by Aria Darcella

This morning was filled with a bunch of firsts for Dior. The house not only held it’s first-ever pre-fall menswear show, it was also the first time the label produced a runway in Tokyo. For the project Dior Menswear creative director Kim Jones tapped contemporary artist Hajime Sorayama to create a gorgeous statue as the runway’s centerpiece. The android-like figure was described as a “deification of the female form devine.” Behold:

Whoa, got lost in the lights there for a second, and forgot this was a fashion show. The collection also featured a collaboration with Sorayama, who crafted charms and pendants, as well as a redesigned logo for the season. Creative director Kim Jones also took inspiration from the artist, rendering the house’s iconic saddle bag in a limited-edition polished metal. Jones also drew from Japan’s history, as well the country today, blending it with tailoring that give the entire collection a utilitarian feel, with hints of romance. With only a few collections for the label under his belt, Jones has seemingly transformed Dior menswear into a juggernaut of excitement — but the clothes themselves still very much carry the codes of the house. It’s a difficult tightrope to walk, but so far he’s been succeeding with ease.
