In the Spring of 2018, Dior announced a major change at the head of its menswear collections: Creative Director Kris Van Assche, at the head of the house's menswear for 11 years, was to be replaced by Kim Jones. The designer, whose designs honour Christian Dior's heritage while offering modern allure, brought huge crowds to his first show in June of the same year with Victoria Beckham, Virgil Abloh, Karl Lagerfeld, Robert Pattinson, A$ap Rocky, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Takashi Murakami in the front row.
This first, spectacular show -- including the impressive 10-meter sculpture by artist Kaws -- is immortalised in this beautiful book from Rizzoli, along with the rest of his first year at Dior. The book honours the work, savoir-faire, creativity, and visionary spirit of the British designer, and notes his modern reinterpretation of tailoring with hints of streetwear. His passion for art echoes that of Christian Dior himself, who was a gallerist and collector before founding his couture house.
