Influenced by the archives of the House, Kim Jones has designed a collection of elegant shirts and overshirts ideal for the modern man.
An embodiment of the House's sophistication, this collection of Dior Men shirts showcases the creativity and sartorial savoir-faire of Kim Jones. The straight-cut silhouette is offered in a multitude of short or long-sleeve styles, punctuated with classic shirting details such as chest patch pockets, concealed button plackets and spread collars. His plain designer dress shirts make the case for understated style and simplicity when the occasion calls for it. Other more relaxed designs, like the Hawaiian shirt, feature oversized fits and convertible collars. Archives and the House's heritage are great sources of inspiration for the Creative Director of men's collections. Many of his high-end men's shirts feature emblematic designs. The bee is one such reoccurring emblem, an imperial French symbol signifying strength and power. Another is the iconic Dior Oblique motif. First introduced in 1967, it has since been interpreted in a myriad of ways, yet still maintains its signature, perennial appeal. Other styles boast Mr. Dior's initials. Colorful and bold variations serve as tools for self-expression. The patterns and embroidered designs are regularly revisited and reimagined through Kim Jones' collaborations with diverse artists, delivering something fresh and exciting each new season. Further distinguishing the styles, Dior Men shirts and overshirts are accented with original finishes such as zippers, press-stud buttons, pockets, quilted stitching, side slits and contrasting piping. Meticulous craftsmanship and tailoring are the standard in Christian Dior ateliers. The luxury shirts for men are only made of the very finest materials, fitting for the different seasons as well as for all the demands of daily life. Particular attention is paid to the use of natural fibers such as silk and cotton, which are incorporated in jacquards, chambrays, poplins, denims, micro piqués, jerseys, knits or luxurious organza. These great classics of the male wardrobe can be effortlessly coordinated with jeans to elevate one's look, or with a suit and tie for a sleeker and more classic ensemble.
