Dior Homme Men’s RTW Spring 2016

Kris Van Assche decided to magnify the “daywear, Friday wear and weekend wear” components of the Dior Homme wardrobe.

In the early days of the Dior Homme project, initiated in 2000, it was easy to find a black, stick-to-the-ribs suit. A polo shirt and chinos? More challenging.
At his show on Saturday, Kris Van Assche said he decided to magnify the “daywear, Friday wear and weekend wear” components of the Dior Homme wardrobe while keeping “the same amount of elegance” as tuxedos and tailcoats, his runway obsession last season.
The Belgian designer seemed energized by this challenge, incorporating signposts of the street (camouflage prints, bomber jackets, sneakers) and of the bourgeoisie (blazers, nautical coats, argyle knits) along with the tailoring that remains the backbone of the label. All three moods were represented in some shoes: Leather uppers sporting monk straps and punkish zips and resting on high-tech rubber outsoles. These carried the models through a dazzling maze of iceberg roses, some 2,000 plants imported from Holland.
This was a polished and luxurious take on sportswear, exemplified by a trim mac in yellow ostrich leather and a bomber jacket in crocodile dyed orange. Van Assche splashed the latter color — the typical liner of an MA-1 bomber jacket — inside navy suit jackets as a sly subversion. Likewise, zippers streaked the cargo pants of slim dress trousers, and camo patterns crept over argyle vests and leather briefcases. Blue dress shirts with knit polo collars neatly represented the casual Friday doldrums, when “half your mind is already on the weekend,” Van Assche said.

According to the designer, today’s generation mixes the codes of various style tribes in ways their father would never have considered, yielding more individualistic ensembles. Still, the fine tailoring — slim and youthful — almost stole the show, particularly Van Assche’s elongated blazers, which seemed to have it all.
