Dior Men is launching a new tailored clothing capsule under the creative eye of the French brand’s artistic director Kim Jones. Celebrating the brand’s heritage, Jones reinterprets and deconstructs the traditional formal aesthetic in an exclusive capsule dubbed “Modern Tailoring.”

Combined through subtle mix-and-match pairings, and available in three emblematic cloths, the line features three jackets and three pant styles. Through the fabrics – choosing from a plain black virgin wool and mohair blend, a textured micro-houndstooth, and a Prince of Wales check – the line’s motifs nod to the house’s infinitely rich heritage.

Adorned with a signature cross strap, the must-have double-breasted jacket stands out for its structured cut. A second model with a workwear vibe channels a more urban attitude, while a third style, in a Harrington shape, combines refinement and comfort. Reflecting an exacting attention to detail, the three designs are each enhanced with a matte black CD icon pin, buttons borrowed from the bar suit, and, for the first time, a lining patterned with the Cannage motif and matching interior button.

The capsule also features a suit pant, a revisited chino, a promise of relaxed elegance, as well as a jogging pant. As a finishing touch, the new B27 sneakers and the CD loafers complete the looks of this new capsule.

For the capsule’s campaign, photographer Brett Lloyd tapped Jones, as well as actors Arnaud Valois and Jérémie Laheurte to model the collection. Artist Kailand Morris, the son of Stevie Wonder, and model and entrepreneur Younes Bendjima also join the cast for the “Modern Tailoring” collection campaign.
