Dior Homme
Summer 2018 Show

June 24, 2017 - Paris -
3:00PM (GMT+2)

On the occasion of his ten-year annviersary at Dior Homme, Kris Van Assche revels in the craftsmanship of the House atelier situated at no. 3 rue Marignan in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. Musings on process and proportion become the theme of the Summer 2018 collection, as the studied deconstruction and reconstruction of the Dior Homme suit produces controlled gestures of volume.

Tailored in black ottoman wool, a slim and sculpted blazer is features multiple varations: the long summer coat, a backless or sleeveless gilet, and a new bias-cut tailcoat. The base of the Dior Homme jacket is bisected into polos and shirts or tacked to wide pants, whilst its sleeves tie at the waist as an urban trompe l’œil. Exploring the brink of adulthood, varsity elements are fused with the tenets of fine suiting – a jacket melds with a  bomber sleeve, collegiate weaths adorn track tops, and striped argyle knits are strung with garlands of naive gothic jewellery.

Basting stitches and selvedge create humble embellishments, as the monochrome address ribbon appears throughout the collection: alongside taped edges and ribbed athletic stripes, it joins the atelier logo to elevate hooded outerwear and grained nappa leatheroods. Drawn from the oil paintings of François Bard hooded figures, portraits, and dark orchids inject shots of cyan and yellow to a palette of vermillon, burgundy, camel and sky blue.

The freedom of innocence prevails in a midsummer mood that marks the penultimate fusion of sport and suit.
