Dior Men Touches Down on Miami with Stussy

By Pearl Fontaine

December 5, 2019

Dior kicked off Miami Art Week on Tuesday with the debuted of its men’s Fall 2020 collection, which embodies ideas of vitality, youth, and the spirit of the new. Presented across the street from the recently opened Rubell Museum—in a space owned by the family—the collection was inspired by Christian Dior’s postwar reemergence in 1947 and offers a fresh take on quintessential elegance.

Imagined in the graffiti style of Shawn Stussy, the show space was transformed with a runway fashioned after an abstract barrel wave at sunset, complete with iterations of the word ‘Dior’ plastering the entirety of its interiors and façade. Reminiscing on Christian Dior’s career as a gallerist prior to his days as a couturier, the collection invited the artist to reimagine the brand’s logo and create new prints—which also informed Yoon Ahn’s jewelry designs for the season.

Traditional couture codes were updated with an air of psychedelic and whimsy, seen in details like embroidery, beading, sprigs of flowers, and tropical prints. Vibrant hues like hibiscus red, saffron, and pacific blue echoed Miami Beach’s Art Deco architecture while French and American identities were blended to created new pieces like a jacket reminiscent of the original Bar suit, French berets and Bob hats (like those worn by sailors), and a limited-edition metal Saddle bag.

Walking the tunneled catwalk, we saw looks like metallic-sheened shorts worn with a turtleneck sweater, camel overcoat, socks with sandals, and a colorful bucket hat; a cleanly-tailored tan suit paired with a printed shirt and snakeskin work boots; and a double-breasted suit in periwinkle, styled with an iridescent cape. The new designs also featured a collaboration with the iconic Jordan Brand, which included a limited-edition Air Jordan I sneaker, marking the brand’s first-ever partnership with a Parisian haute couture house.
