Dior Homme is rooted in tradition, but with a natural deference to modernity. Former creative director Hedi Slimane was the benchmark in this regard, shrinking the classic men’s suit to a skinny silhouette to meet his rockstar sensibilities. In a similar vein, Slimane’s successor, Kris Van Assche, injected his penchant for club culture into finely tailored garments and fur coats, creating luxury fashion for the rave generation. More recently, Van Assche showed formalwear worn with tribal tattoo prints for FW18, with retroactive designs even shaved into the heads of models.
In other words, Dior has always blazed a trail for marrying contemporary concepts with timeless style.
Right now, the design house is preparing for its first collection under the creative helm of Kim Jones, to be presented at Paris Fashion Week later this month. So far, the only indication of what to expect has been David Beckham’s unanimously applauded morning suit at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.
While we anticipate what the former Louis Vuitton designer has in store for Dior Homme, let’s take a look at another key aspect of the brand: the banging accessories.
Similar to the examples above, the new line of Dior Homme bags redesigns the classic men’s bag for the modern customer. Available in various shapes — from rucksacks to cylindrical designs — the premium leather bags span oxblood, pewter, and navy color palettes with the “Christian Dior Atelier” logo and address printed on the front.
