DIOR(E)VOLUTION Pop-up at ION Orchard

Maria Grazia Chiuri sent the fashion world into a tizzy when she sent statement t-shirts and a brand new, edgier aesthetic down the runway for Dior’s spring/summer 2017 collection. And as part of a brand initiative to celebrate this globally, Dior has launched a DIOR(E)EVOLUTION pop-up at ION Orchard. Take a fashionably gander over to the atrium to shop uber cool accessories and embroidered tulle dresses and leather jackets up close, and take endless snaps of the highly Instagrammable neon lights.
