Kim Jones is considered one of the world's best menswear designers of the moment. Previously at the helm of Louis Vuitton, he previewed his first-ever men's collection as Creative Director of the Dior. In his own words, this is what his first Dior show meant to him:
“A fashion show in Tokyo is the best way to present and celebrate my first Dior pre-fall men’s show. Japan is a magical country that I know quite well and that I love particularly for its incredible and unique culture, history and nature, which have always been very fascinating and a great source of inspiration to me.”
The futuristic look and feel really turned this into an escapist sci-fi thriller that had the modern notion of the future. Famed Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama lent his own vibes to this massively cool show from his 1983 art book Sexy Robot. One couldn't help feel the resurgence of 80s through Sorayama's robot who literally took center stage as a monolith at the show.
