While Alexander Wang’s show in the farflung Brooklyn Navy Yards on a particularly blizzardy night in February worked many a last nerve, he may have been on to something. It would seem someone at Dior, most likely Raf Simons, has warmed to the idea of using the venue for the house’s pre-spring show — and it would indeed be much warmer in May.
Needless to say, Dior isn’t leaving anything to chance. According to WWD, they’ll provide a round-trip, door-to-door car and ferry service from 34th Street and the FDR Drive. Of course, there will still be those who bemoan having to trek to 34th Street.
