Following its success at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from 2017 to 2018 and its visits to London and New York in 2019, the touring exhibition dedicated to the life and legacy of French designer Christian Dior is finally coming to Tokyo this winter. Opening at the Museum of Contemporary Art on December 21, this mammoth retrospective will celebrate 75 years of Dior couture with a collection of timeless dresses and iconic designs from the post-war era to now. There will be a lot to take in, but the exhibition will thankfully run until May 28 2023 to give couture lovers ample time to view the collection.
There was a time when 2023 seemed impossibly far into the future, but now we’re just around the corner from a new year of exciting concerts, festivals and long-awaited openings. Those of you who have been waiting to visit Japan for the past two years are well aware that there are countless new attractions to check out from the life-sized moving Gundam in Yokohama to Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan.
Tokyo is only just beginning to gain momentum, however, with a host of dazzling events and openings slated to come next year, too. Kicking things off this winter, we’ve got Cirque du Soleil returning to Tokyo for the first time in five years, followed by the reopening of teamLab Borderless in time for cherry blossom season. As the old saying goes: you haven’t seen anything yet.
