Dior Homme's Kris Van Assche has an affinity for denim. That much is obvious simply by looking at his expanded 28-item denim line for spring 2018. Details include the silver-embossed on black leather Dior logo, which was repositioned from the inside of garments to become a form of embellishment on the outside, and embroidered roses as patches on jacket shoulders with the word "Roses" inscribed below.The brand on Monday unveiled a pop-up shop, which will showcase through Feb. 18 the collection at Patron of the New in Manhattan's TriBeCa. That will be followed on Feb. 15 by an in-store shop at 424 Fairfax in Los Angeles, scheduled to operate through Feb. 25.If the collection seems compact, the attention lavished upon it suggests that denim could become a permanent category for Dior Homme.
