kim jones showstudio interview main alexander mcqueen dior

Kim Jones has been exhaustingly busy these days it seems. In addition to taking part in RIMOWA’s new global campaign, as well as curating A Magazine Curated By’s latest issue alongside Dior, the English fashion designer recently got together with SHOWstudio to take part in their “In Fashion” series. During the interview Jones discussed working at Dior, being the “king of collaborations,” his relationship with the late Alexander McQueen, and much more.

Now the Artistic Director for Dior Men’s, the nearly hour-long conversation finds Jones delving into his creative process when designing a new collection. He touches on his attempt to reinvent Dior’s oblique pattern on modern silhouettes, while also speaking on inspirations for his line. The 39-year-old designer then dives into his affinity for Japanese culture, his celebrated record collection, and frequent collaborators.
