As we slowly approach summer season, carefree days filled with lounging, contemplation and relaxation, Kim Jones presents us with his new approach to the Dior Men collection…
Leaning towards neutral tones, the Dior Resort 2022 collection accentuates fluid forms. Sublime basic pieces, such as a velvet jacket or wide-legged pants, will become the hallmarks of a wardrobe that is focused on a casual look.
Jones, who is well acquainted with graphic statements, offered us leopard designs, combined with floral and Dior Oblique logos. One of the fastest growing segments of this brand - sneakers - has received special attention. Jones created references to Marc Bohan’s earlier work with new styles, such as the B30, which received a heart-shaped CD logo.
Jones, meanwhile, has hired Bret Lloyd to create this season's lookbook. Opting for a natural atmosphere that reflects the Dior Men collection, Lloyd photographed models Ludwig Wilsdorff, Malick Bodian, Thatcher Thornton and Woosang Kim. The models incorporated their youthful attitude into the whole story, which only further accentuated Jones' refined approach to tailoring.
