Pock­ets full of style

Dior Homme

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style File -

One of the best shows this sea­son saw beau­ti­ful tai­lor­ing mixed with in­no­va­tive trends de­void of gim­mickry. It was nicely paced in groups of looks, each in­tro­duc­ing a sin­gle el­e­ment and ex­pand­ing on it. Suits opened the col­lec­tion: the first three were con­ser­va­tive; the fourth hinted at de­tail ( the inside la­bel worn out); the next look em­pha­sised de­tail ( in navy and white polka dot) and the fi­nal look com­pounded it: head- to- toe polka dot. The clos­ing pieces echoed this pat­tern, with an ab­stract rose mo­tif worn on suits, over­sized blaz­ers and sweaters. Denim made a marked ap­pear­ance, most freshly as a suit worn with jeans and a heav­ily pock­eted waist­coat, a look that was du­pli­cated on a suit jacket and cam­ou­flage waist­coat. The skill of Dior was to present novel ideas within re­strained and func­tional tai­lor­ing.
