Dior to present men’s pre-fall collection in Egypt

French fashion house Dior will showcase their men’s pre-fall ‘Celestial’ collection against the majestic backdrop of the Pyramids of Giza in Cairo, Egypt, on Dec. 3.

On December 3, the show will take place in the foreground of the Giza Pyramids near the nation’s capital, Cairo, marking Dior’s latest destination runway. According to a statement obtained by WWD, “the celestial collection celebrates a lifelong passion for travel.”

The new collection is designed by Kim Jones, Dior Men’s artistic director, who spent his childhood years in Botswana, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya and Ghana. The show is reportedly intended to honour his long-standing connection to the continent. 

Dior has previously shown collections in Spain, China, Greece, Italy, South Korea, the UK and the U.S., but Jones’ upcoming Pre-Fall show will mark its first ever presentation in Egypt.
