Dior Homme: too cool for school

With tough aviator sunglasses and army-green caps, Dior Homme’s fall 2012 boys should have felt like they were about to bark out orders to new recruits at a military boot camp. But when there were ties at their necks and relaxed cut pants slouching towards their knees, they more seemed like freshfaced schoolboys aiming for rebellion.

Still, the military references were strong on Dior’s Paris fashion week (PFW) runway, just as they have been with various other men’s collections this season. The colour palette of olive, khaki, charcoal and beige didn’t at all disagree.

Shape wise, the designs by Kris Van Assche are often made for freedom and flow, with wide, long coats and loose fits dominating the collection. His suit cuts varied from model to model, ranging from very on-trend two button mens suits through to the surprise appearence of the 4 – and even 5 – button suit jacket.
