Kim Jones thought the royal wedding would be a better place to showcase the first official Dior Homme Design rather than the runway.
According to a 2018 Vogue report, Beckham wore a charcoal gray wool morning coat and pants with a higher vest to the royal ceremony at Windsor Castle. The dapper ensemble was accessorized with a gold pocket watch and brown leather derby shoes. Fitted exactly to Beckham’s specifications, the suit had a slim, modern cut that reflects both Beckham’s own relaxed style and the street-inspired references Jones has cited in his own collections for years.
Jones took to Instagram to post a photo of Beckham, who happily debuted his first-ever creation for his new job. Jones choose to caption it “Thanks mate!” and added a heart emoji. We can expect to see the kind words to continue throughout June. In June Jones will present his first full Dior Homme collection at men’s Paris Fashion Week.
You can expect some very luxurious and well-crafted pieces from Kim Jones Dior Homme
According to a 2018 Vogue report, The craftsmanship that goes into Dior garments is exceptional: of course, on the womenswear side there are the couture petits mains, but the menswear has its own tailoring ateliers dedicated to that specific craft. At Louis Vuitton, Jones had the opportunity to embrace the world’s finest techniques and fabrications – mother of pearl sliced thinly and woven into fabric; viçuna used for the most exquisitely indulgent overcoats; pearls pulled from their oysters and hand-dyed before returned to the shell for a unique marbling effect. While Jones is renowned for his branded appeal, he equally understands the power of quiet luxury. So we’ll start saving now for some of those extravagant statement pieces.
You can also expect some collaborations. Kim Jones was responsible for the collection of Louis Vuitton and Supreme.
So we can’t imagine the incredible collaborations he will create with Dior Homme and other modern designers.
“The most modern thing to do right now is for designers to collaborate with each other,” said to Jones to executive fashion news editor of British Vogue Olivia Singer last year. “When you work together you learn from each other, you find different things and you create new, interesting projects.”
