I want to do that, I want to do this. I want to enjoy life even more! Based on such greedy thoughts, we will deliver the daily life of editor-in-chief Ishii, who enjoys life full of distractions. This time, we'll be talking about a certain collaboration that has already become a hot topic among fashionistas. Dior and the up-and-coming brand Denim Tears have teamed up to release a capsule collection under the name Dior Tears. Moreover, a limited-time pop-up is being held in Harajuku, Tokyo! This is also something that really appeals to the stylish old man...
This collaboration. It would be no exaggeration to say that the extraordinary talent of Kim Jones, Dior's men's artistic director, has become even more well-known. He has been praised since the beginning of his appointment for his respect for the maison's archives, his thorough knowledge of tailoring, and the way he weaves together his street roots, but he also has a great sense of aesthetics when it comes to hooking up with up-and-coming talent. Who did he collaborate with on the 5th anniversary of his appointment? It was ``Denim Tears'' by Tremaine Emory, who consults for various street brands including Stussy. What's even more talked about is that they have announced a capsule collection called "Dior Tears" which is a combination of "Dior" and "Denim Tears," and are holding a pop-up for a limited time in Harajuku, Tokyo.
I went to the opening the other day and couldn't remember how many times I said, "Wow, I want this!"... Look at both the rabbit and the horn!
And before that. A jazz band with a chill atmosphere greeted us at the opening. Amidst the poetic light that seemed to have passed through a filter, I surrendered to the sounds and sipped on chilled champagne (I'm drinking it here too, after all lol). Ready to see the collaboration collection! From here, we will deliver Ishii's "I want this!"
This capsule collection is a story that connects New York and Paris via New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz. The keyword is "jazz journey." Particular attention was paid to items with motifs of American casual staples such as checked shirts, drizzlers, chino materials, and low-tech sneakers. Items from youth are brought back to life with the scent of Paris. The atmosphere that each person gave off...it wasn't that I drank too much, but I was simply moved. The spatial composition of the huge installation, which was bathed in unique light, was also spectacular.
However, it has a relaxed composition, as if you were invited to a friend's house. Ah, I want to stay here forever...
lastly. This pop-up is for a limited time only, and will last until July 30th (Sunday). There's only a little time left, but I have to see it and buy it! It is.
