Kim Jones' latest offering for Dior Men's showcases a new and original material, the Dior oblique tapestry. Having updated three iconic Dior pieces with woollen tapestry, the soft saddle bag, B23 sneaker and Rider backpack are photographed by Alfredo Piola, backdropped by sheets of metal in the clinical atmosphere of the Parisian atelier. The oblique tapestry sees the lettering of Dior in diagonal free fall, etched in black and blue against cream wool, seen contrasted against the thick seams of the B23 sneakers.
The graphic Dior oblique print featured on Jones' updated tapestry dates back to 1967, when it was first invented by the house's artistic director of the time, Marc Bohan. John Galliano, former creative director of Dior, gave the jacquard canvas a new life in 2000 when he printed it on the now-iconic saddle bag.
