DIOR DENIM: Fresh off dressing K-pop band Tomorrow x Together, aka TXT, at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, Dior menswear designer Kim Jones is launching a denim capsule collection aimed at a younger, more casual clientele.
The Dior Denim line, set to land in stores on Oct. 19, includes wardrobe staples such as pants, shirts and bucket hats made from eco-friendly cotton in washes ranging from indigo to gray and black, for those ready to swap their oblique suit for a Canadian tuxedo.
Prices range from 750 euros for a pair of slim jeans to 1,900 euros for an overshirt.
“This collection is the first capsule dedicated to denim. It is composed of casual and sophisticated pieces, which are the perfect match for a men’s wardrobe,” Jones said in a statement.
“I remember when I was young, I went through a phase where I wore Vans, jeans and a Stüssy T-shirt every day. Jeans are one of those basic that will stay with you for life. This is probably the last modern invention for men. It’s something cultural,” added the designer, who has a vast collection of vintage clothing.
The collection combines workwear-inspired details, like stitching on carpenter jeans and darts on back pockets, with house signatures like the Dior Oblique motif, which appears on certain linings, and leather patches embossed with the Dior logo. Accessories include the B33 sneaker and a cream and navy weekender bag.
The first denim designs for men at Dior were launched for spring 2003 by Hedi Slimane, the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007.
