DIOR HOMME
SUMMER 2017 SHOW

25 June 2016 - Paris - 15H30 (GMT+02)

Designed by Kris Van Assche, the Dior Homme collection for Summer 2017 drives an explicit evolution, channeling the energy of Haçienda youth through the industrial landscape of a utopian fun fair. Order and disorder run parallel narratives throughout, as flashbacks to the New Wave and a sportif élan are intertwined with the militant crescendo of refined athletic tailoring.

“This season there is a sense of collective consciousness to the collection – a remix of shared boyhood memories,” said Kris Van Assche. "I am interested in a synthesis of generations and filtering subcultures through my own lens to tell a new story."

A progressive silhouette warps perceptions of formality; industrial embellishments converge with the innate savoir-faire of the Dior Homme ateliers as eyelets, sports lacing, staples, and screen-printed suiting wools disrupt any expectations of the two-piece suit. Subverting the sense of classical rigor, bared arms and tonal knitwear illicit moments of summer skin, as articulated harnesses both restrict and suspend.

Musings on a garment’s memory (items found, worn, and destroyed) are explored through artisanal textiles: pinstripes fray, knits bear scars, houndstooth blurs, and Toru Kamei’s arcane floral paintings appear as patched botanical insignias. Migrating across hybrid pieces, a multiplicity of uniform and sportswear elements creates a call-and-repeat of polished utility and tempered rebellion.
