The Dior Summer 2023 men’s collection by Kim Jones strives to explore the importance of private spheres and how they provide inspiration and guidance in the realm of creativity. From Paris to Granville, the birthplace of Christian Dior, to Charleston (in Sussex), where the artist Duncan Grant worked and lived, the collection takes us to a sort of fantasy land where personal stories are intertwined throughout the défilé, connecting past, present and future. New forms of elegance are inspired by the sketches and post-impressionist works as well as the life of the British painter, while cannage, the house’s iconic fundamental, is boldly deployed as subtle quilting on coats. The emblematic bar jacket is presented in semi-transparent silk organza, revealing a virtuoso construction that exalts the expert craftsmanship of the ateliers.
