Kris Van Assche presented a collection that featured a production line of futuristic android motifs, in other words, a Sci-Fi Wall Street banker who was ready to make change.
What Dior Homme play on is always a perfect idea, mass-produced with slight changes on looks to create a concise structure for their man. So following this, suiting came in black and slate with zip detailing which kept the silhouette tight and structured. There was an almost utilitarian edge to the collection; as the minimalistic looks were reminiscent of a uniform yet were sprayed with sport elements that fell upon cinched in buckles forming fastenings and high waisted belts. Symbols were placed on tight thin jumpers that were clean and toned, in particular red that was florescent and brought around cult feelings.
Moving on to blue tones, pinstripe fabrics added a touch of flamboyance before heading on to white lab coats that followed the same principles and structure as the black and grey tones with glossy PVC looking raincoats that looked clinical.
It was this repetitive nature that reaffirmed that the Dior man, in his simplistic and minimalist nature follows a strict regime and like his wardrobe, is ever so sharp.
