BEAUTY: Clothing--Dior Homme

Kris Van Assche is a busy man--he designs not only his own eponymous label but for Dior Homme as well (Raf Simons takes care of the women's collections). And the Spring Summer '15 collection at Paris Fashion Week was visually lighthearted and fun, but the sense was rooted in history. Van Assche looked to the Dior archives for inspiration (as he did last season for the Fall Winter '14 -'15 collection here) and discovered a passage written by Christian Dior himself: "Traditions have to be maintained. In troubled times like ours, we must maintain these traditions, which are our luxury and the flower of our civilization."

Van Assche was so moved by this passage, he made it into a scribble pattern for jackets, coats, suits, and jeans (I wold love a pair!). The graphicness of this script devolved into colorful scribbles for the rest of the collection that looked a little 1980s, a little 1950s, and just fun...
