French luxury fashion house Christian Dior is bringing its latest collection to Egypt.
Globetrotting designer Kim Jones will debut his men’s pre-fall collection will an in-person show hosted at the pyramids of Giza on December 3.
The celestial collection celebrates a lifelong passion for travel.
Last year, the luxury fashion house resumed its pre-coronavirus tradition of traveling men’s pre-fall collections with a show in London.
The British designer previously staged pre-fall runways in Miami and Tokyo.
Jones, the son of a hydrogeologist, Jones, has a long-standing relationship with the African continent, having spent his childhood years in Botswana, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Ghana. He continues to travel the globe to gather inspiration and see rare and exotic animals in their natural habitat.
Founder Christian Dior was also known for his international outlook, establishing global subsidiaries shortly after launching his house in 1947.
This will mark the first-ever show for French luxury brand in Egypt, following events in Italy, Greece, Spain, South Korea, China, the U.K., and the U.S. in recent years.
Luxury brands have incorporated elements and themes of Egypt’s history and culture into their designs, flaunting glitz and glamor in breathtaking collections. Dior’s spring 2004 haute couture collection, designed by John Galliano, was a tributed to Ancient Egypt.
