Inspired by the simplicity and utilitarian nature of uniforms, Dior Homme's creative director Kris Van Assche puts his own unique spin on what uniforms can potentially become created through Dior for Homme Fall/Winter 2012-2013.
Certainly Assche steered away from the expected ankle cropped trouser trends for menswear F/W 2012-2013, by using full length pants throughout his collection. I find it commendable that Kris Van Assche brought Dior Homme on its on fashion path rather than just being another designer following what's trending at the moment. Using clean lines and structured utilitarian designs it may lack the flair and glitz like many of its contemporaries, but amazing tailoring proves that classic clothing never needs glitz and glamour to be stylish and eye catching. Sometimes, staying true to the classics produces outstanding work.
My personal favorite of the collection, is the knee length poncho both in the bird print and the olive green. I am always impartial to the unique and different pieces, and throughout any menswear show this piece is a definite eye catcher.
What makes Dior Homme F/W 2012-2013 interesting is that its not confined to one silhouette or aesthetic, some pieces were slim fit and others were oversized and often very cozy looking, and this is why season after season Dior stands out from the rest of fashion.
