Dior men’s artistic director Kim Jones opens the doors to his London home in the latest print issue of 032c, allowing a rare glimpse into the private life of one of the world’s most hyped designers. Unsurprisingly, the place is stunning.
In the gallery above you’ll find several highlights from the publication’s shoot, which focus on the more personal elements that nestle between concrete walls in Jones’ vast industrial mecca. Personal handwritten notes and a hefty selection of signed portraits sit next to grails like fragment design x Thunderbolt Project’s Pokémon plush.
His home also houses an impressive collection of ceramics and a number of adorable dogs, including Cookie, his black Pomeranian. “My whole family have always been collectors,” he explains in the accompanying interview.
“Particularly my father, who was a geologist. He amassed a huge collection of material from all over the world. I have quite a lot of natural and geological objects in my house actually, and I am very concerned about preservation of the environment and biodiversity. People always say that’s hypocritical, given what I do, but I don’t think it is. I simply feel that protecting animals and rare species is a responsibility, and it is part of who I am.”
To read the interview in full you’ll have to head over to 032c’s web store and pick up a copy for yourself. 032c’s The Workshop space in Berlin is also hosting a special fashion week store this week, from 2-7pm daily. Address details here.
