Artistic director Kim Jones puts his own spin on classic men’s tailoring for Dior. Look to the details, where nothing is as it seems. Photographed by Danny Lowe and styled by Kate Hazell
The latest issue of MOJEH Men, captures the timeless elegance of Dior Men’s autumn/winter 2020 collection which draws back to the house’s couture heritage and honours the late jewellery designer and stylist Judy Blame. Model Leon Elliot wears flowing silk tunics (decorated in flamboyant prints) layered over narrow pinstriped trousers and worn under everything from trench coats to leather jackets and half-tucked knitted jumpers in a boardroom palette of beige, brown and navy — offset with a hint of baby blue.
Drawing from the Dior archives, Kim Jones tweaked signature couture cuts and embroideries and transformed them into classic menswear silhouettes with a twist. Sleeves are pushed back and worn with velvet evening gloves, boots are punctuated with the Dior monogram canvas, traditional ties are replaced with paisley-printed scarves and Judy Blame influences are scattered throughout the collection; from safety-pin adorned necklaces, to city-slick coats decorated in zips and embellished chains hung from trousers. The Dior Men’s AW20 collection is a collision of aristocratic aesthetics mixed with punk references: the lord of the manor is cooler than ever before.
