With Dior’s artistic director Kim Jones set to launch its pre-fall ’19 collection, it only makes sense for the brand to celebrate in style with a good ol’ pop-up store. And what better place to host the party than in Hong Kong’s Landmark, the hub of all life-changing shopping experiences? Entering the pop-up store, you’ll admire sakura cherry blossom prints adorned across the facades and floors. And, as you explore the pod-like spaces of the rooms – inspired by the retro-futuristic set in Tokyo last year – you’ll find yourself staring at a five-meter high robot dedicated to artist Hajime Soroyama. Topping it off is an onsite printing atelier for your own customized T-shirt. The store opens from 27 April to 7 May 2019.
