Dior is ready to welcome the Year of the Ox with its new Chinese New Year men’s capsule.
By large, the new collection reinterprets the powerful creative dialogue between Kim Jones and artist Shawn Stussy.
The series of pieces unveiled by the French luxury fashion house not only ties into the auspicious celebration but also more importantly reinvents Dior’s unwavering ties with China. Just in time for Chinese New Year, this capsule is perfect to welcome the Ox in fashionable form.
Symbols Of Chinese New Year
Specially created in collaboration with the designer, the new Dior capsule is uniquely inspired by the Lunar New Year. The ox, the totem animal of the Chinese zodiac in 2021, is revisited in shades of navy blue, white or red and bearing the Dior and Shawn signature in minimalist graffiti.
This exceptional design, embroidered like an elegant statement, is presented captivatingly in the new collection. Crossing countercultures and the sportswear universe, the motif comes to life on a jersey hoodie, enhanced with moiré effects, a two-tone reversible T-shirt, sweaters, an overshirt and a vintage-style bomber.
Reinvention Of Styles
The Saddle and the Rider, the house’s emblematic bags, have also been reinvented. A new white version punctuated with the letters “Dior” and the new logo, is inarguably a standout piece. The B23 sneakers – adorned with a patch – and the B27 sneakers, meanwhile, blend the iconic Dior Oblique code with the sunny spirit of the American artist’s creations.
As a final touch, a range of irresistible accessories complements the new capsule. This includes ties, belt buckles, jewellery – with hand-applied strass – and card holders, all of which pay homage to the infinite cultural richness of the Lunar New Year.
