Dior Homme Takes Us on a Roller Coaster Ride

By Allison Merchant

July 1, 2016

Last week in Paris, Kris Van Assche took the fashion world on a roller coaster ride. The designer for Dior Homme presented the menswear collection for spring/summer 2017 with the right balance of slight chaos. Set against an intricate industrial backdrop of metallic twists and turns, the new collection radiated with energy rivaling the colorfully luminous bulbs on the fixture.

Synergetic pieces held touches of the New Wave and refined militant tailoring and ignited an evolution of boy to man. Van Assche was inspired by the multigenerational strength of boyhood and subcultures. The two-piece suit was upset by eyelets, sports lacing, staples, and screen-printed suiting wools to add that silent turmoil in an industrial atmosphere.

Small embellishments were seen throughout the collection, integrated in the formal, sport, and casual creating a harmonious presentation. The designer’s progressive visions reflected softened rebellions and the refined utilitarian. Dior Homme’s Van Assche marched to his own drum with a resonating beat of hybridity.
