January 23, 2016 – At the Tennis Club de Paris, Kris Van Assche presented his Fall-Winter 2016-2017 collection for Dior Homme.
The atmosphere within the Tennis Club, reminiscent of an alternative club. In front of a video of Willy Vanderperre especially for the occasion which is projected on a large screen, the men dressed in Dior advance under a red light, on a catwalk-track skate to the beat of a subject of Nitzer Ebb, but of course made of parquet Versailles. As an alternative night in a Parisian apartment. The entire collection imagined by Kris Van Assche for fall/winter 2016-2017 reflects this cross between two worlds: the tailoring tradition of Dior Homme on one side, which is balanced by a young, urban and very contemporary on the other. Before talking too much, of course you won’t miss the Looks at Gucci Men’s Fall/Winter 2016-2017 Runway Show in Milan.

Reinvented, devious, the most formal menswear pieces blend into urban sportswear look that borrows its vocabulary and the street, its codes. Suit jackets are leather, quilted down jacket coats have tunes, bi-colored piping which traditionally line the sleeves polo migrated on shirts and jackets of Dior … These are men of a new genre that parade, wearing caps. Young urbanites with a skater style, but a sharp sense of tailoring. They wear jogging pants with a formal jacket and overshirt in their costume; their pockets jackets, inspired by workwear, are cashmere and parkas in foal. They are mixing all with tartan coats or Fair Isle knits, jeans frayed adorned with embroidery or painted strokes gray brushes, chains embroidered jackets or jackets with floral motifs, a nod to a beloved inspiration Christian Dior. “The collection includes elements of the past, while placing them in the present to reflect on where we are in our situation today; this is a time for a contemporary generation,” says Kris Van Assche.
