It's a fresh dose of luxury in Tokyo this week as Dior looks set to dominate the fashion news with their take on Japanese designs...

Bringing its brand of European luxury to the Far East, French luxury label Dior is set to host three exclusive events in Tokyo, starting with the Haute Couture Spring/Summer '17 runway show on April 19. The fashion spectacle will see Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri present new key pieces that were inspired by a 1953 design, which first revealed Christian Dior's affinity to Japanese culture. Following that, the maison's Menswear Creative Director, Kris Van Assche, will debut the Dior Homme Fall '17 collection before the party culminates the next day with the opening of the new Dior boutique in Ginza Six.

In addition to the upcoming events, Dior has also released an exclusive video in which Chiuri shares how she translates her Japanese inspirations into the collections. Watch the video now...
