After causing some noise with the already-sold-out Kaws collab capsule, Kim Jones is back to present Dior‘s Pre-Fall 2019 collection which was shown in Tokyo, Japan. Futurism was an obvious inspiration for the presentation and a collaboration with Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama was the main standout. The centerpiece of the stage was a giant Sorayama robot and some of the garments in the collection, ranging from outerwear, tees, trousers to accessories, were emblazoned with Sorayama illustrations.

As for the rest of the range, Jones really put the effort to match the metal skin on Sorayama’s robots with fabrics used in some of the pieces. Shell outerwear are crafted of metallic textiles that feature iridescent properties. The collection’s cuts were sleek and streamlined and the color palette mirrors Sorayama’s love for greys and silvers. Exceptional standouts were the see-through floral shirts, patterned jackets and detailed knitwear.

Take a look at the entire collection above. In other fashion news, see HAVEN’s FW18 editorial lookbook.
