Designer Kim Jones presented DIOR MEN’S Fall 2022 Collection yesterday in London, with the runway preluded by the recreation of the library of rare first editions and documents held in Jones’ own London home. The Fall 2022 collection is a celebration of ceaseless imagination. Menswear artistic director was inspired by an epochal figure, author Jack Kerouac, a man who shifted writing as seismically as Christian Dior changed fashion.
The collection introduces a marriage of the DIOR heritage and couture technique with the technology of the future, inspired by the forward-thinking ethos that charachterized mid-century America: technical silks and recycled nylons combined with embroideries and a gentle palette of pastels, punctuated with Dior gray, drawn from the house’s archive.
The show unfurls as a story itslef: The decor reinvents the legendary manuscript of ‘On The Road’, a continuous 120-foot scrool. It is a fitting backdrop to a collection dedicated to Kerouac’s life and literature – and to the legacy of innovation shared by both himself and the House of the Dior. – from Dior
