DIOR CONTINUES TO EXPLORE THE ART WORLD WITH PETER DOIG COLLABORATION
For the Dior Winter 2021/2022 Men's collection, Kim Jones has combined luxury tailoring and silhouettes with bold accessories such as headwear, as well as sneakers and must-have jewelry and bags.
Pieces created in collaboration with British artist Peter Doig are front and center, with hats and berets by Stephen Jones, all showcased in a campaign featuring photographs by Rafael Pavarotti. Doig has also reimagined the Dior logo, which is featured on T-shirts, hoodies, and more from the range.
"Raphael Pavarotti really gave a contemporary twist to this Dior Men’s Winter 2021/2022 campaign. The photographs are like paintings, with a color palette inspired by Peter Doig’s universe. It’s a mix between modernity and poetic melancholy,” said Kim Jones about the visuals.
The recognizable Saddle Bag also returns in a selection of sizes and materials, including an oversized menswear silhouette as well as a new hard-shell crossbody iteration in opulent gold. Dior's signature Oblique logo pattern is also present throughout. Other accessories include jewelry designed by AMBUSH's Yoon Ahn – a long-term Kim Jones collaborator – and pays tribute to renaissance cameos and officers' medals with both rings and earrings, as well as brooches and more.
In terms of apparel, seasonal pieces include heavy knits and mohair jumpers are in focus, as well as tailored coats in red and beige, tight turtlenecks ideal for layering, and wide sportswear-inspired trousers. Lastly, the campaign also includes a new chunky sneaker, featuring a puffer-like upper with a rubberband lacing across.
The Dior Winter 2021/2022 Men's collection is now available for purchase both online and in-store. Take a look at the campaign above.
