Winter in Paris creates a beautiful scenery but this winter it was completely outshined by the latest Dior Homme collection signed Kim Jones. A sneak peek into the future of what’s to come and more. #ModicReview – Dior Men’s Fall 2020
To start off, this collection is the first collection Jones has made completely on his own, it was an homage to his dear friend, jewelry designer and stylist of the 80s Judy Blame. It’s clear to see that the war against gender assigned clothes and volumes has just won a crucial battle through Jones’s collection. The fabrics used and the nonchalant addition of gloves in every look is clearly message and maybe even a provocation towards the fashion consumers to let go of passé points of view and not be scared of the “feminine”.

Even though probably the bombers, pants and extravagant coats caught your eye I advise you to focus on the details. The pins, reminiscent of the DIY punk era that Blame loved so much, to the flat caps that pay their respect to the buffalo subculture, and of course the buttons gracefully coated that gave this collection the touch of ultimate sophistication.
However the true beauty of this collection doesn’t ignite in the clothes but in the presentation. The ultimate style is effortless and that’s exactly what Kim Jones managed to showcase in this collection, he created a sublime contrast between the male working class beauty of the 80s (captured by the photographer Rei Petri) and the ultimate elegance specific to the House of Dior which he skillfully accomplished to blend together, creating a nostalgic but alluring amalgam of visions.
