Models trod through pink sand at the Paris premiere of Dior’s Summer 2020 Collection. As Englishman Kim Jones – Dior Homme’s Artistic Director – sought to revisit iconic moments of the brand’s past while focusing on the future, the collaboration with American contemporary artist Daniel Arsham transformed the runway space into a pinked-out, post-apocalyptic landscape studded with debris.
The brand’s logo, a replica of Christian Dior’s telephone, a Dior clock, branded basketball and Christian Dior’s 1951 book Je Suis Couturier were all cast in white and given the eroded treatment to look like relics from an archaeological site.
The narrative is especially pertinent for the French haute couture maison, a living, breathing monument that houses contemporary designers who propel Dior’s storied past into the present while looking ahead.
