Dior x Sorayama B23 High-Top Sneaker

Dior-x-Sorayama-B23-High-Top-Sneaker-01.jpg

Hajime Sorayama is an acclaimed Japanese illustrator famed for his works of retro-futuristic robots (specifically eye-popping female androids) and also the man behind the creation of the 39-foot-tall silver cyborg that formed the gorgeous centrepiece of Kim Jones’ Pre-Fall 2019 menswear show held in Tokyo.

Sorayama is also credited with the creation of this exclusive print created for Dior, in which a dinosaur robot is set within a picturesque landscape of delicate cherry blossoms. Interestingly, the composition is anything but jarring and one that works well with the #DiorOblique print.

And because Dior likes to release its products in several drops across the season, you will have to wait patiently for the entire Pre-Fall 2019 collection to arrive in stores. If, however, you’ve got your eyes set on these gorgeous B23 High-Top Sneakers, the good news is that it is part of the very first drop that’s now available across Dior boutiques worldwide. Coming in a beige or blue printed #DiorOblique technical canvas body, the standout feature’s got to be the addition of the Sorayama’s dinosaur.

Priced slightly higher at $1050 (when you say it quikly, it isn’t a lot), this is definitely the sneaker that any Kim Jones/Hajime Sorayama fan shouldn’t be without.

Come into the beautiful world of Christian Dior.

Maison Christian Dior opens at ION Orchard

Christian-Dior-Singapore-01

Christian Dior is one of the most recognisable names in luxury, an impressive feat especially since Christian Dior himself only helmed the brand for a mere eleven years. One of Dior’s biggest contributions to his brand was his assertion that a fragrance makes an outfit complete, which is why there have always been strong floral motifs that run through our minds when we think of princess Dior gowns, and popular perfumes like Miss Dior (we all believe we smell like Natalie Portman after spraying it)….

A drop of perfume and you are dressed in Dior.

Christian Dior

For all Singapore residents and visitors, French Maison Christian Dior has made it’s way to Asia Pacific for the first time ever, landing itself in a boutique at ION Orchard in the heart of of the city’s shopping district. A one-stop destination for perfume-lovers from all over the world.

Christian-Dior-Singapore-02

For all fragrance lovers, here are some exclusive first-look pics of the elegant boutique in elegant white marble, polished concrete juxtaposed with a warm wood floor. In all, creating a light, understated ambience, where all that matters is the pure pleasure of perfume, where the perfumes take centrestage in the understated ambience.

The Christian Dior Lucky fragrance is, in fact, a good luck charm. Dior uses their iconic lily, which Christian Dior used to stitch onto his dresses, as a primary floral scent which gradually becomes apparent when spritzed.

Immerse your senses in the Home for the love of fragrances, and choose from a remarkable collection with 20 beautiful signature fragrances together with candles and Mitzah. Mitzah silk scarves were named after Christian Dior’s muse, Mitzah Bricard. Besides personifying Parisian elegance, Bricard was known for typing a scarf on her wrist as a fashion statement (a collection of silk scarves for perfuming) that best suits you.
