“I wanted to explore the almost contradictory idea of ‘minimal baroque’ this season,” says Kris Van Assche, Creative Director of Dior Homme. “I wanted an idea of rigour, yet without so many restrictions attached to it. I wanted a lot of contrast and choice; different propositions in colour and silhouette, something more unconventional and individual at times. Something still rigorous, yet light and fun – choice, chance and lightness.”
The clothing this season has the confidence of the Dior Homme man at its heart: daring to transpose the codes of more formal dress, such as satin, into the realms of casual sportswear, such as t-shirts; mixing the use of luxurious, lightweight leathers and wools with nylons and knits; spanning a spectrum of contrasting yet complementary colours, styles and silhouettes that emphasises choice for the wearer.
