The Dior Man: Somebody Who Doesn’t Look Back

By Eliza Jordan

January 27, 2015

“I wanted to look at the idea of elegance, but free it of its ‘historical’ connotations,” said artistic director Kris Van Assche of Dior Homme’s fall/winter 2015 collection.

Embracing both formal-wear and work-wear, the fundamental figure for this collection is a combination of romantic and real, sartorial and technical, and decorative and practical. An elegant spin is put on staple pieces, such as zip-ups, suits, pullovers, and lounge pants. The show in Paris last week featured a performance of Koudlam’s electronic song The Landsc Apes into a traditional orchestra performance in the center of the runway.

“This man has a real life,” Assche said in a statement on the collection. “He moves, he has that energy and the technical aspect of the collection gives him that freedom. He does not look back. He is really confident in the future.”

Suits and casual-wear of blues, maroons, blacks, and grays are decorated with floral pins and accompany accessories of handbags and backpacks. Pops of color appear on suit inseams, handbag straps, and are seen matching on soles and blazers.

Concluded Assche, “At Dior Homme, we like to focus on an energetic man who has a confidence in his own path, in his own future.”
