Camouflage motifs grace several of the new shoes, mirroring a patterned leather set seen on the runway that utilized a painterly motif to soften a traditionally militaristic motif. Otherwise, many of the footwear silhouettes are rendered in tonal, versatile black and graced by white “DIOR” branding, grippy midsoles and the occasional Oblique monogram, which appears in full on new gold and silver B23 models.
This matches several of the new Saddle Bags and even ties into the vivid hues that grace lush knitwear and ceremonial uniform-inspired jackets alike. Opulent leather headgear playfully roughs up against the refined tailoring and trim turtlenecks that are a house favorite, as the seasonal artwork takes center stage atop otherwise muted car coats.
All of the Winter 2021 goods launch via Dior’s usual channels later this year.
