Watch as the conveyer-belt-centric runway at Dior's menswear show speeds into fruition

Movement, energy, speed: the fashion industry is renowned for its sense of pace. Since his appointment as menswear artistic director of Dior, Kim Jones has been sending the Parisian brand into the future, combining haute couture techniques, artistic collaborations and a sharp attention to cut, into a modern and ultra luxurious take on menswear. It’s fitting, then, that for his third runway show for the house (previous set ups have boasted a 10-metre tall floral effigy or Monsieur Dior created in collaboration with Kaws, and a towering female cyborg dreamt up with Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama), Jones erected a 72-metre long conveyor belt inside a purpose built black block, with models statue-like projecting through the space. Jones was inspired by the still positions of models traditionally poised inside couture salons, and his set up simultaneously nodded to the glorious past of the house, and the flourishing movement towards its present.
