After unveiling the collaboration at the start of the year, French Maison Dior has now officially released its capsule with Birkenstock. The collection features two signature silhouettes — the Tokio Mule and Milano Sandal — and takes inspiration from Christian Dior’s love of gardening.
Celebrating this influence, the two silhouettes mix functionality and elegance in tribute to the couturier. The mule and sandal also arrive in a variety of finishes, including black nubuck calfskin, grey felted wool and, for the Tokio Mule, a ‘Greige’ nubuck calfskin.
Alongside the Birkenstock collaboration, the French Maison has also released its new CD 1947 capsule. This collection is based on a dialogue between Kim Jones and the legacy of Christian Dior, with this relationship exemplified by a new ‘Christian Dior’ signature combined with ‘1947’ in honor of the first Dior show.
Both the CD 1947 collection and the full Birkenstock collaboration are available now via the Dior web store.

I am so looking forward to the beautiful partnership and meaningful conversations to come.
Sweeney’s incredible talent, entrepreneurial spirit and passion for supporting women resonated with Burch instantly. “Sydney is one of the most talented and relevant young actors working today, but I am equally inspired by her curiosity and confidence,” Burch says. “She is unapologetic and empowered in her approach to acting and business.

With travel at the heart of its history French Maison Louis Vuitton updates its Aerogram collection, which was initially launched last year, by introducing the Messenger Voyage and three new colors this year.
As always, the Aerogram collection blends the Maison’s heritage of travel with distinct modernity. While the collection’s leather goods offerings embody craftsmanship and nomadism, its sharp lines and contemporary detailing are designed for everyday elegance. Like the name of the collection, it is inspired by the aerogram, a folded sheet of paper that can both be a letter and a stamped envelope.
Launching in three new colorways this year, the travel accessories boast a new plain grey, bright orange and midnight blue. Each of the pieces’ shoulder strap, embossed logo and luggage tag are coordinated in the same tone to create an elevated accessory ready to add an edge to any outfit. Staying true to the collection, the silhouette of the pieces echoes the distinct shape of the envelope.
Seasonal classics like the Messengers bags, backpacks and Keepall bags and pouches are joined but yet another contemporary and practical piece, the Messenger Voyage, which is inspired by the iconic Pochette Voyage. With an adjustable shoulder strap, zipped front pocket and customizable cardholder, the bag is ready for any kind of travel.
The Louis Vuitton Aerogram collection is front and center with a new campaign. The advertisement stars are Valentine Caron, Fernando Cabral, Kohei Takabatake, and Leon Dame. Thurstan Redding photographs the models as they board a train in style.
Louis Vuitton’s Aerogram collection of men’s leather accessories is available at Louis Vuitton Boutiques worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Louis Vuitton.
Montblanc is celebrating the reopening of their flagship store in Masaryk, Mexico. The reopening of the boutique in Mexico City’s Masaryk is great news for lovers of the brand with more than 110 years of history. Located at Masaryk 440 in Colonia Polanco, this new vision aims to consolidate itself as a new flagship within the Maison and offer customers a much more personalized experience.
French object and space designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrence developed a concept with a pure and uncluttered aesthetic for the reopening of the boutique in Masaryk de Montblanc.

Of course, the reopening of the Montblanc boutique in Masaryk also highlights the important legacy left by the brand in terms of writing culture. Montblanc has enhanced the calligraphy experience by hand with the introduction of the Montblanc Ink Bar in select boutiques around the world.

Each customer will have the opportunity to customize their leather goods or writing instruments thanks to the initial engraving or embossing service available for select pieces. The point is not only to personalize the experience but to provide the customer with the option to distinguish their purchase with something very special.
Finally, in order to be able to receive customers more comfortably, the second floor is crucial in the reopening of the boutique in Masaryk de Montblanc. It is a room with a bar so that customers can enjoy their stay in the flagship and can discover every detail of the most exquisite pieces within the catalog.
