Artistic Director: Kim Jones
For the Dior Men’s Fall/Winter 2020-2021 collection, Artistic Director of Dior men’s collections Kim Jones draws on the Dior archives and iconography to celebrate the Maison’s timeless elegance.
The collection is a journey to the heart of haute couture and a tribute to Judy Blame, a pivotal figure in the 1980s London post-punk scene. “Her love of couture was an inspiration to us all,” says Kim Jones.
The silhouettes explore the values of excellence and authenticity, evoking fashion not just as a finished product, but as a creative process. Clothes, shoes and accessories sport engineered zips that highlight details and the cut.
The Dior Oblique canvas is revisited in beaded embroideries, while the Dior logo is pierced with a safety pin, a nod to Judy Blame’s DIY-inspired style. Opera gloves complete each look and buttons covered with fabric – like those on the iconic Bar jacket – appear alongside a panorama of memories: shades of gray and blue, plays on volume, pleats and draping that reference flou and tailoring techniques.
“Spotlight on Men’s Fall/Winter 2020-2021
collections from LVMH Maisons.”
Drawing inspiration from the toile de jouy motif that decorated Christian Dior’s first boutique — called “colifichets” — a new “Toile de Judy” motif was designed specially for the Men’s Fall/Winter 2020-2021 collection in collaboration with the Trust Judy Blame Foundation, based on the artist’s revolutionary work.
