THE DIOR BY BIRKENSTOCK COLLABORATION is giving us Hippie Vibes, Paris’ menswear shows have been providing us with a much-needed fashion fix following months of largely digital-only events. Designers have made sure to pull out all the stops in celebration of the return of IRL shows, with show-stopping sets and the unveiling of exciting new collaborations.
THE DIOR X BIRKENSTOCK COLLABORATION
The latest announcement that’s got the fashion crowd buzzing? A collaboration between Birkenstock and Dior, which was just teased at the French fashion house’s latest AW22 menswear show in Paris.
If past Birkenstock collaborations with the likes of Proenza Schouler, Jil Sander and Valentino are anything to go by, the new unisex styles from Dior are bound to be a sell-out sensation. The only problem is that you’ll have to wait until next season to get your hands on a pair, with the brand confirming that the three-piece capsule won’t be on sale until June 2022.
THE DIOR Hippie Vibes
Dior Men’s artistic director Kim Jones has teamed up with Birkenstock to create a high-fashion twist on the practical shoe, reimagining the traditional Tokio mule and Milano sandal in dove-grey felt and suede styles.
Dior has dubbed the collaboration ‘a contemporary ode to function and elegance’, using Monsieur Dior’s love for the art of gardening as inspiration to create three stylish models – one of which sees the Tokio style embroidered with delicate flowers by Maison’s own ateliers. Hopefully, they will produce more in smaller sizes for us girls.
