Menswear Details at Dior Homme

Menswear Details at Dior Homme

Dior Homme, AW11, Paris.

It is amazing to consider how separate Dior Homme is within the context of the wider Dior label. It is such a separate entity, a cult all it’s own that seems a million miles away from the Christian Dior womenswear line. They are definitely not the brother/sister or boyfriend/girlfriend duo that exists at other labels… or if they are, then the Dior Homme brother is far too cool and understated to ever let his over the top Christian Dior sister hang out with his other sleek male friends.

The collection sent out by Kris Van Assche for the Autumn-Winter 2011 season, featured an elegant focus on contrasts and beautiful details. The lapels and linings were panelled and contrasted against the main garment fabrics (sometimes referred to as the “self” fabric), there were raw and simple techniques such as overlocking and untrimmed stitches that gave an edge to the clean and classic tailoring, slouchy oversize silhouettes were offset by narrow collars and lapels, and the monochrome palette was brightened by a smattering of looks in a vibrant crimson tone.
