Following the circus-themed Spring 2019 Couture extravaganza that took place in Dubai in March, Dior has sent a clear signal regarding its affinity for our city with a dazzling new capsule collection. Created specially by Maria Grazia Chiuri herself, the Dior ‘Dior Or’ range includes renovated versions of pieces from the house’s Fall 2019 line, gilded to perfection. The gold-themed collection is a nod and a wink to Dubai – a place that boasts the biggest, the best, and the most ostentatious – but it is also an acknowledgement of the precious metal’s prevalence in Middle Eastern design.
The Dior ‘Dior Or’ capsule collection extends beyond ready-to-wear to include accessories, sunglasses, bags, and shoes. For day, there are Lurex trousers, graphic-printed blouses, and an elegantly tailored tweed skirt suit, while evening embraces a blend of Dior codes and glittering ephemera in the form of sheer, ruffled gowns and Lurex dresses that glitter when you move. Accessory options are expansive, including a covetable array of custom jewelry pieces that feature moon charms or spell out the word “Dior”, as well as aviator sunglasses, sparkling high-heeled sandals, Lurex sneakers, and more.
But it’s the bags that really caught our eye.
With this collection, Chiuri proves to have the Midas touch.
The ‘Dior Or’ collection amplifies the sleek beauty of the iconic ‘Lady Dior’ by presenting it in various shades of gold, as well as embroidered and beaded options, a version adorned with floral appliqués, and even two takes on snakeskin. Alongside, the brand’s classic ‘Saddle’, ‘Dior Book Tote’, and ‘Diorama’ bags are offered in precious gold and beautifully embroidered surfaces. With this collection, Chiuri proves to have the Midas touch.
These stunning iterations are available exclusively in Dior boutiques across Dubai and the Middle East as we speak, and will take you nicely through Ramadan, Eid, and long after that – because who cares about fashion trends when you’re wearing pieces from this fabulous collection?
