PFW | Printclashes and Matches - Dior Homme FW14 Review

The label's big gun in menswear, Mr Kris Van Assche did stronger for this collection than his own, preserving the elegant and high-end tailoring of what we've come to expect of Dior Homme while bringing in a punch of youthful and playful energy. The AW14 collection at Paris Fashion Week displayed effortless and beautiful tailoring along with iconic prints of florals, scribbles and spots. Although the basic colour scheme is the 'can't go wrong' colour for a man's wardrobe, the navy suit will never look the same again.

Looking at the shots, its hard to miss the transitions from traditional and formal tailoring to more casual and street oriented styles.

From slender pinstripes to elegant spots, the show was overtaken by denim, khaki, shearling and leather. The iconic spotted belt and buckled shoes stole the show while numerous lily of the valley graced the runway. It can go quite unnoticed but I found that the well tailored pants were very much key to the looks as Dior is always famous for its silhouettes. Dior Homme was also excellent with the four button jackets, maintaining a very slim cutting in such a formal attire. No measles please.
