A masterpiece of extraordinarily labor-intensive hand beading, the reinterpretation of this arresting work by collaborating artist Raymond Pettibon that opened the Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's show Friday encapsulated much of what @MrKimJones wished to convey in this powerful lineup. This one vest combined couture excess with menswear tailoring, decorative luxury with the utilitarian, tradition with modernity, and a questioning of male and female identity that taps into a dialogue currently taking place around the world.

One of the main highlights of the Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's collection by @MrKimJones is its featured collaboration with American contemporary artist Raymond Pettibon. Here, one of our petites mains carefully pins the separate pieces of the extraordinary shirt that closed the show. Depicting the artist's work "No Title (She Must Know...)", it took 15 people 1600 hours to embroider entirely by hand!

With the Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's collection, @MrKimJones rewrote the men's formalwear rulebook, introducing dramatic drapery usually associated with the grandest gestures of haute couture. Here, one of the tailors in our men's ateliers meets the challenge of subverting the silhouette of the suit by adapting its most traditional methods of construction.

Step inside the House's menswear ateliers, located right next to the design studio, where our phenomenally talented tailors explain some of the work that went into the highly innovative and yet resolutely tradition-based construction of the Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's collection by @MrKimJones. ⠀

No matter the collection, no matter the house, the cutting out of a marked pattern piece is one of the most fundamental steps in the making of a garment. For the Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's collection, @MrKimJones was able to turn to the extraordinary savoir-faire possessed by the House's very own on-site menswear ateliers, an almost unheard of resource today.

As part of the Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's collection collaboration with Raymond Pettibon, @MrKimJones utilized one of the American artist's works from 2010 - 'No Name (She Must Know)' - across a range of designs, from a hand-beaded shirt to a blouson and, here, as a key fob whose construction also references our iconic #DiorSaddle bag.

The Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's collection by @MrKimJones is a visually dense experience. Details of all kind abound, testifying to the curiosity and imagination of our menswear Creative Director. His exploration of the House's heritage results in an infinite number of revivals, reworkings and juxtapositions. Here, the savoir-faire of the men's tailoring ateliers meets glossy materials more typically associated with couture, which in turn meet one of the animal motifs that have been a part of the Dior story since that very first collection in 1947.

Is this Cookie, @MrKimJones?... The Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's collection, with its union of the utilitarian and the luxurious, features a selection of clever pouches that can be added to the straps of larger bags, as and when the need for compartmentalized carrying arises - or simply because you like how they look! The effect is as whimsical and addictive as it is ultimately practical!

As part of the rewriting of the traditional construction and materials of menswear in the Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's collection, and the fusing of respected heritage with fashion-forward innovation, @MrKimJones took classic brogued shoes and integrated techno fabric gaiters to create hybrid boots totally make for walking.

The Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's collection by @MrKimJones represents a bonanza for bag lovers everywhere. Participating in the soft color story that wafts throughout, and reflecting the adoption of techno reinterpretations of more traditional couture-type fabrics, this backpack has a subtle satiny sheen and boasts the signature cannage motif, while its front pocket is derived from the revived and adopted #DiorSaddle bag.

Having introduced the #DiorSaddle bag for men last June, for this Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's collection @MrKimJones has developed it further into a key component of the collaborative exchange he had with the American artist Raymond Pettibon, as the iconic bag is daubed with glacier blue paint, while its buckle represents the continuation of a collaboration with Matthew Williams who designed it.

With the Dior Winter 2019-2020 men's show, @MrKimJones not only presented a collection that was one must-have after the next and highlighted a virtuoso collaboration with the artist Raymond Pettibon, his chosen staging in a black box situated steps from the Eiffel Tower, positioning his models on a moving walkway like contemporary marble statues, offered a takeaway image of defiant modern masculinity blazing a path into fashion's future.
