Discover Dior Homme‘s Spring Summer 2019 advertising campaign featuring Prince Nikolai, Valentin Caron, Malick Bodian, Romaine Dixon, and Lukas Gomann captured by the legendary fashion photographer Steven Meisel. In charge of styling was Melanie Ward, with art direction from Ronnie Cooke Newhouse. Beauty is work of hair stylist Guido Palau, and makeup artist Pat Mcgrath. Film director Jackie Nickerson. Digital photographer Annie Powers. This is the first Dior Homme campaign under Kim Jones‘ artistic direction.
“In sequences of soft and sharp shades of pink, this wardrobe unfolds in bright tones, illuminated with yellow, blending the codes of haute couture, tailoring and sportswear, reinforcing the dialogue between art and fashion, heritage and daring. Iconic motifs held dear by the founding couturier are tweaked with a sense of nonchalant humor. The bee, toile de jouy, the dior oblique canvas, or cannage in laser-cut form, are freely employed, reinvented and re-visited with the subtle mastery of re-appropriation that is one of Kim Jones’ signatures.“
