Christian Dior presented its spring summer '23 men's collection at Paris Men's Fashion Week
Through the dior summer 2023 men’s line, 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 monsieur Dior – Tocharleston* (in Sussex), where the artist Duncan Grant worked and lived. The artistic director of Dior’s men’s collections invites us to embark upon a fascinating journey through space and time. Once again, 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, under lining more than ever the link – at once unchanging and constantly in motion – that unites fashion and art.
