Van Assche included oversize labels stating the atelier’s address on ‘Rue de Marignan’, and the iconic logo was also scattered on the backs of shirts in khaki brown shades.
To show that Dior Homme is suitable for all men, Van Assche invited five included iconic male models from the Nineties- Cameron Alborzian, Mark Vanderloo and Arnaud Lemaire. As a conclusion, these models came out with looser-fit outfits- merging the ‘90s sportswear featuring tattoo prints, striped knits and wide.
