Designed by Kim Jones, the Dior Beachwear 2021 capsule was inspired by the artistic director’s creative dialogue with Kenny Scharf – in a partnership via Artestar, initiated for the House’s Fall 2021 collection. At the crossroads of the vintage, sportswear, fashion and casual universes, this new wardrobe is infused with a new, free and joyful energy. Brimming with the inventive passion of the American artist, an ensemble composed of a silk shirt and a swimsuit – complete with a bandana – brings to life the artist’s iconic Viva Mare Viva Mar painting featuring aquatic creatures in Pop colors. Echoing the 1960s and 1970s, retro T-shirts, polo shirts, shorts and bathrobes combine Dior Oblique motifs in tone-on-tone and terry cotton, along with two-tone effects and plays on transparency. Reflecting relaxed elegance, tracksuits are revisited in blue or white and feature the “Dior” logo in rubber; iconic leather goods and accessories also punctuate these looks celebrating the gentle life. In this spirit, the Saddle clutch or a refined boat bag adorned with the Dior Oblique jacquard are subtly paired with the Dior Paradise espadrilles.
Here’s a closer view at some of the looks from the Dior Beachwear 2021 collection:
Meanwhile, the essential Dior Atlas sandals – true objects of desire – come in a new white version. As a final touch, a bottle in steel may be worn crossbody thanks to an irresistible leather and Nylon shoulder strap. A summer ode to creativity and an invitation to escape.
