DIOR MEN WINTER 2024-2025 COLLECTION NUREYEV

FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS SEASON, DIOR MEN’S ARTISTIC DIRECTOR KIM JONES PRESENTS MEN’S COUTURE. INTRODUCED AS A SEPARATE ENTITY ALONGSIDE YET INTERTWINED WITH READY-TO-WEAR, THE COLLECTIONS EXPLORE THROUGH THE FIGURE OF NUREYEV AN IDEA OF TWO LIVES LIVED. NEVERTHELESS, BOTH FEATURE RIGOUR, EXCELLENCE, EASE AND DISCIPLINE AT THEIR HEART.

“I HAD BEEN THINKING ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE BALLET DANCER MARGOT FONTEYN AND MONSIEUR DIOR. THE MASCULINE INTERPRETATION OF THIS ALSO INVOLVED THINKING ABOUT HER MOST FAMOUS DANCE PARTNER: RUDOLF NUREYEV. NUREYEV IS ENTWINED WITH MY PERSONAL HISTORY BECAUSE OF MY UNCLE, THE PHOTOGRAPHER COLIN JONES. COLIN HAD BEEN A BALLET DANCER, HAD A FRIENDSHIP WITH AND PHOTOGRAPHED THE STAR. THE COLLECTION, OR RATHER COLLECTIONS, ARE ABOUT CONTRAST: THE CONTRASTS IN THE HOUSE OF DIOR IN TERMS OF READY-TO-WEAR AND HAUTE COUTURE. IT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ONSTAGE AND BACKSTAGE; THE LIFE OF NUREYEV THEATRICALLY AND IN REALITY. HERE IT IS A MEETING OF THE DANCER’S STYLE WITH THAT OF THE DIOR ARCHIVE.” KIM JONES 2024
