Ten years into his tenure at Dior Homme, Kris Van Assche referenced the past but looked to the future

10 years is a milestone certainly worth commemorating – even more so when it has been an incredible 70 years since the revolution of Christian Dior's New Look. 

After spending a decade as Creative Director, Kris Van Assche referenced the past but looked to the future to bring forth Dior Homme's Summer 2018 collection, presented at the Grand Palais last week. He named it 'Late Night Summer' – an ode to the young men who represent the new generation of Dior Homme. Van Assche focused on the Dior DNA and presented studied deconstruction and reconstructions of the Dior Homme suit, from the sculpted ottomoin wool blazer in multiple varations to sleeveless gilets and bias-cut tailcoats. Collegiate elements were also fused with fine suiting to represent age on the brink of adulthood – think bomber sleeves on suit jackets and rosettes (made from ribbons with '3 Rue de Marignan' emblazoned on it) pinned to lapels.

Van Assache then segued into the second part of the narrative, presenting looks after looks that fused sport with suit. Striped knits, sweater vests, sweatshirts, varsity jackets, thigh-baring shorts, and skinny scarves jauntily thrown over one shoulder all lent a distinctly prep school vibe to the collection, while François Bard paintings of dark orchids and hooded figures injected flashes of cyan and yellow to the collection's palette of vermillon, burgundy, camel and sky blue.
