Fashionistas mark your calendar for June 17. French fashion house Dior will present its “Croisière 2022” collection in Athens.
“The house has chosen Athens, an exceptional destination, cradle of Western civilisation and European art, for its 2022 cruise collection,” it said in a statement.
No details were shared about the exact location.
Last summer, Dior launched its cruise collection in Piazza del Duomo in Lecce, Italy with only “friends and family” invited.
The cruise show comes 70 years after Monsieur Dior, the house’s founder, unveiled a couture collection at the Acropolis.
“Greece is a country that has always been close to my heart,” said Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s creative director.
“From mythology to the ‘Odyssey,’ and from architecture and philosophy to priceless crafts, Athens for me represents a dream destination for staging a show and celebrating, more than ever, the magic and transmission of cultures.”
“It is a great honour to be able to make this dream come true on June 17, in the heart of a capital of such prodigious beauty and through a wide range of artistic exchanges, from dance to drawing, and the ancestral skills that so fascinate me, which I will have the joy and privilege of showcasing in my collection,” Chiuri concluded.
The event will also showcase the creativity of local artists and artisans.
