Dior Homme presents Les Essentiels Fall/Winter 2014, a collection that fuses sartorial workmanship with elements of sportswear, denim and hand-embroidered motif.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you should know by now that sports have taken over the runways. Dior Homme’s Creative Director Kris Van Assche stitched up a brown merino wool bomber jacket with a denim gilet, pinstripe wool trousers, a tennis-stripe poplin shirt, and a silk repp tie, in celebration of the sports season.
A good suit is hard to find, but not in Dior Homme’s Fall/Winter collection. The collection presents a classic chalk stripe suit with a “lily of the valley” hand embroidered on the breast pocket – a tribute to the late Christian Dior.
Denim reigns over the Dior Homme classics. No longer reserved for jeans alone, it now becomes a duffle coat and is combined with a striped wool twill suit and calfskin derby shoes embroidered with polka dots, creating a decidedly modern silhouette.
The lines between formalwear and sportswear has become blurrier than ever before. Dior Homme’s collection features a long wool coat embroidered with a masculine, modern motif “shadow flowers”, and is paired with the sporty spirit of jeans and a white calfskin sneakers.
