Kim Jones, artistic director of Dior men's collection, has just presented the while continuing to celebrate Dior's 75th anniversary Kim Jones, artistic director of the men's line, presented his f/w 20234 collection designed with the aim to create a continuum between past, present and future – with very much the future in mind.

The Dior fall 2023 menswear collection was presented within a show held in Giza, Egypt, at the setting of the sun behind the great pyramid.

 



In the collection, a gradation of greys gives way to the palette of the desert – from daytime to nightfall, while pointing out the inspiration drawn from the observation of galaxies transposed in engineered prints.

 



 

As part of the collection Jones has also dreamed up a new capsule guest-designed collection with the brand Denim Tears — founded in 2019 by Tremaine Emory. Unveiled within this exclusive event, along with the maison's inventiveness, the line celebrates the importance of its creative dialogues.

While underlining its expert focus on pattern cutting, the collection absorbs the lessons of its past heritage and applies them to the present and future and expresses them through metamorphosing the feminine to the masculine in tailoring; uniting couture finishing with technical practicalities in outerwear; archival embroideries take on a notion of futuristic armory; leather goods reinterpret luxury into a new, organic utility; footwear flirts with futurism, but with a grounding in traditional savoir-faire united with excellence in contemporary, technical know-how.

By recreating a stratification of history, clothes are layered textures, outerwear and accessories swathe and provide cocooning protection.

 



Movement, ease and fluidity are key and express themselves through purposeful technical jacquard transparencies that reveal rigorous underpinnings in tailoring and outerwear.

 



A series of new, crinoline wool demi-kilts – originating from the bias pleated skirt of a Dior archival dress from the fifties called "Bonne Fortune" – and become at once a nod to most ancient men’s garments and part of a new technical language as an over-garment.

Bags and shoes unite, working with the cannage and the diamond codes in a mix of contemporary techniques and textures, from high-frequency neoprene paneling and injection molding to anodized metal finishes.
