Kanye West once said "it’s Dior Homme not Dior homie" and ever since then the designer brand has reestablished itself as one of the leading high-fashion brands in the menswear department. Over the years Dior Homme has witnessed a reinvention courtesy of Kim Jones. Previously building his resume by working with a range of brands that included Hugo Boss and Top Man, and even Kanye West’s own Pastelle, Jones then took over Louis Vuitton before suddenly departing in January 2018. Later that same year Kim Jones was announced as the creative director of Dior Homme, and his first design was worn by none other than David Beckham.
A style icon in his own right, David Beckham is internationally known as a former football player, but since his retirement he himself also reinvented his appeal with his choice of fashion. Everytime Beckham steps out he guarantees to turn heads with his sleek but simple approach to streetwear. Never failing with making anything look presentable even with the most generic type of dad fits, the international superstar has raised the standards for street style to even higher levels. When you think of menswear style icons one of the first names that comes to mind is David Beckham. As we celebrate his birthday, as well as the force that is Kim Jones for Dior, let’s revisit David Beckham’s greatest Dior Homme looks.
Even though all eyes were on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Beckhams made an appearance and stole the show at 2018’s Royal Wedding. David Beckham arrived as dapper as ever in full Dior Homme. The significance of the outfit was that it marked Kim Jones first official design for Dior Homme, and the rest has been history.
In a more traditional approach, the international superstar showcases the classic appeal of Dior Homme. Looking nothing short of dapper, Beckham kept it simple in what looks like the standard tux moment. But of course no one does it like Beckham as he paired it with the Dior Oblique High-top Sneakers.
For Dior’s first official fashion show in the states, the stars aligned front row. The likes of Travis Scott, James Blake and Orville Peck to Kate Moss, Bella Hadid and the Kardashian sisters all came together to support Kim Jones. In between all of the pop culture icons was David Beckham who stood out from the crowd in an shiny oversized suit paired with Dior Homme trainers.
Streets of Miami:
For the ultimate dad fit, David Beckham enjoys the nightlife of Miami with a simple but eye popping outfit. Pairing a Celine bomber jacket with dusty blue trousers, Beckham completes the fit with the most hyped about sneakers of the end of the last decade, the Dior Homme Oblique.
London Fashion Week:
In a relaxed suit, David Beckham supported his wife Victoria at her London fashion show. In a double breasted, sleek and elegant relaxed but tailored Dior Homme suit, Beckham keeps it clean and effortless. The powdered blue showcases a soft approach that complements the palette of Kim Jones menswear vision.
