Fall 2009 Men's Dior Homme

Kris Van Assche took over from iconic Hedi Slimane a couple years ago as the lead designer for Dior Homme. He's also has an eponymous label.

It looks as if KVA got his colour palette this season from a North York Yeshiva. Ok, to be fair, there were flamboyant displays of grey. All kidding aside, there were some interesting angular cuts (which seems to be trendy these days e.g. Prada and Raf Simons). I'd be curious to get up close to those clunky shoes to see if that white strip is actually stitching.

I always liked the men's change room at the NYC midtown Dior boutique. It's got this dizzying black and white fun-house pattern.
