Anticipation and excitement ran high as the large room filled in with A-list celebrities for the Dior Homme show. An eclectic but highly trusted group of men’s style influencers such as ASAP Rocky, ASAP Ferg and Boy George were granted front row access. Joining them were Carrine Roitfield and current Creative Director of Dior, Maria Geaziachiuri.
Guests took their seats under the flag lined ceiling lit an inferno red due to the rooms all around lighting. The first look, a tailored blazer atop a slim button up and slim tie was paired with cropped trousers and sleek leather gloves. Suiting is something Dior Homme is well associated with, but Kris Van Assche’s ability to incorporate streetwear trends is what set’s his collections apart, and makes Dior a house hold name among style influencers today.
Classic double breasted blazers look fresh with contrasting stripes, fitted shirts and large safety lapel pins. The pops of red and orange throughout the jet black collection felt sleek and on target with Parisian cool styles. The clean cut wool coats and soft looking leather trench coats were styled with futuristic ski goggles and supple burnt orange leather gloves. Full on fur and colorful fur accents along with sporty puffer jackets stood out.
The crowd of men artwork that was used for the invitations made a surprise appearance in the show’s final pieces. The original artwork by street artist Dan Witz became a carryall bag and sporty bomber jacket. Most impressively the print was used for an all over cape and a subtle glittering tailored suit. The collection was a strong representation of how Dior Homme continues to set trends and remain on top of the high street style industry.
