Ever since Kim Jones took the reins at Dior Men, collaborations have been playing a major role at the French luxury maison. First it was a range of apparel and accessories created in partnership with KAWS for Spring/Summer 2019. Then, a few months later in Tokyo, the brand tapped Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama as the collaborating artist for its robot-inspired Pre-Fall 2019 show.

With Dior presenting its SS20 collection at Paris Fashion Week Men’s on Friday, it’s only natural for the fashion crowd to expect yet another covetable collaboration from the brand — and it delivered what the people wanted.

Playing with concepts of the past, present and future, Jones has enlisted multidisciplinary American artist Daniel Arsham this season to create a stunning and poetic set. Reminiscent of the artist’s Future Relics series, the show venue features installations inspired by Monsieur Dior’s studio, with items like his clock and his telephone cast by Arsham as emblematic relics.

The collection is imbued with Arsham-ism throughout, too, with models walking down the pink runway in muted, earth-tone ensembles — styled expertly with new iterations of the Saddle Bag, newspaper-printed socks and the B23 sneakers — and even a faux-cracked T-shirt.

A succession of Dior x RIMOWA cases big and small were also presented during the show. For the capsule collection, the two brands have come together to dream up a backpack, a champagne case, a hand case, a clutch (which doubles as a jewelry case as seen in Yoon Ahn‘s Instagram Stories), as well as an aluminum cabin suitcase. These special-edition items are designed with the Dior Oblique motif, with certain styles inscribed with vibrant pigments to create a beautiful ombré effect.

Scroll through the gallery above to see every single look of Dior Men’s SS20 show, featuring Yoon’s new jewelry designs for the brand, as well as Matthew Williams‘ signature hardware on a range of bags and belts.
