Named after its founder, Christian Dior, the House of Dior made a splash with its 1947 Spring-Summer Collection. Dubbed the “New Look,” Dior’s cinched waists and billowing skirts restored a fading post-WWII Paris to former fashion-capital status. The Maison’s trailblazing continued with Dior’s immediate successor, Yves Saint Laurent, and the 30-year tenure of Marc Bohan, who launched Dior Homme. Today, refined fabrics are central to designs by head of menswear Kim Jones. His cropped tailoring innovates on archetypal menswear, updating an elegant heritage with boundary-pushing looks.
