A nostalgic romantic yet retro punk inspired collection was delivered by the house of Dior on Saturday, and this Summer 2018 collection was particularly special, as it was the 10th anniversary celebration of menswear designer Kris Van Assche at the helm of Dior Homme.
When all the other brands seem to have given us large silhouettes, and relaxed fit clothes, Kris didn’t hesitate with going in the opposite direction and showing that tight fitting tailoring is not quite dead yet; far from it.
Models were sent down the runway wearing varsity inspired bomber jackets and sweaters featuring a latenight summer print (we had a little sneak peek on the invitation), logo personalised silk scarves (which we absolutely adore) and deconstructed minimalist tailcoats.
Van Asche also didn’t hesitate to show us how sleek tailoring can be dressed down and paired with high-end luxury trainers, and certainly affirmed how he slowly changed (from its predecessor Hedi Slimane) the brand and how he is leaving his own foot print at the house of Dior each single season.
This was the second season the brand had its runway show at Grand Palais, and we enjoyed entering the set and finding a summer grass carpet laid out, also long tape strings were handing from the ceiling giving that punk alternative effect. As always, Dior never fails to deliver the best of the best.
