Paris Fashion Week: Dior Homme A/W 2012 CollectionParis Fashion Week: Dior Homme – A/W 2012 Collection

Saluting another collection I liked from Paris Fashion Week from Dior Homme. It has appeared Dior Homme’s creative director, Kris Van Assche, has focused on a military theme. The outerwear and color palette truly gave away the inspiration from the start! One of the interest looks about the military trend from the rest is how Kris Van Assche had the models walk down the runway with capes, which I would see generals would wear in the movies. I am not sure if anyone has seen Jet Li’s fist of legend as he fought the japanese army!

One thing out of the collection I was not feeling were 4 button suits. I’m not all the way with 3 button suits, but 4 buttons though? What differentiate the suit from a J Anthony Brown suit are the clean lines. Other than that, there are some relaxed pieces (trousers and outerwear). Continuing the currents of shearling, piping and technical fabrics, crisp combative silhouettes, I sense a more dramatic feel opposed to the previous collections.



Kris Van Assche – Lookbook 2012

Kris Van Assche shows the looks of this upcoming collection for 2012. The eyewear is sickening and very futuristic while the garments possess the ideal minimal look. The silhouettes truly give that Dior-esque look. Of course he is the designer for Dior Homme, but I would like to see something distinguishing from the prestegious fashion house he designs for. The black and white shots screams Dior. I would love to see something, different.
