Entitled In All Disorder A Secret Order, Dior Homme’s summer 2016 collection picks up right where creative director Kris Van Assche’s fall-winter 2015 outing left off. Venturing from the Opera house to the outdoors, the man of Dior Homme encounters a world of white rosebushes.
Van Assche shares, “In this collection, the dialogue with Christian Dior continues in a more abstract way. There is an insistence on the ‘Frenchness’ of Dior, both the man and the house, and what that symbolises. At the same time, the collection could be seen as an exploration of sportswear; from its traditional roots to its contemporary incarnation.”
The collection takes inspiration from military uniforms, decorating timeless essentials in camouflage and naval blues. Van Assche even borrows the orange interior of the MA1 bomber jacket for a bright show moment. Altogether, Dior Homme delivers a modern approach to the wardrobe without relying heavily on trends.
