As Dior resumes its tradition of showcasing its menswear collections around the world, the Pyramids of Giza in Cairo, Egypt will become the backdrop of the fashion house’s Pre-Fall 2023 collection on December 3, 2022. Designed by artistic director Kim Jones and titled ‘Celestial’, the collection aims to celebrate a lifelong passion for travel.
Jones shares a special connection with the continent, having spent his childhood years in Africa, and is known for his love for globetrotting and staging his designs abroad. Although the upcoming show marks Dior’s first in Egypt, the French fashion house’s relationship with the country dates back to 2004. It is when Dior’s then-creative director John Galliano took inspiration from his travels to Egypt to create the iconic Spring/Summer couture collection replete with cultural details. The Pre-Fall show will also be the second one post-Covid after last year’s London presentation. Previously, Dior has staged collections in Spain, China, Greece, Italy, South Korea, the UK, and the US.
As always, Vogue Arabia is all set to bring exclusive content straight from the red carpet and runway to the readers via our website and social media. Make sure to keep an eye out for your favorite stars and tune into the show at 4:30pm Cairo time through the livestream below.
