Maison Dior had been waiting for this great event for months and finally, that day has arrived. British designer Kim Jones unveiled his first collection for Dior with a runway show in Tokyo. Today we share some details of the process through a few short videos that show from the majestic stage to some key looks from the collection.

The process of construction of the stage began in mid-September 2018, it took 20 days to paint the space, 16 people worked at the same time to build the robot created by contemporary artist Hajime Sorayama that measures 11 meters long and weighs just over 9 tons. At his metallic feet, Kate Moss and David Beckham were among the celebrities to sit front row at Dior’s first ever menswear show in the Japanese capital.

Traditional techniques mixed with advanced technologies: metallic-printed calfskin was laser-etched on to bomber jackets, while blazers were treated with metallization. It was about updating Dior’s romantic ode into a “hypermodern reality of Japanese culture today”

A fashion show in Tokyo is the best way to present and celebrate my first Dior pre-fall men’s show. Japan is a magical country that I know quite well and that I love particularly for its incredible and unique culture, history and nature, which have always been very fascinating and a great source of inspiration to me.” – said Kim Jones
