Dior Homme Fall 2017 – The Collection

On Wednesday evening in Tokyo,   Kris Van Assche premiered his Dior Homme fall 2017 collection in a worldwide exclusive. 

In the collection pitched between rebellion and elegance designed by Kris Van Assche for this autumn, the tailoring savoir-faire and sportswear spirit fuse, and a certain sense of nostalgia is mixed through with references taken from popular culture. From look to look graphic elements give a jolt to masculine classics – the almost monochrome palette contrasts with touches of electric blue and the "scream red" used by Monsieur Dior in 1947; the words "NEWAVE" and "SCREAM" are superimposed over the House logo, or become abstract motifs; embroideries in bright red, black or white seem to be unraveling on suits or blousons. The collection, offered as a global first exclusively at the new Dior Homme GINZA SIX boutique with the addition of two location-specific looks, will be available in the rest of the world from the month of May.

Live Show

During the Dior haute couture spring-summer 2017 live show which took place in Tokyo, a number of additional new looks were unveiled. Specially designed for the occasion by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the Artistic Director drew her inspiration from the dress Jardin Japonais which had been designed by Monsieur Dior in 1953.

Specially for the Tokyo live show, Maria Grazia Chiuri has designed a clutch of additional and entirely new creations. Eight, like Christian Dior's lucky number, and the couturier's spirit, revisited in a contemporary take, has a tangible presence in these looks. Maria Grazia Chiuri has in effect drawn her inspiration from a design in which Monsieur Dior, in 1953, expressed his fondness for the Land of the Rising Sun and its traditions: the Jardin Japonais dress, with its cherry blossom motif, a reference to the festival of hanami which celebrates the arrival of spring. Fluid dresses that hint at the curves beneath, jackets, a coat, and a long hooded cape are decorated with delicate embroidered flowers, paired with bird motifs, expressing the meeting of the haute couture savoir-faire of the ateliers at 30 Avenue Montaigne with the culture of Japan.

Scenography

The roof of the new GINZA SIX building, high above the equally new House of Dior, provided the location for the haute couture spring-summer 2017 show which took place yesterday. Under the Tokyo skies, the looks designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri walked through a labyrinthine garden.
