Dior Homme’s creative director Kris Van Assche added some preppy looks into the SS16 collection presented during Paris Fashion Week.
While Kriss Van Assche’s previous season injected chic tailoring with a streak of youthful energy, this time around Dior’s menswear was took a turn for the dour on the one hand, and wildly eccentric on the other.
The designer is now focusing on DIOR and the collections.
The All black trend could have been seen only on the editors attending the shows, while the designer selected a bright and eye-catching summer palette. Some bright orange was mixed with navy blue, taking the spotlight is outerwear itself. I’m totally loving that yellow trench. The orange underpinned short-sleeve shirts, lined coats and parkas, and reversed, became a bomber jacket ( btw: give me that jacket!) or a luxurious croc blouson.
The fascination of iconic emblems continued with the use of camouflage, that can been seen in shirts and shoes. He combined it with a classic navy blazer and tan parka with it and he made it the base for the embroidered flowers that decorated the finale. Dior’s storied suiting was defenatly executed in the masterful manner that is to be expected of the Parisian icon, with some select pieces sporting geometric patterns,more military-inspired zippers and highlighted seams.
