Dior Men RTW Spring 2024
Kim Jones’s name is already part of the history of Christian Dior and other places. Five years ago, he moved here and pushed for Virgil Abloh to take over his old job, changing the way the fashion world works for good. His creativity to include everyone made a model for luxury that is now everywhere.
For this anniversary collection, Jones used his desire to mix styles to pay homage to three famous Dior designers who came before him. He talked about Yves Saint Laurent, Gianfranco Ferré, and Marc Bohan, putting together ideas from their times with his own. Christian Dior’s cannage was the design that held them all together. It was based on the woven rattan chairs that guests sat in at his first salon show in 1947.
Today, the show started off with a big bang. The wide catwalk was made of shiny gray metal tiles and the models were brought up from under the runway in a three-wide, 17-long grid of looks. Jones’s creative skills are not in question. He put polished gems (cabochons) on cardigans that were draped over the straight-legged, high-hemmed, high-skirted suits in the collection. He then put more jewels on piqué polo shirts. The buckles on tweed shoes were made to look like a bottle of Lady Dior perfume. Shoulder robes made of marled jacquard cannage knits in bright colors were worn over more of the clothing. Some semi-Safari-style coats had a bow at the chest pocket. Long, double-breasted, notch-collared tweed coats with muesli bits in the shape of a faded rattan looked like bonded dresses worn from the shoulder.
The leopard print that Dior got from Mitzah Bricard was used on Saddle bags and coats. They were worn with sports shorts made of tweed, which were later worn with tweed and piqué twinsets. Fluorescent green and orange added a trippy touch, which was emphasized by that legendary Weatherall soundtrack: Jones was the center of this Dior kaleidoscope. Or, as he put it, “It’s a collage of different designers from the archive, expressed in shape, color, form, and mood.”
