Described as his “first-time one-man-show,” Kim Jones has decided to fully design the Fall/Winter collection by himself, without the help of outside collaborations, as he has previously worked with artists and musicians, for example. However, we could still say that this is a collaboration with Jones and the ghost of Christian Dior himself, as this collection is about bridging the past, present and the future, by being staged literally on the Pont Alexandre III in Paris, through the archives of both designers.

This is about dualities and synergies, from changing feminine archival silhouettes to making them more masculine, from Femme Fleur to Homme Fleur. It's a homage to the 75th anniversary of the house, it's an ongoing conversation with Christian Dior, where both their legacies intertwine, from the traditional greys and pastel that meet with Jones' British masculine tailoring with a touch of the French haute couture touch through the new rough-hewn, men's bar silhouette.

Contemporary sportswear is seen in a formal and elegant sense, technical materials borrowed from outerwear, mixing utility, formal and informal with a sense of ease and Dior's essential joie de vivre. Other heritage signs and symbols that permeate the collection are the star, the rose, the cannage, the leopard, the lily of the valley and the chain, seen in the jewellery, done with the help of Victoire de Castellane and Yoon Ahn from Ambush. Extraordinary accessorising followed by Dior's latest collaboration with Birkenstock sandals, as well as a new version of the Saddle Bag and the Corolle Tote, followed by the ever-present presence of milliner Stephen Jones, who celebrates 25 years working for the house. A beautiful way to celebrate Dior in all its glory, through past, present and future collaborations, co-workers and designs.
