Dior sets a date for cruise show, Hyunjin from stray kids stars in Versace holiday campaign
In a recent interview with WWD, Chiuri noted that Dior had a global outlook from its founding in 1947
Pencil in another date on next year’s cruise calendar: Dior said Monday that its destination show would take place on June 3.
The French fashion house has yet to unveil the location of the event, which since the lifting of pandemic-era restrictions has taken place in Mexico City; Seville, Spain, and Athens. Louis Vuitton’s cruise show has been scheduled for May 23.
Maria Grazia Chiuri, artistic director of womenswear collections at Dior, is expected to continue her tradition of collaborating with local craftspeople on the annual collection, which has the potential to significantly boost tourism revenues in its destination.
The brand, owned by French luxury conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, has ramped up the pace of physical events, including a pre-fall show in Mumbai in March and a repeat show for its fall collection in Shenzhen, China, in July.
In a recent interview with WWD, Chiuri noted that Dior had a global outlook from its founding in 1947.
She added that for a brand of Dior’s size, it was important to stage physical events in other countries.
Even by Las Vegas standards, Kylie Minogue made an entrance for the ages on Friday at The Venetian, kicking off her Voltaire residency by throwing off a gigantic faux fur pink coat.
It was one of three looks created for the performer by French designer Alexandre Vauthier, who also designed her asymmetrical open-back fringed dress in a sunset gradient of crystals she also wore that evening and a leopard crystal-embroidered jumpsuit in red with matching boots, slated to appear later.
Vauthier was particularly proud of the fringed dress, a “real challenge” that required well over 2,000 hours of work.
