THE time has come. The first pre-fall 2019 show for Dior Men was creative director Kim Jones‘ power move to keep all eyes on Maison Dior, and now we wait to see if Jones will deliver, in the Winter 2019 Show. Watch this space for the live stream of Dior Men’s Fall/Winter19-20 release in Paris, happening on January 18th, 6:00pm CET (January 19th, 1:00am SGT).
2018 was a big year for Kim Jones. Relinquishing his title at Louis Vuitton to become Dior Men’s creative director may seem like a mere lateral shift to some ( both are owned by LVMH ), but Jones himself knows how much of an impact he has made in the industry since, and how different his life is now.
In a sit-down with GQ, he spilled many beans, mentioning that though he isn’t allowed to reveal the numbers, the show was alot more successful than he thought it would be, as buyers made their purchases in the Paris showroom right after the SS19 show in June.
His own popularity has also skyrocketed. Garnering close to a whopping 550k followers on Instagram at present, his reputation is synonymous with that of a pop star, something that he believes would never have happened a year ago.
In an article by Vogue, Jones promises this upcoming FW19 release to be a “feel-good affair”, and here’s a teaser:
Great, because its showtime.
