It was one of the most important weeks in the art world, and no one wanted to miss a thing. But as you know, art isn’t confined to a little box; instead, it affects and influences all aspects of life. And the fashion industry is one of them, of course. After collaborating with powerhouses such as Daniel Arsham, Hajime Sorayama and Raymond Pettibon, Kim Jones decided to present the Fall 2020 collection in front of the newly inaugurated Rubell Museum (one of our top highlights of this year’s Miami Art Week), in a building also owned by the Rubell family, a nod to Monsieur Dior’s past as an art gallerist.
The collection itself was characterized by comfortable and sporty clothes: the models strutted down the runway in bomber jackets, shorts, cosy jumpers, parkas and bob hats. And also, in Air Jordan sneakers, the epitome of American culture and comfort. A true statement. This laid-back attitude also came in the form of wild and colourful prints like stripes and checks, but more especially python, which is seen on shirts, pants, jackets, shorts or accessories like the male version of the revamped Saddle bag, and which comes in pale blue, pink or green. The Dior Oblique monogram print also covered many of the garments – like a more classic trench coat – but especially the accessories. In all, Kim Jones presented a richly vivid collection where classic savoir-faire intertwines with casualwear, proving that couture goes beyond tailoring.
