This summer, Dior is launching a line of surf gear, including surfboards, called "Dior Surf Chick."

Have any of you seen any of the pieces from this collection? Some are in the April issue of Elle magazine. There are going to be pants, tanktops, dresses, hats, and all kinds of stuff: all printed with the "Dior Surf Chick" print fabric, as seen on the surfboard below. I'll post some more photos later. IMO, this stuff is pretty hideous.


$3,000

I don't think the pattern is hideous at all. In fact I think it's quite cute.
However would any real 'surf chick' be caught dead in this stuff?

It's for the wannabe surfers IMO

I don't know. We'll see when it hits the stores, I guess.

Exactly! Which is why my jaw dropped as I was flipping the pages of Elle and noticed that it said "Dior"

I'm not sure if those slippers are Dior or not, but probably not.

However, they have done some in the past

Your so right. They all look like mid-western tourists scouted on the E train. How sad. I think whats worse is that I'm sure that the Hamptons is going to be filled with this trash this summer. UGH!
