For the House of Dior Ready To Wear Winter 2021-2022 collection, artistic director Kim Jones has drawn inspiration from the masculine extravagance of ceremonial garb. Uniforms with embroidery and embellishments notably inspired by the Académie des Beaux-Arts offer a masculine touch to couture.
The colour palette running throughout the collection, soft, muted blues, navy, dusky mauve, Dior gray, alongside brilliant yellow, blood-orange and green, directly reference the work of Doig via Dior.
Everything about the Dior Ready To Wear Winter 2021-2022 collection is callbacks to the past, reinventing it for a modern world. Covered buttons from the iconic Bar jacket; the gilded embroidery of Rosella, a haute couture evening gown designed by Marc Bohan in the Sixties are all windows into history and heritage.
