At 14:00 sharp, the show starts digitally on the maison’s online platforms. What we are facing is a traditional show, without guests, with the models that follow one another with incessant going to the rhythm of techno music that acts as a soundtrack for the show.
The immense space that hosts the show is dominated by a series of mammoth contemporary art sculptures which, as in a ideal conversation between fashion and art, dialogue with theand works by the British painter Peter Doig, which we find in the form of prints, motifs and embroidery in the looks of the new collection Dior men fall winter 2021 2022.
L’military inspiration, clearly at the basis of the design of the collection, is mixed with Peter Doig’s bright colors and pictorial motifs. The new wardrobe, conceived by Kim Jones for autumn / winter 2021 2022, is made up of many classics of Dior menswear, seasoned with a skilful balance with seasonal ingredients. That is how the camouflage design becomes a colored ink blot pattern, the tailored garments are embellished with borders reminiscent of army insignia, Peter Doig’s paintings take shape in jacquard knit pullovers and printed shirts, military stars shine on pins and buttons.
Also the accessories echo the motifs that inspired the new collection Dior man fall winter 2021 2022, on stage at Paris Fashion Week. The famous Saddle bag is proposed in an arty-camouflage pattern, the high dark leather boots recall those of an army ready to leave, while, on the head, a new one Basque is the hat of the season, the perfect synthesis between military style and the Parisian artist look.
