Fall 2019 Men's Fashion Show

The Impression Review Score

Carine Roitfeld, Robert Pattinson, Timothée Chalamat and others flocked to Plateau Joffre to see the Dior FW19 menswear collection, the second men’s collection by Kim Jones for the atelier.

Jones, who stepped into his role of Artistic Director of Dior Men’s in early 2017, is illustrating a modern version of the atelier, pulling inspiration from the House of Dior and Christian Dior himself. The Fall/Winter 2019 collection references Monsieur Dior and the atelier’s heritage through draping techniques like moulage that reference Dior’s couture works, and colors such as pale blue, mauve, pearl grey, and midnight blue and black that are described as “archetypal Dior.”

The past is simply referenced for the collection that marries modernity with archival pieces. Jones injected his practical and utilitarian sensibilities to the House by merging couture fabric such as cashmere, silk-satin and fur with tech fabrics and utilizing nylon to mimic silk.

In addition, Jones collaborated with artist Raymond Pettibon on select pieces that resemble classic art pieces like the Mona Lisa and draw inspiration from Dior. The multicolor artworks appear on knitwear and jacquards, as hand-embroidered works and as prints.

 

  • Models did not walk the show, but rather stood on a nearly 250-foot conveyor belt that spanned the length of the venue.
  • Dior first used the panthére animal print used in this collection in his first collection in 1947.
  • Matthew Williams of Alyx is credited in the show notes after Yoon Ahn of Ambush who made jewelry for the collection.
