Ever since helming Dior Men beginning the Spring/Summer 2019 season, creative director Kim Jones has imbued his streetwear sensibilities from his tenure at Louis Vuitton and given Dior a distinctive futuristic slant. From playful, cartoon teddy bear motifs by artist and collaborator KAWS to chromatic John Galliano-era saddle bags, Jones’ streetwear flourish has not lost its touch at the storied French house. For CR Men Issue 8, Jones’ streetwear aesthetic gets a more literal interpretation, modeled on Liam Pace, Michael Martin, Dabriel, Skyler Pruet, Jon Pontiac, Alec D’Aquino, Tay Hicks, and Lief Jones, lensed by Alex Lockett, and styled by Zara Mirkin.
