An autumn evening in Giza, at the setting of the sun behind the Great Pyramid… As the light changes, silhouettes emerge from the desert, in motion, reflecting the colors of the sky, the landscape and the passage of time. As night falls stars reveal themselves.
Discover the scenography for Dior Men’s Fall 2023 collection by Artistic Director Kim Jones. Presented at the monumental Giza pyramid complex in Egypt, the location draws the inspiration from Maison’s founder Christian Dior’s fascination with symbols and superstitions.

My interest in ancient Egypt is about the stars and the sky. It’s that fascination with the ancient world and the parallels with what we look at today; what we inherited from them and what we are still learning from the past. It links to Christian Dior in that sense and by way of his fascination with symbols and superstitions that recur throughout his life and work, one of which is the star. In both the collection and the show there is an idea of ‘guided by the stars’ and what that can entail in many ways. It’s about how the past shapes the future or an idea of the future from the past.
