DIOR HOMME S/S16 Menswear Collection

This season, the journey of the man of flowers continues, emerging from his Winter world of evening formality and the Opera House, to the bright sunshine and colour of Summer. The Dior man becomes the contemporary embodiment of a new, haute bourgeois world; a figure who playfully subverts the rules of masculine dress while at the same time upholding their traditions.

The approach to silhouette, colour and decoration of this masculine wardrobe is taken from various signs and symbols of contemporary dress, yet it is the military uniform and the stratified history of sportswear to which the collection owes the greatest debt.

From the coloration of military uniforms – the orange interior of the MA1 bomber jacket to khaki camouflage patterning and naval blues – to the more gentlemanly Argyll knits and hunting checks of traditional sporting garments. This is a ‘grand maison’ approach to sportswear; where the contemporary and the traditional are playfully mixed and their codes subverted. Here, the street, the classic and the couture all become one, metamorphosing and subverting ideas associated to each.
