When news broke back in March that Kim Jones would be appointed as Artistic Director of Dior Homme, both members of the fashion elite and underground streetwear devotees alike rejoiced. Jones, as we know, is often credited as the man who brought streetwear influences to Vuitton during his time there, a modus operandi that has been picked up and amplified by his successor, Virgil Abloh.
But come Saturday, June 23, all focus will be on the house of Christian Dior. The quintessentially French label has held a stellar track record when appointing Men's Artistic Directors in the past, among them Kris Van Assche and Hedi Slimane. Both established their signature takes on the Dior sensibility, bo doubt Jones will do the same, times 10.
