We continue with the Paris Fashion Week, that very day ends his last day. During these days, we have shown the best shows of Fashion Week in the city of light and today it's the turn of Dior Homme, firm whose creative director Kris Van Assche also presented the signature collection bears his name. He came to the firm in 2008 after Hedi Slimane, and leads to success all these seasons.
Before an audience among which were the designer, also called Kaiser, Karl Lagerfeld, or the great photographer Ali Mahdavi, among others, Dior Homme collection brought a large military air, strong and striking silhouettes with inspiration sober and rigorous . The colors could not be other than the greens, blacks and beiges. At times, there have been departures in white.
Figures and sober silhouettes, as we mentioned above. The color black has been the protagonist in the first stage where we have seen many three-piece suits and long coats. Also wanted to innovate with a new silhouette with baggy pants. Personally, I am not a follower of this type of pants, I stay with more traditional and straight we've seen during the runway.
So if I run the fashion show, and applaud from here, with structured jackets, mixing fabrics and colors. Almost always going to come combined with a belt, which stylize the silhouette and offer a touch of innovation among many classic garments.
Moreover, in the middle of this mix of fabrics usually incorporated jackets and coats, has its place padding in silver tone that I really won. Tuned because we have seen in several collections for next season Fall-Winter 2012/2013, padding in upper garments.
Amid this military trend could not miss a star like garment parka, this time accompanying suits for cold or rainy days. Every man should have a parka in your closet, in a basic insurance returning season after season.
If we said before we should be attentive to the padding, one of the key trends for next season is the layers. From the waist to the knees, the range is very wide so you should know already what would you choose and sign for the coming winter. It is a garment that women generally have been wearing, but I think the designers' proposals come with a very masculine perfectly wearable.
The only print of the collection has been about the world of birds and we have seen so much in pants, jackets and coats. I like them because they are striking and are giving back a touch of difference on black looks.
Finally, the add-star is the baseball cap with a high altitude. I say a resounding no to this combination. But yes to leather handbags, gloves and glasses (made to order, preferably non-mirror).
In general the collection at first left me cold, as I have seen have been analyzing the good work patterns and the little things and while not my favorite if I have to acknowledge that he has had a good level. What do you think?
