Leading edge: First Ski Capsule with Dior
The House of Dior presents its first ever Ski Capsule, a new collection of ready-to-wear, skis, snowboards and accessories designed by Kim Jones, Artistic Director of men’s collections, in close collaboration with the brands Descente, AK SKI and POC.
Created jointly with the Japanese specialist Descente in a limited edition, ensembles designed for winter sports revisit Dior codes with refinement. Inspired by the vintage Japanese trends Kim Jones loves, they come in a palette of luminous colors.
Jackets in navy blue, yellow or purple feature the noteworthy characteristics:
- Waterproof, ultra-light and insulating
- Ensured temperature regulation by the ventilation system in the back and arms
- Specific ‘tapping’ process evacuates the water, guaranteeing a strong impermeability
Benefitting from the same qualities, a version with removable sleeves completes the collection, along with a windbreaker.
The pants offer a streamlined cut ensuring flexibility and comfort, ideally adapted to the practice of skiing and snowboarding.
Dior’s virtuoso art of detail is reflected in the lining decorated with the Dior Oblique motif and the elegant, laser-cut Dior logo that creates an elegant play on texture.
To complete these exceptional looks, the House partnered with Swiss artisans AK SKI to create a pair of skis and a snowboard. Available in two sizes, they are crafted from a unique wood and carbon alloy and feature high shock absorption capacity.
As a final surprise, helmets and goggles designed by a Swedish company POC enrich this capsule with an upscale touch. Specially developed for winter sports enthusiasts, the helmet combines infinite lightness and maximum protection, like the goggle, with its extra-wide field of vision and Clarity lenses.
These singular creations, which also include gloves, a scarf and headbands designed by Dior, carry the promise of a relaxed attitude in all circumstances, whether on the slopes or on the sidelines, a celebration of an invigorating new way of life.
These objects of desire are available in Dior boutiques and pop ups worldwide from November 2020.
