Evoking the glamorous image of race car driving from the 60s to the 80s, this specially conceived virtual capsule by Dior x The Gran Turismo 7
As avid car enthusiasts, the passion for anything automotive doesn’t stop once you leave the race or car show. Being an obsession more than a hobby, we surround ourselves with 24/7 car content to fuel the addiction of speed and performance. The creative team at Playstation have continued to play a key role with iconic video game series like The Gran Turismo, in which players hold the opportunity to drive practically any car of their dreams. Celebrating the upcoming release of The Gran Turismo 7, fashion experts at Dior are proud to collaborate with game developers on a virtual capsule collection. The Dior capsule collection features a virtual race hemet, suit, gloves, boots, and special-edition car that will be featured in The Gran Turismo 7 game.

The amount of thought that went into the design of Dior’s custom race fit is astonishing, incorporating meticulous details such as the Dior oblique motif, CD diamond initials, and a ‘Christian Dior Atelier Avenue Montaigne’ patch. Along with a vibrant grey and yellow outfit that pays homage to early 60s and 70s French motorsports, Dior presents an extremely limited edition De Tomaso Mangusta to the game series. The cream-colored Mangusta is a nod to the Dior Parfums ads from the 60s to the 80s which perfectly compliments the character’s look. As a final touch, the number “47” appears on the driver’s silhouette and the race car, as a tribute to the year 1947 which was the year of Christian Dior’s first trail-blazing fashion show. The Dior capsule collection is set to be unveiled on August 25th via Playstation. View all of the current De Tomaso examples for sale on duPont REGISTRY by clicking on the link below.
