Dior Men's SS22

Dior Men’s SS22 Reflects on the Modern Man

No contributor

With Dior’s heritage and the house’s image of the modern man in mind, Kim Jones has is reestablishing wardrobe codes for its men’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection. Classic, comfortable, and innovative, the new season looks to past—and to the life of Christian Dior—while refreshing elements of the house for today.

Monsieur Dior’s personal style inform prints and other details, allowing staples and icons from the house’s archives to return in new forms. We’re seeing floral knits, a leopard motif, and a “CD” insignia in the form of a heart created by Marc Bohan in the 1960s. Soft silhouettes, relaxed tailoring, and a palette of muted neutrals nodded to retro styles. Even so, effortless sneakers, backward baseball caps, and buckle utility belts kept the collection rooted in the present.

Looks with a business-formal attitude were seen, too, like: black pleated trousers and a blazer worn with a white turtle neck and sneakers; a metropolitan ensemble in a warm brown hue featuring a long overcoat, matching pants, and an alligator leather bag; and a pair of white pants and a knit shirt worn with a tailored vest, sneakers, and a monogram duffle. On the casual side, we took note of logo track pants and a leather bomber in slate gray; trousers-and-knit looks styled down with Saddle bags and windbreakers; and a suite of designs taking cues from baseball uniform, like a pinstripe look with loose-fitting shorts and a button-down shirt. For a finishing touch, the new collection offered a selection of soft leather moccasins, brand new B30 sneakers, understated jewelry and sunglasses, and a series of bags—like saddle-shaped belt pouches, a shoulder tote in white snakeskin, and a utilitarian take on a messenger bag with a buckle strap.
