A New Face

Today, the house of Dior is pleased to announce Johnny Depp as the face of a new men's fragrance to be unveiled in September. We take a look at the career path of a highly singular actor.

He has been cinema's most famous pirate, Jack Sparrow, and the alter ego of the poet William Blake in Dead Man, on the run in the American west. He has been the rookie cop from 21 Jump Street and the bad boy of Cry-Baby; the fantastical creature Edward Scissorhands and a man caught up with the reality of his past in Arizona Dream.

For three generations of viewers, Johnny Depp is an utterly unique Hollywood icon, capable of taking on all roles, from the most realistic characters to the most fantastic figures dreamed up by Tim Burton, and as comfortable in front of the camera of such cutting-edge auteurs as Emir Kusturica or Jim Jarmusch as he is in global blockbusters like Pirates of the Caribbean. Which new character will this legendary actor be playing for Dior? You’ll have to wait until September to find out!

Accessories

Boasting exotic skins, animalistic motifs and camouflage details, the accessories from the autumn-winter 2015-16 ready-to-wear collection by Raf Simons for Dior are a display of creative mutation. 

The urban landscape in which the Dior woman is evolving is a territory she's very much claimed as her own. Her instinctive style combines total femininity with primitive animality, continuing down to her accessories. The Diorama, the House's new bag, has been reborn in exotic skins, whether acid green crocodile or pink and red lizard. The iconic Lady Dior shows off a new equally precious carapace on which bright colors and motifs inspired by Monsieur Dior's beloved bestiary mix. Also on her arm, a saddle bag in brown python or blue and black stripes.

Ankle boots and thigh boots, first appearing at the the haute-couture spring-summer 2015 show, have transmuted, coming in zebra and mottled prints, swirling with bright or dull colors, sometimes given transparent plexiglas heels. 

Details of this new kind of camouflage, bibs such as faux collars in chainmail lacquered green, black, brown and pink, or metal rings randomly lacquered in pink and blue, blend naturally with the look.

The final attribute of this wild and sensual woman is that she sports an earring on only one ear, part paperclip, part safety pin, in a medley of sizes, gold and silver.
