The House of Dior Ginza

The heart of Tokyo, at GINZA SIX, is the location for the House's opening of a new five-story boutique today. 

For Dior, the architect Yoshio Taniguchi, notably famed for his reinvention of the MoMA in New York, conceived a unique façade evoking a light-filled dégradé of white sails, structured by horizontal lines and punctuated by four large street-level windows. For the interior, Peter Marino, star architect of Dior boutiques around the world, has created a contemporary atmosphere dominated by white tones, in which the modern furnishing integrate seamlessly. The visitor is welcomed by the House's leather goods collections, presented in a seven-meter-tall atrium, in addition to the accessories and jewelry and timepieces creations. A few steps further along, on a floor whose beige Tavel stone and black cabochons stretch out like a long carpet, one reaches the first floor where the shoes are displayed in a space decorated with a wall artwork by Tarik Kiswanson. The other levels contain the women's ready-to-wear collections, the Dior MAISON line, Dior Homme, and a VIP salon. On the third floor, the Café Dior by Pierre Hermé provides the opportunity for a delicious pit stop to sample the desserts created exclusively by the celebrated eponymous French pâtissier-chocolatier.

Dior Homme Fall 2017 – The Collection

On Wednesday evening in Tokyo,   Kris Van Assche premiered his Dior Homme fall 2017 collection in a worldwide exclusive. 

In the collection pitched between rebellion and elegance designed by Kris Van Assche for this autumn, the tailoring savoir-faire and sportswear spirit fuse, and a certain sense of nostalgia is mixed through with references taken from popular culture. From look to look graphic elements give a jolt to masculine classics – the almost monochrome palette contrasts with touches of electric blue and the "scream red" used by Monsieur Dior in 1947; the words "NEWAVE" and "SCREAM" are superimposed over the House logo, or become abstract motifs; embroideries in bright red, black or white seem to be unraveling on suits or blousons. The collection, offered as a global first exclusively at the new Dior Homme GINZA SIX boutique with the addition of two location-specific looks, will be available in the rest of the world from the month of May.
