CACTUS JACK DIOR SUMMER 2022 COLLECTION

CACTUS JACK DIOR

CHRISTIAN DIOR JOURNEYED TO AMERICA TO CELEBRATE HIS DEBUT COLLECTION IN 1947: ONE OF HIS FIRST STOPS WAS TEXAS, AN UNEX- PECTED DESTINATION WHOSE GRAND CANYONS AND HUGE DUSTY DESERTS MADE A LASTING IMPRESSION. SO TOO DID THE ETHOS AND SPIRIT OF AMERICA – IN HIS OWN WORDS, ‘THE ZEST FOR LIFE AND SELF-CONFIDENCE’. INSPIRED BY DIOR’S DEEP-ROOTED CONNECTION TO THIS AMERICAN STATE, MEN’S ARTISTIC DIRECTOR KIM JONES HAS LASSOED THIS LEGACY INTO TODAY, COLLABORATING WITH THE TEXAN-BORN RAPPER, SINGER, SONGWRITER, AND RECORD PRODUCER TRAVIS SCOTT ON THE DIOR SUMMER 2022 MEN’S COLLECTION.

THE TITLE IS CACTUS JACK DIOR, DRAWING ITS NAME FROM SCOTT’S CACTUS JACK RECORDS LABEL.

A CONVERSATION – BETWEEN TWO FRIENDS, TWO CULTURES, AND TWO DIFFERENT ERAS – RESULTS IN A COLLECTION THAT EXPLORES THE IDENTITIES OF A GROUNDBREAKING MODERN MUSICIAN AND THE HERITAGE OF ONE OF THE LEADING PARISIAN COUTURE HOUSES. CONNECTIONS ARE FOSTERED, LINKS ARE FOUND: THE SHOW TAKES PLACE IN A RECREATION OF CHRISTIAN DIOR’S CHILDHOOD ROSE GARDEN, WHICH EVOLVES INTO A CACTUS GARDEN REFLECTING SCOTT’S UPBRINGING IN HOUSTON. THE GRAND CANYONS AND DUSTY DESERTS DIOR HAD ADMIRED ARE REFLECTED IN A SUN-BLEACHED PALETTE – MAUVE, CAFÉ, PISTACHIO, PALE BLUES – THAT ALSO COLORED HIS HAUTE COUTURE GOWNS. THE DIOR TOILE DE JOUY BECOMES A “TOILE DE CACTUS” CHINÉ, DEPICTING DESERT SCENES; THE MOTIFS OF THE ORIGINAL TOILE ARE TRANSLATED TO SOUTACHE EMBROIDERIES ON SUITING.
