Dior invites you to spend Christmas at Harrods
In honour of the friendship forged between the House and Harrods over the past seventy years, Dior inaugurates The Fabulous World of Dior, a spectacular presentation illuminating the hallowed halls of the legendary Harrods department store. A magnetic Shepherd’s Star, placed as a central sculpture – erected to the height of seventeen meters, the building’s largest to date –, seems to dance weightlessly in front of the dome and guides visitors within. Opening the doors of this prestigious setting, they will discover two unprecedented pop-up stores that draw their decor from the most beautiful Christmas fairytales and navigate visitors through this refuge of the marvelous where a multitude of original creations, specially designed for the event, come to life. This enchanting pause in time reveals a thousand surprises, including a poetic exhibition reproducing, in an amazing play on scale and proportion, the architecture of Dior’s iconic locations – from Granville to La Colle Noire, via 30 Montaigne.
To end this dreamlike voyage into the heart of the Dior odyssey, the Maison also launches the Café Dior at Harrods, in homage to British culture and the pleasure of receiving guests, dear to Monsieur Dior.
Fendi teams up with Porter for 25 years of the Baguette
Unveiled during the Baguette 25th Anniversary Show in New York on September 9, Fendi teams up again with Japanese luggage expert Porter and its signature bonded nylon for a new collaboration that pays homage to the iconic Baguette bag.
This renewed partnership between the Roman Maison and the Japanese brand follows the first collaboration presented on the occasion of the Fendi Men’s Fall Winter 2019-20 Collection and launched in September 2019, back when the Baguette bag made its debut in the menswear world.
The new reinterpretations of the Baguette bag perfectly combine Porter’s supreme utility with Fendi’s luxurious appeal and creativity, bringing together the brands love for craftsmanship and materials. The Fendi and Porter Baguette bags will be available in Fendi boutiques worldwide, fendi.com and in Porter's Omotesando Store starting from November, 2022.
Moncler Maya 70 by Pierpaolo Piccioli
As part of Moncler's 70th anniversary celebrations, the brand launches the Moncler Maya 70 Collaborations: a series of seven reinterpretations of the iconic Maya jacket by seven designers. The Moncler Maya 70 by Pierpaolo Piccioli drops on November 19 – the sixth weekly launch in the series.
The style is a couture yet laid-back take on the Moncler classic, as Piccioli merges a fashion aesthetic with sports fabrics in his interpretation of the Maya. “I imagined a comfortable, relaxed, and nonchalant jacket in nylon laqué. The major challenge was the padded squares, profiled in the same fabric, joined together with manually applied fabric knots. I am fascinated by sport outerwear opportunities: within this frame, concrete benefits and stylish gems come together,” says Pierpaolo Piccioli, who chose supermodel Kirsten McMenamy for the campaign, adding “Kirsten is an artist, an interpreter: she was born for the scene and perfectly knows how to have fun on the set. Her versatile, histrionic aura permeates the atmosphere with contagious energy. That energy is what makes our job not only quality-driven, but funny and unique.”

Manufactured from regenerated raw materials including fishing nets, carpets, fabric scapes and pre-consumer plastic waste collected from oceans and landfills globally that would otherwise pollute the Earth.
