Kris Van Assche offered a range of suits in all shapes in a contemporary spirit.
“I started with an idea of the sartorial with the hyper-formality of the evening tail suit and the dinner suit. Here, I wanted to bring formality into the world of the technical and utilitarian, to produce a techno-sartorial collection.”
The elegant and eccentric is celebrated in Dior Homme’s Winter collection with the figure of the ‘Homme Fleur’. This fundamentally contemporary figure is both romantic and realistic; as likely to embrace formal wear as much as work wear, the sartorial and the technical, with the decorative and practical.
Houndstooth, Prince of Wales check and pinstripes, are reinterpreted in an urban version, outlined with a hint of yellow, or with enlarged prints. The sporty side is equally present through trousers with elasticized waists in shiny leather and the use of denim for jackets and trousers. A dynamic collection, clean cut, powerful, and precise combining the classics of a masculine wardrobe through researched materials for an innovative allure. To note: the trainers with colourful and grooved soles which accessorize the suits.
