Robert Pattinson and his sexily dishevelled hair were in attendance at Dior’s first Winter Men’s collection, by the very talented Mr Jones! The event was held at Place Joffre on January 18, 2019, as part of Paris Fashion Week. For the presentation, Men’s Creative Director Kim Jones had his models stand still on a moving, high-tech conveyor belt catwalk, where attendees could see the garments at a steady pace. In contrast to his bright and colourful 2018 debut, (where he took over from the departing Kris Van Assche) Jones went for more muted, almost dark and murky tones that were brought to life by the colourful graphics and patterns.
Sitting front row, Robert was joined by British grime superstar Skepta, supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, actresses Lily Allen and Laura Dern, and so many more.
Sensibility of couture, a spirit of now. The Dior Men’s Winter 2019-2020 collection by artistic director Kim Jones draws on the attitudes and imprints of the House of Dior’s couture heritage – shapes, techniques, materials, ethos – then reinvents them anew. alongside this continues Kim Jones’ examination of Christian Dior the man – namely, his background as a gallerist of the avant-garde of his time. it is mirrored today in a collaboration with the artist Raymond Pettibon. All become, in essence, acts of translation: from feminine to masculine, from art to fashion, from then to now. examining the past, making it speak to the future.
