Kim Jones always knows how to put on a show, constantly delivering impeccable menswear with a story to tell. His previous collection unveiled at Paris Fashion Week was an homage to Saint Laurent‘s time at
For Dior Men’s Resort 2024 collection, Jones explored Petri’s 1980s Buffalo style reinterpreted into classic French silhouettes. He was dubbed the first-ever “stylist” and changed the face of British menswear by embracing outcasts and youth subcultures that kept diversity at the core. Buffalo combined tailored suiting with androgynous sportswear and gender-fluid motifs, channeled into Dior’s latest offering.
The collection sees British motivation at every angle, applying boxy and genderless styles to the Dior wardrobe. Contrasting outlines shine through form-fitting blazers embellished with Dior’s rebellious pins, followed by army-inspired checkered jackets with oversized chest pockets, “CD” buckle belts, and hybrid kilts paying tribute to Buffalo skirts. Cable knit pullovers and cutout shirting is concealed beneath eloquent trench coats, while faded denim workwear honors London’s working-class uniform. Finally, Petri’s quintessential MA-1 flight jacket is revisited with satin coatings and shearling collars adorned with Dior’s diamond-shaped logo pulled from its 1960s archive.
