Is there anything sexier than a man who knows how to wear jewellery the right way? Paying homage to the ultimate god of bijoux, Kim Jones dedicated his AW20 collection for Dior to the immense heritage of his late friend Judy Blame. As a pioneer dedicating his complete creative expression to constantly shifting the direction of menswear into uncharted territories, Jones brought elegance and craft back into the luxury vernacular. The story felt perfect for the fantasy-themed Issue 51 of 10 Men so we tasked our Fashion Director-at-Large Hector Castro to style these couture-level garments and lensman extraordinaire David Vasiljevic to capture the drama. On the cover shot, it’s chiseled Kelvin Amankwah that shines as he portrays the figure and power of Blame at his finest. Long live opulence… Or at least until March 17th when the Issue launches with your local newsagent!
Issue 51 of 10 Men – GENTLE, SENSUAL, FANTASY – is out Tuesday, March 17th.
