Dior Homme’s Fresh Take on Formal

Caroline Tell

This spring, Dior Homme gives black tie a lightweight, casual feel with an informal lineup of summer tuxedos and suiting. In this new collection, Dior Homme’s artistic director, Kris Van Assche, juxtaposes the notion of tailored, formal pieces with the ease of casual, sport-driven informality. Specifically bending the rules are new silhouettes like the “shorts suit,” which serves to transport modern men from the boardroom to the beach, and a summer tuxedo, which is a one-button, athletic-style tuxedo in lightweight wool broadcloth. Van Assche even dresses up knits and jackets with metallic patchwork designs inspired by Miami’s art deco architecture. “Above all I wanted to build the human and fun element back into a collection,” says Van Assche. “Menswear felt desperate for a sense of fun, something light.” (212.931.2950, www.diorhomme.com)
