In questioning the conventions of appropriate dressing, Creative Director Kris Van Assche found inspiration for his Dior Homme Spring/Summer 2014 Menswear collection. The pieces displayed on the runway defied contradiction by being both sporty and formal. This characteristic was achieved through slightly oversized silhouettes with clean lines.The unnecessary was either concealed or stripped away, hence resulting in coats and blazers with few or no buttons showing at all. The designer also adopted a demure color palette of burgundy red, dark blue, black, and stone gray that worked handsomely with each ensemble. To break the monotony of his pieces, Van Assche exercised a study in color blocking with rectangles across his blazers, sweaters, and button-down shirts. And while the outfits were intended to double as beach wear apparel as well as apparel suitable for a formal dinner, something tells us that the wearer wouldn’t dare take that chance with a label as valuable as Dior Homme.
