As part of the collaboration, Gran Turismo 7 will feature new and exclusive Dior racing gear that can be applied to a player’s driver avatar and a customized vintage car, the De Tomaso Mangusta, all specially designed by British fashion designer and Artistic Director of Dior men’s collections, Kim Jones. This collection highlights Dior’s unique design hallmarks in a virtual space for the first time.
Combining Dior fundamentals with those of automobile sports, an entirely quilted one-piece suit recalls the graphic lines of cannage, which are produced with the “panino a panino” technique that brings the motif into relief, while the iconic DiorOblique is revealed in tone-on-tone, thanks to frame-printing.
The embroidery and placed patches celebrate the House’s emblems, from CD Diamond to the year ‘47, which can be found on the front and back of the outfit in tribute to the date of the first Dior show. These symbols are also deployed on a series of accessories, including hand-sewn gloves assembled with precision, a hand-painted helmet and Diorizon boots, rethought in the tradition of car-rally shoes.
All these items and the special edition De Tomaso Mangusta are available since August 25.
