Tribute to Judy Blame

  • Judy Blame was an alchemist. The iconoclastic autodidact — who passed away in February 2018 — was known for appropriating everyday objects and using them to design jewelry that transcended its humble origins to attain art status. A loyal friend of the subversive pioneer, Kim Jones, the Artistic Director of Dior men’s collections, today pays tribute to Blame’s fascinating universe, one without borders, for his Winter 2020-2021 collection.

SAVOIR-FAIRE

  • Cutting through the darkness, in a graceful flash of sparkling light, the show’s closing look, a black cashmere coat with rain-like sequin embroidery on the upper section, was inspired by a haute couture dress designed by Marc Bohan for the fall-winter 1968-1969 collection. The coat came to life in the exclusive Vermont ateliers, as the embodiment of an exceptional craft combining patience, precision and painstaking attention to detail. In all, it took a total of 900 hours for the petites mains to produce this majestic creation, made up of three types of sequin and light-reflecting silver thread. The piece’s marvelous, virtuoso glow celebrates the richness of couture and its excellence of savoir-faire.
