Dior Homme - Fashion show Fall / Winter 2013/14 (with itw)

Welcome to Gattaca. Andrew Niccol's sci-fi film served as the base of inspiration for Kris Van Assche, who placed his latest Dior Homme collection in the futuristic spirit with white lacquered decoration and athletic, clean-cut silhouettes. Suits were among dark tones and jacket buttons were replaced with zips, waists were belted and gathered in the back, trompe l'oil plastrons were placed on the front. A graphic motif of a triangle within a circle was present throughout, while metal straps endorsed overcoats and shoes. The designer transported his subjects into the future, combining sporty allure with the elegance of a clean-cut shape. It's evident in Dior Homme that tomorrow's super heroes face the world with class as Karl Lagerfeld finds it one of Kris Van Assche's most beautiful collections.

Interview-
Kris Van Assche :
It's a way of displaying the label's signature, which is the black suit, the white shirt and the black tie. It's been a while since I have put the suit in the beginning of the show and I've worked so hard on a new, more athletic silhouette, for a man better prepared for his future, so I said to myself, here we have it, the label's modified trademark, a bit like the film « Welcome to Gattaca »where we try to genetically modify humans to better prepare them for their future. I like the idea of facing the future with confidence.
But a futuristic touch, sporty, really something sleek, clean, as always. Something very futuristic, really almost sanitised but in the right way.

Karl Lagerfeld :
I find it great, I like the colours, the details, the allure, the silhouette, I find it perfect, one of the best, if it isn't the best, I also love the khaki, the blue marine collections but I find that it's a good evolution and mainly as it doesn't look like the old Dior, it's really personal, modern, elegant, it's perfect.
