Season: Pre-Fall 2020
Key Pieces: The berets – a wardrobe staple of Christian Dior – were designed by esteemed milliner Stephen Jones. They also mark the first time that Dior ever produced a hat with flowers on it for a men’s collection. A watershed moment!

Editor’s Notes: Dior’s Pre-Fall collection brings Shawn Stüssy’s ’60s surfer vibe to 2020 couture with floral prints, skull motifs, and wavy graphics. The much-buzzed-about collaboration was Stüssy’s debut as an artist and announced his return to the fashion world after being mostly absent since departing his eponymous brand in 1996.
After the collection was shown in Miami last year, artistic director Kim Jones told Highsnobiety how he feels streetwear’s most illustrious tastemakers have been woven into the canon of U.S. design. “Doing our first show in America – to me, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, and Shawn Stussy are the most important American designers, along with James [Jebbia] at Supreme,” he said.
