Dior Men Resort 2024: a tribute to British fashion

Kim Jones has taken inspiration from the 80’s Buffalo style of Ray Petri, considered the first stylist in history and creator of “street-casting”, as well as the one who changed British men’s fashion by including marginalized collectives and subcultures of young and diverse people.

“I looked at Buffalo because it was the first time I was introduced to the London style of mixing high fashion with vintage,” Jones explained. “Ray Petri was really the key figure in a collaborative group of people doing different things: photographers, filmmakers, singers. And I think that’s the way I approach my work. The thing is, if you look at those photographs today, they’re completely modern. They would make a skirt look like the most masculine thing in the world.”

The fashion house’s latest offering features fitted blazers that take on a rebellious style with Dior pins, which are followed by military-inspired plaid jackets with large chest-high pockets, hybrid kilts as a reference to iconic Buffalo skirts and accessories such as CD buckle belts. Faded denim pays homage to London’s working-class uniform, and wide trench coats cover cable-knit sweaters and shirts. Petri’s MA-1 flight jacket is reimagined with satin linings and sheepskin collars with a diamond-shaped Dior logo.
