Chez Kim Jones, l’imagination et les sens font corps. Directeur artistique de la mode masculine de Louis Vuitton, l’Anglais a le génie tranquille, qui oscille entre évidence et pulsion inventive. Pour Exhibition, il a travaillé en exclusivité sur le thème de la peau : traçant à l’encre, de ses empreintes des tableaux aux effets primitifs, assemblant en motifs abstraits les textures qu’il travaille au quotidien, cuirs exotiques rares et fils mohair duveteux composent ici des paysages sur lesquels on voudrait passer la main. Entre esprit punk et luxe, créativité et sensualité, ses créations parlent de la peau comme d’un territoire connu mais à explorer… toujours.

For Kim Jones, the imagination and the senses are indivisible. Artistic director of men’s collections at Louis Vuitton, the Englishman has a serene genius which oscillates between display and the drive to invent. For Exhibition, he has worked exclusively on the theme of skin : tracing with ink from prints of paintings with primitive effects, assembling through abstract motifs the textures he works with every day: rare and exotic leathers as well as downy mohair here combine to produce landscapes that demand to be touched. Combining a punk ethos with luxury, creativity with sensuality, his creations speak of skin as a territory that is known, but which is nonetheless to be explored… always.
