How Kim Jones kick-started Dior again

British designer Kim Jones holds the position of creative director of Dior for the third year already. In 2018, he replaced the Belgian designer Kris Van Assch, under whose leadership, let's be honest, the men's Dior collections became slightly tired. In recent years, nothing but black suits have been waiting for us, here and there a fur coat or a piece of streetwear, which didn't really stand out among many others.

In 2018, however, there was a sharp turnaround. Kim Jones took the position of the creative director and things started to happen! The catwalk was suddenly dominated by animal patterns, metallic shades, gloss, berets and even velvet gloves. Kim Jones definitely brings new energy and ideas to this fashion house. And this year is no different. He also hired the Scottish artist Peter Doig, who's lived in Trinidad for almost 20 years.

Connecting the past with the present

The new Dior collection combines inspiration, drawn from the heritage and history of the fashion house, with extravagance. Kim Jones brings trendy uniforms with embroidery and embellishments, inspired mainly by the Académie des Beaux-Arts (male interpretation of couture). The inspiration by army style is obvious at first glance, and in addition to uniforms, the collection also includes trousers with stripes on the sides or trousers tucked into shoes, a camouflage print - in a new and more luxurious design, or badges.

Two animal characters exclusively for Dior

And how did the collaboration with Peter Doig affect the collection? He himself came up not only with the motifs that were used, but also participated in the selection of wool felt hats by Stephen Jones, to which he added captivating hand-painted patterns inspired by his own work, memories and connection with the fashion house of Dior. He also created two special characters especially for the FW2021 collection. The image of Christian Dior's dog Bobby and the image of a lion, which at the same time resembles characters from Doig's own paintings, as well as a masquerade costume created by the designer Pierre Cardin for Christian Dior in 1949.

Under the dominion of colors

The collection is designed in shades of navy and muted blue, brown, gray and nude, which complement the vibrant colors expressing the joy of life - green, orange or bright yellow. It is, after all, along with gray, the color of the year 2021. One more reason to introduce it into your wardrobe! The models are also decorated with artistic details, such as brushstrokes, which were created using embroidery or knitwear and in some cases are even hand-painted.

If to arms, then only elegantly

I have to admit that the autumn men's collection by Dior actually isn't that bad this year. You're shocked hearing something like this from me, aren't you? Don't worry, I'm surprised myself. Maybe I'm kind of soft due to PMS, but I really have to give this collection a thumbs up. But of course, a few missteps can be found in there too...

Military pajamas

One can't help but notice that most of the collection is a bit in tune with the military vibe. I don't mind it, although of course green things are terrible, but I have somehow started to acknowledge the camouflage trend over the years. Not that I would wear something like that myself, but I stopped saying out loud that those who wear it should experience a real war firsthand, because most men these days wouldn't survive it.

In any case, military cuts are not bad. Like this one, there's a relatively nice uniform under this gold-stitched coat, although it reminds me more of a pajamas, albeit with the rank of a cadet. So this guy looks like he wants to have one more cookie before bed, and he's just making a quick run to the store to get it. Of course, one cannot fail to praise the beret, I love those, both on men and women.

What else is there to say about this one, right? If you look at archival footage from the Velvet Revolution, such similar coats, albeit from worse materials, were worn by those gentlemen who used to beat up students and all those who were just a little against the regime during interrogations. A camouflage jacket and high boots give it an extra touch. A touch of inhumanity. Given that the French know noting about our history, I understand that when designing this collection, they weren't bothered if perhaps the model could trigger the horror of the last century in someone.

A psychedelic seizure

The coat is good, the pants are good, but the longer I look at this dude, the worse I feel. Maybe the sweater was supposed to depict abstract art, but it hurts my eyes and head. I try not to look at something that causes me psychedelic seizures, even the lion on the cap couldn't save me.

When the sun doesn't shine, the coat does

This is not the first time I've seen beautiful yellow coats, jackets or raincoats in foreign collections. Yellow is a really awesome color, for summer. But imagine that such radiant tops are worn by a great amount of people in the gray autumn... and you always have to wear sunglasses so the glow doesn't burn your retinas. In addition, I can't help but feel that all designers are copying the autumn coat from Lidl...

Man in Black

This is divine, from top to bottom. You can simply never go wrong with black, neither on men nor on women. In addition, turtlenecks are sexy, although men rarely want to wear them. The only thing that bothers me is the handbag. A man just shouldn't wear handbags, that's why he should give it to me quickly!

The Evening Star has a brother

Remember the fairy tale The Prince and the Evening Star? They forgot to tell us that the beautiful Libuška Šafránková, as the Evening Star, probably has a forgotten brother who is also trying to merge with the night sky. Except, looking at him makes me sleepy...

But in the end, I have to say, that I more or less liked this collection, so far the most.
