza Six shopping center in Tokyo, the Maison held an exceptional live Dior Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2017 show. Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director of Dior women’s collections, designed a capsule collection of ready-to-wear and accessories inspired by the deep bond that exists between Dior and Japan, while Kris Van Assche reveled the Dior Homme Fall-Winter 2017 collection.
The roof of the new Ginza Six building, high above the equally new House of Dior, provided the location for Dior Haute Couture Spring-Summer show. In a labyrinth designed like a secret garden, Maria Grazia Chiuri presented her first haute couture creations for Spring-Summer 2017. Flowers, plants and allegorical images channel the imagination of Christian Dior, evoking the changing seasons and ornamenting evening dresses in a metamorphosis of powdery colors. The new creation were inspired by Monsieur Dior’s 1953 design of a Japanese garden dress. Fluid dresses, jackets, a coat, and a long hooded cape are decorated with delicate embroidered flowers, paired with bird motifs.
Dior Homme Creative Director Kris Van Assche has unveiled his collection for Fall-Winter 2017. Featuring two silhouettes designed exclusively for the Ginza Six boutique, the collection pairs classic men’s suit elements with sportswear, expressing an elegant rebellion. Touches of electric blue and red meet polka dots on parkas and jackets, joined by narrow tuxedo pants. Graphic elements are blended with the classic Dior Homme wardrobe for a hybrid collection.
Inaugurated on April 20, the new Dior Ginza Six boutique covers five levels with a façade on the famous Chuo Dori shopping street, offering the complete range of Dior creations for women and men.
