What do you get when you give Berlin-based artist Anselm Reyle free reign over Dior’s bags and accessories? You get a limited edition capsule collection of course, with icons like the Lady Dior and Miss Dior reinterpreted as the artist saw fit; in the brightest of acid hues in shiny patent leathers and contrast stitching that makes everything pop like it’s the 80s all over again.
The Dior + Anselm Reyle collection is loud, almost irreverent, as far as the capsule collection is concerned, and one that won’t find many fans as far as the purists are concerned.
But for those longing for something upbeat, fun and totally in-your-face, these are exact pieces for you, from the camouflage print Panarea totes to the New Lock clutch, most of them accompanied with a pair of coloured triangles, the artist’s graphic signature. Watch the video, and see the artist at work.
Due out in Singapore from January 2012 onwards, prices will start from SGD400 for the bangle to SGD6000 for the Lady Dior in lambskin, and besides the bags and accessories, you’ll also find other essentials from shoes to scarves, sunglasses and a cosmetic line from this collection.
