The backpack brand Mystery Ranch Backpacks and tear resistant fiber specialist Cordura Advanced Fabrics have started collaborating at the new Dior by Mystery Ranch capsule for the Parisian house's summer 2023 men's collection.
Partnering for the first time with the two specialists, Dior’s new backpacks and bags are setting a new direction for the maison willing to recall a younger target by combining the formal with the informal, the practical with the purely aesthetic, outdoor culture with the demands of luxury and a desire to offer more sustainable products.
The new collaboration collection features different models including a reinterpreted version of Dior’s Saddle Bag, the Gallagator backpack, along with a Belt Pouch, a Wallet, and a Tactical Belt. All models are available in two colorways, featuring Cordura Re/Cor RN66, a resistant and durable fabric entirely made with a GRS certified Recycled Nylon 6,6 fabric. Completing each style of the collection is an embroidered leather crest intermingling the seal of the two Houses.
The backpack brand has been partnering with Cordura Advanced Fabrics for long across all product categories. “Urging the outdoor industry to “Expect More, Waste Less”, Cordura Re/Cor RN66 fabric challenges the throw-away mentality within the textile industry, making it easier for consumers to understand how one ingredient and quality craftsmanship can allow them to get the most from their gear and apparel. For those who demand durability, there's no better choice,“ said Cindy McNaull, brand business development director, Cordura.
The collection is available starting from February 16, 2023, exclusively in Dior retail locations worldwide and on dior.com.
