Dior have released a video exclusively with i-D, featuring models Sasha Dmitrieva and Lis Van Velthoven strolling to an industrial tech beat and reposing in the long shadows of the Louvre's Cour Carrée in Paris. The film, by Vincent van de Wijngaard, was shot after Raf Simons's spring/summer 15 ready-to-wear show for the French house and features the out-of-the-runway collection along with the very first Diorama bags that they presented during the show. The track is Loss (Regis Version) by Ike Yard, and recalls Raf's love of rave. Van de Wijingaard, who has worked for Vogue Hommes International, GQ Style and Interview has created a clean, modern film in full keeping with Simons's vision of the brand, representing simple beauty, but a certain darkness and edge too. The clip also gives the viewer an idea of how contemporary women might work their Dior. The Diorama bags are now in boutiques worldwide.
