Following the Maison’s menswear Winter 2022 Collection debut in January of this year, the French Maison Dior has now opened a respective pop-up store in Los Angeles.
Located on Beverly Hill’s infamous Rodeo Drive (where else), the boutique offers another look at Kim Jones’ refined collection that was filled with asymmetrical closure pants, elevated overcoats, exquisite wrap and double-breasted blazers, relaxed yet refined pants and more.
Whether it be a light gray wool overcoat or a waist-hugging blazer, tailoring was Jones’ exhibition of beauty. Alongside ready-to-wear garments, the show also featured Dior’s now popular Birkenstock collaboration.
Bringing Paris to the West Coast, the pop-up store is inspired by the Alexandre III bridge with an array of Art Nouveau lamp posts and images of the Parisian skyline. The boutique also features a gold 3D-printed Pegasus sculpture that is exclusive to the Rodeo Drive location. From elevated overcoats and cheetah-print jackets to bejeweled derbys, the boutique showcases a range of the Winter 2022 collection pieces.

The Dior Mens Wear Pop-Up Boutique is now open through Monday, September 19. Come into the beautiful world of Dior.
Following the unveiling of its sharp Fall/Winter 2022 Collection in March, iconic British fashion house Burberry has tapped Amsterdam-based label Pop Trading Company for a capsule collection inspired by global skate communities.
A fusion of Burberry’s design DNA and Amsterdam’s skate-inspired style, reinterpreting the sense of adventure and freedom in every Burberry piece.
Ditching signature tones of beige and birch brown, the range instead opts for a palette of grey, black and red, paying homage to dark cityscapes in Japan where skating is restricted during the day and comes alive at night. Among relaxed silhouettes and liberated proportions, the collection encapsulates the imprints’ twin penchants for sartorial exploration.
Under Burberry’s codes, the line plants a new blurred Check in an exclusive colorway onto technical parkas, zipped jackets, silk shirts, cotton cargo trousers and a multitude of accessories. Elsewhere, reflective Check resides on classic car coats and an enlarged Icon stripe is jacquard-woven onto a grey melange cardigan.
Meanwhile, oversized T-shirts, hoodies, baseball caps and a blanket are doused in dual-branding motifs, some of which include the exact coordinates for both brands’ headquarters, while others provide a more playful remix with animated lettering. For footwear, the collaboration offers deep maroon leather loafers detailed with a metal logo medallion.
