NEW MAN

The Dior Homme fall-winter 2014-2015 collection, which was shown in Paris this past January, returns to the runway at the Long Museum in Shanghai. See the video of the event.

It was in this spare space, with immaculate white walls, the Long Museum in Shanghai, that Kris Van Assche chose to present his Dior Homme fall-winter 2014-2015 collection. The Dior man is a devotee of the flawless cut, of traditional tailoring reinvented in a modern and laid-back urban manner, sporting white sneakers and rolled-up jeans. In watching this man move, one's eye is immediately drawn to the good-luck charms associated with the incorrigibly superstitious Christian Dior: a sprig of lily-of-the-valley embroidered intrompe-l’œil  as his boutonniere, fine white stars on a suit jacket,  and black roses that look like they've been scribbled on shirts. 

As a final tribute to the founding couturier's favorite flower, the gigantic white canvas that constitutes the decor is lit up with lily-of-the-valley and the show ends on a dreamlike note. Continuing the festivities, Park Hae-jin, Mark Zhao, Han Geng, Dou Xiao, Ni Ni, personalities from cinema, fashion and music, all turned out for the concerts by Gesaffelstein, the hot new star of French minimalist electro, and Kim Ann Foxman, the internationally renowned DJ.
