The shoes were named the Dior 62-22 in reference to 1962, the year Vivier first designed this model while working for Dior. While the designs elaborate the processing, they also incorporate technical elements inspired by research done in the D-Air lab* labs. Modules referring to the future from the past are finalized with this touch on timeless silhouettes.

Mimosa flowers, which are processed one by one, rise by wrapping the heel of the shoe, just as if they are growing from a root. The pearl-detailed, coral-patterned version is embellished with a tassel on the nose; Another model, worked with turquoise stones on a transparent net, resembles a burst of light. All these designs, which give life to a poetic movement, reveal the high level of staff in the Dior workshops.

These dreamlike embroideries come with a hi-tech strap that fits perfectly around the wrist, just like an adjustable strap. Crafted using an ultra-lightweight neoprene, this lacing system, with fluorescent yellow stitching inspired by the motorcycle world, places the Dior 62-22 shoe on a timeline that brings heritage and innovation together.
