Kim Jones’ elegant collection is front and center as the fashion house’s couture heritage acts as a springboard for punk embellishments inspired by the late British accessories designer Judy Blame.
I loved the show we did to celebrate Judy Blame and wanted to highlight the couture aspects of the collection by recreating the set for the shootKim Jones
Dressed to impress, Thatcher Thornton, Otto Nahmmacher, Jecardi Sykes, Malick Bodian, Lucas El Bali, Ludwig Wilsdorff, and Patrick Waldron take the main stage.
The models wear pieces that combine Dior’s timeless allure with the subversive attitude of the English artist, who appropriated everyday objects – such as padlocks and safety pins – as daring accessories. House codes steeped in haute couture references are embodied in the moiré sheen of silk and embroideries, and in the arabesque scrolls of paisley.
Opera gloves complete each look, along with the Saddle and Soft Saddle bags, the latter a hobo version of the House icon -, the new double pochette with shoulder strap that redefines the Saddle’s curves, to boots that revisit the ‘’Jodhpur’’ style, these objects of desire punctuate a series of luminous images celebrating the reinvention of grace.
