24/03/2023 – Mystery Ranch & Dior
Design meets functionality and durability
Mystery Ranch Backpacks and Cordura Advanced Fabrics announce collaboration with Dior.
Together they will design pieces for the Parisian fashion house's 2023 men's summer collection. Dior’s new backpacks and bags want to combine the formal with the informal, the practical with the purely aesthetic, and outdoor culture with the demands of luxury. The heart of the collection is the backpack "Gallagator". Also available are a saddle bag, a fanny pack, a wallet and a tactical belt in two color variations. The items were made from fully recycled, tough and durable fabric "Cordura re/cor RN66" (Recycled Nylon 6,6). They are embroidered with a leather emblem , which combines the seals of the two houses.
For over 20 years, Mystery Ranch has been building some of the finest load-carriage equipment for wildland firefighters, mountain and tactical professionals. The brand designs bags created for adventure, resistant to the most extreme situations, and intended, notably, for rescue services. The Cordura-material challenges the throwaway mentality in the textile industry by helping consumers understand how a single ingredient and quality craftsmanship can allow them to get the most out of their gear and clothing.
The brands have already cooperated before. For example, "Cordura re/cor RN66" was already part of the "District Series". By working with Dior, the two companies are deepening their partnership.
Pieces from the collection are available exclusively in Dior retail stores worldwide and online.
