Dior Homme Fall Winter 2011 Collection

Saturday January 22, 2011 – Tennis Club de Paris
A minimalist mansion filled with massive crystal chandeliers, fireplaces and double doors served as the backdrop of the Dior Homme Fall 2011 fashion show. Everything in the collection was restricted to just the basics; superfluousness hath no place in the house of Dior HOMME. Kris Van Assche’s vision of man is one of an austere prince strolling leisurely down the Avenue Montaigne. The collection’s sex-appeal is counterbalanced only by its intelligent spirit. The first look, a double-faced cashmere coat in charcoal and chocolate, was easily one of the most desirable pieces of the show.
Layering of shirts, jackets, trench coats, and outerwear coats were worked with a gentle artisan’s hand, appearing almost ‘soft and light’ in nature. Upon closer inspection, pieces looked as if they were cut from single sheets of fabric; a technique that few designers today are apt enough to replicate. Tailored sportswear by way of embroidered jackets and t-shirts are befit for the seductively gregarious types. The understated beauty of felted sweaters, frayed edges and all, seemed nevertheless comfy on the models. Equal parts minimalism and luxury, this is easily one of Kris’ more formidable and irresistible collections.
