Dior Homme SS12

Moving away from the fluidity of Dior Homme’s AW11 collection, for SS 12 Kris Van Assche sent sharp, crisp looks down the catwalk. Monochromatic suits dominated the show with hints of tonal variation in the form of simple accessories and trims.

The show opened with a series of white suits with tapered ankle-length trousers; turn ups allowed a peek of ankle above black boots, whilst wide-brimmed Amish hats made a reappearance after being seen in the AW11 collection. Throughout the show the looks were given weight by the black boots and leather wrist cuffs worn on each wrist of bare arms. The jackets began fastened with a double button at the waist, then a single at the neck, with sleeves, then without, worn layered over a simple round neck t-shirt or shirt.

As the show progressed a pattern emerged as similar silhouettes in alternates of black, toned down indigo and soft pebble grey appeared. Mustard brown was also seen on shirts and as thin slithers of colour in white looks.
