The latest one-minute episode, slated to go live on Dior’s Web site on Friday, features a trio of models dashing through pathways and hedges as well as palace corridors to snippets of “Strange Love” by Depeche Mode. An accompanying print campaign is slated to break in June issues, starting with Harper’s Bazaar Hong Kong and French and Japanese Vogues.
