The Great Pyramids of Giza, the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the World – a fitting setting for Kim Jones’ latest collection for Dior, filled with grandeur and dramatic flourishes, worn by a whopping cast of 75 models. Against a desert backdrop, sweeping capes and half-kilts emerged like royal garments with a slightly futuristic bent. Paired with 3D-printed desert boots straight out of a sci-fi fantasy, the collection married past and present, combining elements of streetwear with historical influences Jones says were drawn from outer space: “Really, I was looking at two things. The ancient Egyptians were obsessed by astronomy, and Monsieur Dior was obsessed by stars and astrology. And,” he added, “when I go into the desert, I look at the sky.”
And while Jones may have been staring at the stars in the sky, the rest of us had our eyes on the stars in attendance, from South Korean rapper Sehun to British Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton. Read ahead to see all the looks from Dior Men’s Pre-Fall 2023 Collection.
