True to form, Kim Jones once again blurs the line between art and fashion in Dior Men's Fall/Winter 2021 collection in his new collaboration with artist Peter Doig. Unlike the Maison's previous collection with artist Kenny Scharf for Pre-Fall 2021, its newest menswear release does not employ graphic prints or zodiac symbolism. Instead, the collection relies on a bold color palette (deep purple, butter yellow, bright orange, etc.) and well-structured outerwear pieces.

Beginning his career in the early '90s, Doig is known for his abstract landscapes that tackle subjects in pop culture. His dynamic, narrative-style paintings have an almost water-like effect to them, giving the stationary image a feeling of moment. Jones utilized this element of Doig's work by simulating it onto moving bodies, letting Doig's aesthetic speak for itself while also adding that final thrid dimension.

To announce the collaboration, Jones shared a photo of the event's invitation on Instagram which featured one of Doig's works. The painting was a nod to one of the fashion industry's greatest and most recent loses. Jones wrote in the caption, "The invitation is a painting of Christian Dior in an outfit designed and made by Pierre Cardin for a masked ball 1949." Doig, himself, also took to social media to express his excitement for the collection by posting a painting of his of the runway show.
