Dior Mens Returns to London for Pre-Fall Show

Dior Mens Returns to London for Pre-Fall Show

Upcoming Show Represents an Exciting Homecoming for Artistic Director Kim Jones

Dior has announced a show in London on December 9th for its Men’s Pre-fall 2021 collection. Designed by Kim Jones, Dior Men’s Pre-fall 2021 collection is a homage to the work of artist Kenny Scharf. Scharf was a crucial player in the East Village art scene in New York City in the ’80s, alongside fellow artists Basquiat and friend Keith Haring. Jones also drew on Scharf’s work for his Fall 2021 collection, which was an exquisite tapestry of tailored sophistication and irreverent pop-art psychedelia.

The upcoming show represents Dior’s first major event in London since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and a homecoming of sorts for Jones, who is the Artistic Director of menswear for the French fashion house. Jones was born in London and currently resides there; this will be the first time he has shown a collection in his hometown since 2003.
