Nature has been a constant muse for Christian Dior and his iconic fashion house. From the stunning rose gardens in Granville to the picturesque Provencal gardens of La Colle Noire, Dior‘s love for the natural world was evident in his life and work. This connection to nature has become a defining theme of the House over the years.
To honor this legacy, Dior Men’s creative director Kim Jones has partnered with Mystery Ranch for the first time for the Dior Men Summer 2023 collection. Mystery Ranch, based in Montana near the Rocky Mountains, creates adventure-ready bags that are built to withstand even the harshest conditions.
The collaboration between Dior Men and Mystery Ranch has resulted in bags inspired by Dior’s love for gardening. The Saddle bag, a House staple, has been given an outdoorsy twist with a double-zipped compartment, a Nylon jacquard shoulder strap, and an aluminum buckle. This new design seamlessly blends form and function, luxury and practicality, and is a testament to the creativity of both brands.
The Gallagator backpack is made for urban explorers, and its signature Y-shaped 3-Zip closure system offers easy access to its interior storage spaces. The compression straps on the front of the backpack allow for volume adjustment, and it comes with a detachable water-repellent hooded cover.
These highly desirable and functional bags are made from recycled CORDURA® re/cor™ Nylon 6,6 fabric and are quilted for comfort. They are finished with a leather badge featuring the seals of both Houses, making them not just useful but also stylish.
