Dior unveils new oblique tapestry material for accessories
NAMED after Christian Dior’s FW 1950 show, the Oblique pattern is one of the most recognisable signature from the French fashion house. Originally created in 1967 by the-then creative director Marc Bohan, the material debuted two years later on the bags of the latest Dior couture collection.
Since then John Galliano and Maria Grazia Chiuri have had a go at putting their own twist on this iconic logo mania pattern. Now, menswear designer Kim Jones has reimagined the Dior Oblique as a tapestry to create the accessories for winter 2020.
The wool embroidery showcases the talent of the brand’s ateliers who are able to mould this fabric into a soft version of the Saddle Bag, the Rider backpack and the sought-after B23 trainers.
Jones is taking the print from the runway to our winter streets.
