DIOR PRESENTS THE SUMMER 2022 MEN’S COLLECTION

 

CHRISTIAN DIOR JOURNEYED TO AMERICA AS EARLY AS 1947; ONE OF HIS FIRST DESTINATIONS ON THIS ODYSSEY WAS TEXAS, WHOSE EXTRAORDINARY LANDSCAPES MADE A LASTING IMPRESSION. INSPIRED BY DIOR’S DEEP-ROOTED CONNECTION TO THIS AMERICAN STATE, KIM JONES HAS LASSOED THIS LEGACY INTO TODAY, COLLABORATING WITH THE TEXAN-BORN RAPPER, SINGER, SONGWRITER, AND RECORD PRODUCER TRAVIS SCOTT. TAILORING, REFLECTING THE SAVOIR-FAIRE OF THE HOUSE, UNDERPINS THE COLLECTION, WITH THE TAILLEUR OBLIQUE LENDING A TOUCH OF FORMALITY TO CONTRAST WITH THE SPORTSWEAR ELEMENTS. TRAVIS SCOTT HAS REIMAGINED THE DIOR LOGOTYPE VIA A SERIES OF GRAPHICS, WHILE THE ACCESSORIES FEATURE A REVISITED DIOR OBLIQUE MOTIF. THE SADDLE BAG IS ALSO REINTERPRETED WITH A SOLID STIRRUP HANDLE, WHILE A NEW DIOR SNEAKER EVOKES THE SKATEBOARDING UNIVERSE. EXPLORING AMERICA THROUGH DIOR’S EYES LEADS BACK TO FINE ART: IN A SERIES OF WORKS, KIM JONES, TRAVIS SCOTT AND THE HOUSE OF DIOR COLLABORATED WITH CELEBRATED US ARTIST GEORGE CONDO ON A SERIES OF HAND-PAINTED SHIRTS, IN A VIRTUOSO ALLIANCE OF CREATIVE VISIONS.
