He may be far from his British roots, but Kim Jones is more than at home in the world of couture. For his SS19 debut at Dior, the seasoned designer reinterprets the Parisian house’s DNA through original design codes.
Jones’ appointment as artistic director marks a new chapter for Dior Homme, and SS19 shows his street-inflected vision come to life.
Completely rose-tinted; Jones was inspired by Christian Dior and his love of gardening for SS19. Taking suiting in blush tones down the runway while Hedi Slimane’s bee motif makes a comeback, the designer laid the groundwork for his time at Dior Homme; marking his core basics with atelier-approved branding and timeless colour combos.
