The Dior Men’s fall ‘24/25 collection was a delicate dance of poetry and commercial dexterity.
For his show on Friday, Artistic Director Kim Jones drew inspiration from seminal ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev—as portrayed by Jones’ late uncle Colin Jones, himself a dancer turned photographer.
While dance derived tropes alongside Nureyev favorites were interpreted directly by way of more ‘editorial’ zip-front jumpsuits, Jones also proved a master of nuance, integrating the foundations of the theme into garments with a much broader appeal.
Case in point, one of the collection’s zip-up knitwear pieces which was also worn by Lewis Hamilton front row.
Overall the runway felt less streetwear inflected than recent seasons and doubled down on the tailoring beloved by Dior ambassadors, K-Pop sensation Tomorrow X Together, aka TXT, present en masse front row for the first time since their appointment in August.
“Tomorrow X Together are the perfect ambassadors for Dior. They have a great attitude and style and they look great in their custom stage outfits”Dior artistic director Kim Jones.
