Dior Homme presented its collection for FW18 in Paris over the weekend. The luxury French fashion house sought to explore the increasingly blurred lines found between the formal and informal, tailoring, and streetwear, and fleeting youth versus approaching manhood.
Creative Director Kris Van Assche began by deconstructing the Dior Homme suit. The super slimline silhouette was modified with belts lifted above the pant-line to be cinched in around the waist, labels, and logos were moved to more visible locations at the base of the sleeve and then the ultimate visual cue for ’00s nostalgia – tribal tattoos – were embellished throughout the collection, appearing on lapels, collars, coats, sidebags, and even shaved into one of the model’s haircuts, which appears to be a trend this season.
Other highlights included more ’00s references such as super loose denim jeans, short-sleeve T-shirts layered over long-sleeve T-shirts, waistcoats, and striped tops in black/yellow and black/red.
Take a look at the full collection above and be sure to let us know if you think this season will mark the return of tribal.
