Into the wild
On Kim Jones‘ SS23 Dior runway, models walked across a garden setting kitted out with luggage designed in collaboration with Montana-based brand Mystery Ranch. Popular with firefighters, hikers, mountaineers and military, Mystery Ranch’s sophisticated purpose-built designs fused with Dior’s singular savoir-faire.
Inspired by Monsieur Dior’s love of gardening and Jones’ passion for travel, the resulting designs include an outdoorsy rework of the maison’s iconic Saddle bag, featuring a nylon shoulder strap and alumiunum CD buckle, a Gallagator backpack built for boundless adventure, and bumbags for tactical storage. Each piece is crafted using a padded surface and rendered in entirely recycled Cordura Nylon fabric, embroidered with Dior’s motif signatures. Complete the utilitarian chic with a zipped wallet and buckled tactical belt.
