Dior Shirts Men: Ideas

Kim Jones, who has devoted the majority of his Dior collections to collaborations with artists and writers, approached his 75th anniversary homage to the house as a one-man show. We did a Birkenstock because we didn’t want to do a Christian Dior gardening shoe and copy it, the designer said the day before during a preview. Actually, the phrase “one-man show” isn’t entirely accurate. Jones collaborated with the ghost of Christian Dior himself as a tribute to the green-fingered founder, putting in proverbial neon lights the archive genetics that naturally underpin any collection he does.

Jones created a life-size replica of Pont Alexandre III in a tent on Place de la Concorde, just a stone’s throw from the real thing. Christian Dior’s nasal might spoke with godlike authority on the soundtrack as Jones’ interpretations of the couturier’s signature silhouettes bathed in his favourite Dior grey strolled along the bridge’s bannister. Jones worked each of the Dior icons into something that would resonate with a contemporary male customer, from the Bar jacket to the wrap coat and the cannage.

The pattern-cutting is extremely complicated, but it appears to be very simple. That’s the beauty of it, he explained, pointing to one of the jackets on his look board. Cleanliness is second only to godliness at Dior, but Jones’s time machine worked best when he deliberately chipped the polish. A series of Bar jackets and coats designed like men’s blazers with white stitching that appeared almost frayed had a deconstructed character that we don’t often see at his Dior. It was ideal for him. But, more importantly, it was refreshing to see a Dior collection that was purely Jones, to the point of becoming self-referential. If younger audiences enjoy wearing sportswear, those trousers added a more youthful element to the proceedings.

A collection like this may not receive the hype of last season’s Travis Scott collaboration the release of which has been postponed indefinitely due to the rapper’s controversy. Jones believes that young people want to learn new things. When you see pieces from the archive, Dior still looks contemporary. That’s most likely why it’s still here, and so large.” He took his bow alongside milliner Stephen Jones, who is celebrating 25 years at Dior, and reworked the founder’s beret for the models’ heads.

Dior Shirts Men


You probably live in the UK, so you’re aware that the temperature in this country is frequently teetering on the verge of being too warm for a coat and too cold for a T-shirt. People, this is the cost of living on an island governed by the whims of the Gulf Stream. Fortunately, this season’s more astute menswear designers devised the brilliant idea of making coats out of cardigans. Coats with cardigans! Coats that are actually cardigans, also known as heavy-knit cardigans. The best were at Dunhill, where creative director Mark Weston paired his nana cardies with razor-edged two-pieces, and at Jil Sander, where pastel hues were the order of the runway.
