Dolce Vita with Dioriviera

In memory of Christian Dior's tight bond with the Riviera region – from the French Côte d'Azur to the Italian Liguria – Dior's Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri introduces her summery capsule collection. She revisits the Toile de Jouy in the pink and grey tones cherished by the New Look legend designer.

Dioriviera, summer capsule collection by Dior

The Dioriviera capsule collection thrives among a luxurious and luxuriant jungle inhabited by wildlife such as tigers, monkeys and reptiles. One-of-a-kind, highly attractive, this wardrobe is perfect for a whole day of looking dashing in the Mediterranean.

Skirts, dresses, shorts and swimsuits share the spotlight in this toile de Jouy Sauvage, with a very effective mix and match colour duo. The pink and grey also adorn a choice of must-have accessories for the beach.

The now iconic Dior Book Tote bags and Lady Dior bags coexist in this collection while Dway slides and J’Adior slingback pumps bring in Mediterranean elegance.

The pink and grey Toile de Jouy Sauvage upholsters the Dioriviera collection.

As for the slippers, sneakers, brim hats and striped sweaters, they play into the sports chic design of the Dioriviera capsule.

One-Piece Swimsuit – €‎1,800.
D-Bobby Large Brim Hat – €‎750.

Summer essentials

The soft and calming shades of the collection colour the must-have items of a leisurely day.

Surfboard – €9,000.

Start with a Sun salutation routine on the yoga mat, then tone your muscles with the dumbbells and ride the waves on your surfboard. Land on a comfortable lounger for a well-deserved nap under the protective shadow of a parasol.

Finish with a round of the throwing pins game with friends or family – or you may prefer to play with the pétanque balls set, or the table tennis paddles. Anyway, you will end up in a comfortable chair with embroidered cushions, at a table set with Dior harmonious candles and tableware for a happy, hearty dinner.

Dinner plate – €150 / Dessert plate – €130.
Place mat – €390.
