Buro 24/7 Selection
2022 marks Dior's 75th anniversary. For the fashion house's first collection of the year, Kim Jones paid homage to Christian Dior himself. Set in a tent on Place de la Concorde in Paris, the show took place atop a recreation of the famous Pont Alexandre III bridge, where models walked to a backdrop of a gorgeous skyline of a Parisian sunset. "I wanted to look at the archive, at the purity of the beginnings of the house, at its original impulse," the British designer said. "We looked at the initial collections and focused on the architecture, taking these elements and transforming them almost instinctively in a masculine way for today, always keeping the joie de vivre at the heart of Christian Dior's clothing" And so he did. As looks came out in shades reflecting the winter morning sky, past, present and future coalesced through signs and symbols central to Mr Dior. Womenswear transformed to menswear, while the old became new, across interpretations of the couturier's most characteristic designs including the Lady Dior dress, the wrap coat and the Bar jacket.
