DIOR SPRING SUMMER 2021 MEN'S FASHION SHOW

After KAWS, alias Brian Donnelly, for his first show, then the Japanese Hajime Sorayama, Alex Foxton, and more recently the American artist Daniel Arsham, Kim Jones chose to collaborate with the Ghanaian Amoako Boafo, an additional iconoclastic artist who is added to the collaborative list that has grown from season to season since his arrival at the artistic direction of Dior Men.

For those who do not know Amoako Boafo: this 36-year-old Ghanaian, living in Vienna and represented by the American gallery Mariane Ibrahim, is one of the rising stars of the art market. He is known for his portraits of black men and women, painted with his fingers, “ subtly streamlined and refined ” and which have “ a sense of style ”, underlines Dior in his press release.

“I love his work, I always wanted to work with an African artist because I grew up in Africa and African art has always been part of my life,” Kim Jones explains in the film.

Worn exclusively by black models - we can't help but make the correlation with the Black Live Matters movement - the collection mixes chic sportswear pieces with others with sophisticated cuts, Dior's iconic pearl gray color with flashy touches of pink, yellow or green. These associations were born from the merger of two creative worlds of two artists whose video shows unexpected affinities.
