Dior Homme – Menswear Spring/Summer 2015 Collection in Paris (with interview)
An urban sailor takes over the podium at Dior Homme.At Christian Dior, Kris Van Assche gives pride of place to an urban sailor adorned in his most beautiful costume. The wardrobe is awash firstly with tennis stripes before evolving into a more artistic range, with dashes of multi-coloured pencil appearing over the whole of the collection. The sartorial spirit then takes a direction into sportswear, with faded denim cut trousers and jackets. The designer modernizes the three piece suit by replacing the waistcoat with knitted sweaters. Monsieur Christian Dior’s signature is stitched onto the shirt collars or onto the entire silhouette, as a way of appending the master’s approval of Kris Van Assche’s work, who succeeds in bringing a new energy to the essentials of the men’s wardrobe, and expertly continuing the savoir-faire of the house whilst maintaining the traditions for the generations to come.
