French luxury fashion house Dior has unveiled its special Ramadan collection, designed specifically for the Middle Eastern market. The collection features elegant, modest styles that are perfect for the festive season, with a focus on the traditional kaftan and abaya styles.
Gold has been an integral part of Dior’s history since its inception. The founder’s creation of the gold lamé Golconde dress in 1947 established the metallic hue as a symbol of the house’s audacity. Designer Maria Grazia Chiuri pays tribute to Christian Dior by incorporating gold into the Dior OR capsule collection every season, featuring iconic models with dazzling touches that appeal to the region’s love for the French luxury brand’s ready-to-wear and accessories.
Just in time for Ramadan, Maria Grazia unveils her latest capsule collection, which includes smart long dresses, midi skirts, and airy knits in luminous metallic gold tones. The collection also features unprecedented pieces, such as a boxy jacket adorned with the “CD” signature buttons, exemplifying the designer’s refined and contemporary allure.
The Middle Eastern warm-weather wardrobe staples are complemented with footwear like the 30 Montaigne and D-Way mules and Walk’n’Dior sneakers in enchanting golden hues. Additionally, iconic bags and accessories are given the gold treatment, culminating in a bracelet with the word Dior written in dazzling charms.
Previous Dior Gold collections were influenced by the house’s golden oldies, such as Marc Bohan’s Pépite dress and Lauren Hutton’s sleek, luminous gown in the film All Fired Up. This time, Maria Grazia creates a dreamlike universe that showcases the house’s inventiveness and the savoir-faire of its ateliers, infused with her own culture and Italian influences. The capsule collection is exclusively previewed in the Middle East before its worldwide launch on March 16th.
