PFW: Dior Homme Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

“They should just let us rave” cries Kris Van Assche.


Dior Homme designer, Kris Van Assche,  yearned to capture the essence of the trends of the Instagram-era, whilst remaining to grip on to the roots of the brand. He felt the art of tailoring had been lost throughout the years, especially when it comes to the young generations’ trends. So, what better solution than to compromise?

“So much has been said about young people not wanting to wear tailoring anymore, like tailoring is over and everybody is doing jeans and sweatshirts and sportswear, and I feel like we at Dior should just reinvent the suit so that it will appeal to young people,” stated Kris Van Assche.

The Dior Homme Fall/Winter 2017 collection takes an edgy twist on traditional tailoring. Suit trousers have a cropped cut, jackets have shorter arm lengths and the detailings are beyond traditional. Brash colours and questionable prints have been formed into oversized coats and full-piece suits; looks which certainly demand attention. Kris Van Assche turned to the ‘boy clubbing’ scene of the early 90s to create the collection labelled as HARDIOR (hardcore Dior).

We, personally, love the pinstriped designs and the bucked trouser cuffs, but we see why the more traditional generation would frown at the new spin off of tailoring.
