Take a closer look at the Dior Homme FW17 Show.
Kris Van Assche set about creating suits for the streetwear generation as part of his raver-inspired collection. His collection merged upscale tailoring with the vitality of club culture, together with flashes of fluorescent orange and vibrant turquoise. These were suits for the millennials.
Some were embellished with graphic orange or red accents, hardware, or multi-coloured topstitching that sprouted loose threads, as a reminder of the house’s couture foundations. The designer referred to it as ‘hardcore Dior’, or in the season’s new parlance, Hardior, the slogan that appeared on a cropped, hooded sweat top that was thrown over another suit jacket, and not to mention on criss-crossed tape on the runway.
