Christian Dior Couture Hits Tokyo
From the early Fifties when Christian Dior designed a series of looks in fabrics from Kyoto’s famous Tatsumura workshop to his childhood obsession with the Japanese screens in his home, the house of Dior has always had a long history with Japan. It’s fitting then that the bright lights of Tokyo would serve as the backdrop for the brand’s first ever pre-fall collection. 1,400 editors and celebrities gathered at Kokugikan, a popular sumo wrestling arena, including Audrey Tautou and Hailee Steinfeld as Raf Simons put on an extraordinary show.
The collection itself comprised special occasion pieces – think cocktail gowns and red carpet dresses – totally fitting with the house’s signature style. We’ve got all the looks here!
