Kim Jones took us back to different eras. From the era when Christian Dior was known for making classic suits to the Dior by John Galliano era and beyond. Together with American artist Daniel Arsham, whose job it is to anticipate future archeology. Meaning what people will make of the cultural traces the previous generations leave behind. So, the John Galliano references that were strongly present on the Dior Men runway, were the results of Kim Jones digging through the Dior archive. You could tell by the signature newspaper print on clothes and manbags.
What we won’t forget about Dior Homme’s SS20 collection is the on point tailoring. One of our favorite Kim Jones pieces were the suits with the diagonal satin sash. A technique from the women’s couture side of the house.
