In this film by Eddie Wrey starring Jecardi Sykes, the new ‘Beach Capsule’ from the Fall 2021 Dior men’s collection by Kim Jones stirs a wanderlust mood. Presented against a backdrop of crashing waves and tropical plants, classic beachwear items like bathrobes and swimsuits worked in a sea of blues are adorned with the Iconic ‘Dior Oblique’ motif, accessorized with matching must-have accessories including a metal water bottle.

Designed by Kim Jones, the Beachwear 2021 Capsule was inspired by the Artistic Director’s creative dialogue with Kenny Scharf*, initiated for the House’s fall 2021 Collection.

At the crossroads of the vintage, sportswear, fashion and casual universes, this new wardrobe is infused with a new, free and joyful energy. Brimming with the inventive passion of the American artist, an ensemble composed of a silk shirt and a swimsuit – complete with a bandana – brings to life the artist’s iconic Viva Mare Viva Mar painting featuring aquatic creatures in pop colors.

Echoing the 1960s and 1970s, retro t-shirts, polo shirts, shorts and bathrobes combine dior oblique motifs in tone-on-tone and terry cotton, along with two-tone effects and plays on transparency. Reflecting relaxed elegance, tracksuits are revisited in blue or white and feature the “Dior” logo in rubber; iconic leather goods and accessories also punctuate these looks celebrating the gentle life.

In this spirit, the saddle clutch or a refined boat bag adorned with the Dior Oblique jacquard are subtly paired with the Dior paradise espadrilles.

Meanwhile, the essential dior atlas sandals – true objects of desire – come in a new white version. As a final touch, a bottle in steel may be worn crossbody thanks to an irresistible leather and nylon shoulder strap. A summer ode to creativity and an invitation to escape.
