Dior Homme‘s Summer 2018 collection accounts for Kris Van Assche‘s 10th anniversary with the label, here unveiling a new cast of Dior characters for the coinciding campaign. The seasonal project ultimately finds the fashion house exploring the frontier of youth and young manhood, as photographed by David Sims.
Featuring images of Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, the campaign then stars rising actor Charlie Plummer alongside new faces in Andreas Wolf, Henry Rausch and Anton Jaeger, provoking a nostalgic romanticism through the Dior rose motif.
The cast of characters is intentionally diverse, as to further mimic the contrast of pieces that have been styled together by Mauricio Nardi. Standout silhouettes for Dior Homme Summer 2018 then include wide trousers, sleeveless shirts and tailored shorts, in addition to an exclusive collaboration with French painter François Bard.
Recently we saw Kris Van Assche reinterpreting the Dior Homme suit with spring denim.
