Dior Takes Over Rooftop Restaurant at Selfridges, Part of Dioriviera

CLUB MED: Britain may have Brexited five months ago and fought a few battles with France about fishing rights since then, but fashion has no borders, and is open to one and all.

That’s one reason why Selfridges on Oxford Street in London is channeling the Mediterranean Sea, sun and riviera chic this summer as part of a partnership with Dior.

The store is giving Alto, its rooftop restaurant, the full Dior treatment as part of the Dioriviera beach collection pop-up at the store. The restaurant opens on June 3 and will run until Sept. 30.

The new Dior at Alto the space is adjacent to the pop-up on the store’s fifth floor, and is already booked through July.

The Dioriviera beach collection pop-up offers merchandise ranging from espadrilles to Toile de Jouy hammocks, as well as Christian Dior surfboards and Vespas.

Dior began selling a beach collection at a pop-up store in Mykonos in 2018 and has joined the ranks of luxury brands courting customers in summer holiday destinations with in-season merchandise and convenient, temporary locations.

“It’s a summer collection, linked to several vacation spots, and is now a much appreciated capsule collection,” Chiuri said. “Today it has become a constellation of simple and exquisite pieces that can be combined in endless ways.”

The products will be sold in boutiques and resort stores including Cannes, Saint Tropez, Monaco, Capri, Mykonos, Bodrum, Ibiza and Marbella as well as at the Rosewood Miramar Beach store in Montecito, Calif.

The brand has nearly a dozen pop-up stores scheduled to open in May, June and July, including seven in Asia, as well as Beverly Hills and SoHo, and, in a first, the Marina Porto in Montenegro.

Selfridges is the only retailer where the pop-up is connected to a restaurant.
