Designed by men’s Artistic Director Kim Jones, Dior presents its Spring 2022 menswear collection.
A reflection of classic Dior codes, the collection reimagines statement pieces from the House’s archives to keep alive the legacy of the Dior.
Inspiration is taken from the brand’s rich heritage from as far back as 1947; the debut of the Maison. Leopard motifs, shown in that first collection, are woven or knitted and waists are belted. Floral patterns reference Christian Dior’s love of gardens and nature, while graphic insignia drawn from the 1960s, created by Marc Bohan, stylize ‘CD’ as a love heart. Gentle and subtle, these archival references are embedded in pieces that speak, inherently, to the attire of a modern man – the Dior of now.
Jones redefines his own work for the brand reworking his signature hybrids of tailoring and sportswear. There is a clear mood of transformation and change.
Shearling Bomber jackets feature contrasting colours on the inside, while lightweight outerwear pieces are worn with the iconic Dior Saddle Bag. A muted colour palette of grey, pink and earthy tones is inspired by Christian Dior’s beloved country home.
Materials are hyper-luxurious and tactile. The Kumo embroidery – meaning “cloud” in Japanese reveals a macro version of the Dior Oblique motif.
Other must-have bags come in the form of the Dior Lingot line and are presented in various sizes including as a travel bag. Inspired by the ateliers of 30 Avenue Montaigne the “Atelier Christian Dior” signature features as an ode to the craft of couture, reflected in pieces that combine utility and luxury, paying homage to French ceremonial and industrial uniforms and classic workwear shapes.
Tailoring is relaxed as the gap between formalwear and sportswear is closed. Tailored looks are worn with the new Dior B30 sneakers or soft moccasins in precious leathers.
