Shot by legendary fashion photographer Steven Meisel and incorporating a seamless aura of sophistication, Dior’s Autumn/Winter 2019 collection was made in collaboration with American artist Raymond Pettibon, whose iconic pieces include a galore of revered covers – i.e., Sonic Youth – and more. The AW19 intake, proposed by artistic director Kim Jones, evokes the iconic work of Christian Dior – the designer – himself, seeking to reinterpret Dior’s founder first ever vocation as an artist, critic, all-things pretty fervent by fronting bold and refreshing surface patterns. Tailoring is, undeniably, poise-centric, venturing the prime splendour of haute couture, finely brought by the elegant draping and weaved silk detailing, donned with utility and structural styling propositions.
Erudition and grace for the sublime man epitomised by Jones? There’s simply no doubt.
