The new collection Dior Homme finds its balance on the border between the experimental 21st century and far-reaching history carried into modern times. Luxury coats from aristocratic satin, or bold slims with metallic hues, such is the FW19/20 collection, which should cater to everybody. Is that the case, though?!
The newest collection by Dior makes us feel a bit abashed. The luxury coats and jackets with half-size shawls from velvet and satin are original pieces, which were made in the air of couture and with respect to the heritage of the fashion house. Despite this, we are much more impressed by the luxury outfits, which aren’t decorated by these elements. We value the originality, but we ask: who will first follow in the footsteps of the creative director of the French fashion house Kim Jones and come up with something similar?
If there isn’t a modern aristocrat dwelling in your soul, then maybe you’ll be able to awake something more wild with the help of more bold items. Animal motifs, including zebras, panthers, tigers or leopards, which the luxury collection FW 19/20 is full of. These patterns appear on coats, sweaters, tops, but even on men’s bags or shawls.
Not only cuts of fashion clothes, but materials too are carried in the characteristic style of couture. Cashmere, furs or silk satin is combined with technologically evolved materials, which give the fabrics an extra high reflectivity. Even knitwear is undergoing this new form of processing, they are produced with the help of new methods, similar to the disrupting optical effect moaré.
Tops decorated with bold and colourful graphic elements and men’s saddle bags have become chique highlights. Criticism on the other hand Dior deserves for shoes with strange wefts, which brickwall the style of any perfect outfit.
J’adore Dior!! No other words can describe the men’s collection Dior Homme FW 19/20. For every designer, the men’s collection is a tough job to handle, due to the fact that breaking the limits in this field is a very precarious matter. But everything was achieved here. Hats off to Kim Jones.
The absolute highlight of the exhibition was, without dispute, the suit with a classic overcoat, which has merged unforeseen things: a silk satin lilac with classic blue. Satin on a suit? In my imagination absolute nonsense, but when I set my eyes on the result, I gasp in awe. It’s so elegant, chique, and futuristic at the same time. At the moment, it is quite risqué to wear this in Prague, and the man wearing it would have to have an incredible amount of confidence. For me this is a loud YES!!! Maybe one day, we’ll meet someone like that here.
To conclude, I’ll mention the black suit, where the main role of the set is played by a sweater reminiscent of an airy base of a Japanese kimono. It’s brilliant! Even though it is quite an unusual piece, it is still wearable thanks to the conservative choice of materials. A friendly business meeting? It is suitable for such occasions as well!
