It was five years ago that artistic director Kim Jones presented his very first runway collection for Dior Men. The collection marked a turning point for the house's menswear universe with Jones adapting Christian Dior's women-centric creations and haute couture techniques for men. And of course, it heralded a time of collaborations with partners outside of the realm of fashion.
The Dior Men spring/summer 2024 runway show marks the fifth-year anniversary of Jone at the house. Offering a teaser into what the collection could look like, the house invited Australian actor Felix Mallard—of Netflix's Ginny & Georgia fame—into some of the archival inspirations that Jones were taken by. Cabochon jewellery as well as tweed, for example, look to be key elements of the collection.
If Jones is looking to emulate the kind of collaborative successes that he's introduced for Dior Men since the beginning of his tenure, we may also see one for spring/summer 2024.

It has been months since multi-hyphenate Pharrell Williams was officially appointed as Louis Vuitton men's creative director—a position that was previously held by the late Virgil Abloh. The spring/summer 2024 Paris Fashion Week Men's show season will mark Williams' first-ever runway show for the maison and certainly one that every fashion insider and follower alike are eagerly anticipating.
Both Louis Vuitton and Williams have kept things tightly under wraps about the upcoming spring/summer 2024 menswear collection. Save for incorporating Louis Vuitton activations as part of the 2023 edition of Something In The Water—a three-day music festival organised by Williams—and the recent unveiling of a pregnant Rihanna as the face of the campaign, not much is known about how the collection will shape out to be.
If we were to base it solely on Williams' appointment, the odds of the spring/summer 2024 menswear collection being in the same vein as what Abloh had laid are pretty high. But of course, we're also expecting Williams to add his own stamp and introduce a new Louis Vuitton menswear vocabulary that could be expanded in future collections.
