Dior is a house brimming with rich culture and iconic codes, recognised by the entirety of the fashion world. And, as the house shifted into the modern-day, the incomparable Kim Jones was entrusted with revolutionising the face of the French brand, all the while staying true to its elegant foundations, something that he has done with ease and grace over the years. And without a doubt, it was showcased in the brand’s Winter 22/23 Menswear collection.
Looking to the life and legacy of Monsieur Dior, Jones looked to open up a dialogue between the past and present as legacy and modernity intertwined to weave the foundations of this collection. And, as integral references of the Dior brand – including firey leopard print and embroidered Lily of the Valley motifs presented themselves – the true essence of the French House rippled throughout, something that was enhanced by the show’s location in the heart of the cultural hub that is Paris.
