Dior shares its most cutting edge interpretation of tailoring yet with the insight of menswear expert and English fashion designer Kim Jones. Crafting a couture offering of workwear, Kim Jones’ Tailoring Creations for Dior Men’s Summer 2022 Collection fervently reinterprets the art of suiting with distinct refinement. The silhouettes are nothing short of exhilarating, channelling an unmatched contemporary perspective. For this collection, Dior stays true to its fundamental ethos, while giving the artistic director flexibility to explore a new intuition. To build further anticipation, the brand shares a number of electrifying images with the models sporting the looks and polished accessories.

Moreover, the collection aims to explore the range of menswear – from casual to formal, finding balance in simplicity. For example, the oblique tuxedo becomes a go-to piece with sportswear-inspired cuts of bold craftsmanship. The suit reworks archival designs that evolve with the brand’s perception for Summer 2022.
Jones first got his start studying graphics and photography, then later delved into fashion becoming a graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martins. A menswear designer that has had a prolonged impact on male fashion, he’s also worked for brands like Fendi and Louis Vuitton. With his minimal but edgy taste for creating imaginative men’s clothes, his work has earned him comparisons to visionaries like the legendary Karl Lagerfeld.
The versatility of Dior and Kim Jones collaboration was designed to complement men in their daily lives. The distinct range allows freedom to mix and match. Some of the more casual options include workwear-inspired pants that prioritise comfort, opting for a drawstring waist and subtle pinstripes. Another top and bottom combination elevate the streetwear influences, with a modern cargo pant that accompanies a button-down jacket.
The coat itself is a statement – with smart buttons lining the left side contrasting with a daring asymmetrical cut. We also cannot forget the lavish colourways. Ranging from muted blues to smokey greys, the articles capture indulgent hues taking luxury to the next level.
While we may reserve some of the tuxedos for a more proper occasion, Dior’s hallmark collection with Kim Jones brings an invigorating update to men’s ready-to-wear styles. Taking the most casual piece and giving it elevated components of elegance, we’re sure we could transition any of these looks from day to evening. Stoked to get these fitted for your next date?
