Another season calls for another collaboration, so for winter 2021-2022, Dior and its Menswear Artistic Director, Kim Jones, established a new one with Scottish artist Peter Doig and created looks like no others. They brought back the glory of Dior’s heritage in a contemporary style, thus putting between our hands uniforms with embroideries and embellishments that reflect a masculine interpretation of couture.
On one hand, Jones drew his inspiration mainly from the masculine extravagance of ceremonial clothing. On the other hand, he worked on embodying Peter Doig’s work through fashion just like Christian Dior used to translate dreams into reality. As for the artist’s contribution, it was far from being an ordinary one as he even worked by hand on a selection of hats by Stephen Jones, lifting them with his distinguished hand-painted designs that were inspired from his connection with Dior, memories and work.
That’s not all, as Doig also created two animalistic emblems specially for Dior: the first is a dog that resembles Christian Dior’s dog Bobby, and the second one is a lion that simultaneously brings to life a character from his paintings and a masquerade costume that Pierre Cardin designed for Christian Dior back in 1949.
Dior has always cherished its passion for art and artistry and it proved that once again through its Men’s Winter 2021 collection.
