On Your Next Guys’ Night Out – Let Your Clothes Do the Talking
“The time you start to go out and get into trouble. It’s very street in a way,” Van Assche, Creative Director at Dior Homme explained. “I like this idea of young guys dressing up for the first time. When you become aware how you dress can make a difference with the girls.” They should milk it while their waistlines allow. ”
The first bit of the collection represents the DNA of Dior; most notably the signature black suit and white shirt. “There’s a lot being said about the suit being over, but I’m totally convinced it’s not. It’s just a question of making the right proposals.” Van Assche presented these new ideas with all manner of inventive tailoring. Sleeveless jackets were paired with nothing but short shorts, and punk hybrid-sneakers commanded the runway, while other tailored pieces were deconstructed and cut open in the back, twisted into tailcoats, or shown with sleeves tied around the waist. Other pieces were juxtaposed with fragments of various garments; the sleeves of a suit jacket were attached to the lower half of a polo shirt, or the waistband of suit trousers. Bomber jackets and shirts were printed with portraits of men in hoodies and white orchids by French artist François Bard.
The closing of the show carried a strong varsity influence, inspired by kids combining their school uniforms with adult clothes. Garments and accessories feature a traditional collegiate wreath emblazoned with “Paris” and the title of the show, “Latenight Summer”. The striped knits, sweatshirts, and varsity jackets teamed up together, created a whole new cool kid uniform. The rebellious bad boy vs. the guy you to take home to dad – why not do both?
