Dior has collaborated with environmental organization Parley for the Oceans on a new swimwear capsule collection. The network works to address major threats to the oceans, implementing a strategy called Parley Air: Avoid, React, Redesign. The strategy tackles marine plastic pollution and how people can reinvent plastic materials by using up-cycled plastic waste.
Designed by Kim Jones, the collection works towards this vision of reinventing plastic by means of eco-friendly pieces that signify the House’s desire for a more sustainable future in fashion. The pieces are designed for men and include a number of looks from swim shorts, polo shirts, hoodies, hold bottles, sandals, flippers, bandanas, sneakers, snorkels, to caps and bucket hats. Two bags were designed specifically for this swimwear line, including a saddle bag and a cabas bag, both in hues of brown and the Dior name printed on them. The collection even includes a few pieces of jewelry inclusive of a bracelet, necklace, and a ring that are all embedded with the fashion house name Dior. In shades of blue and orange, the pieces also capture the summer skies and sunsets.
