Set in the grandeur of Le Grand Palais, Dior Homme’s FW17 looks were showcased to the world. With the vastness of the Parisian venue stretching as far as the eye can see, the rave-inspired Dior Homme collection took centre stage – featuring large fur coats, jackets adorned with images of people mid-rave (also sported by A$AP Rocky) and pro party slogan embellished garms. Perhaps in keeping with the grandeur of the venue was the grandeur of the guest list, with Karl Lagerfeld, Boy George and both A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg all in attendance.
Artistic director for the brand, Kris Van Assche infused bright neon colourways with plush fur to create the most vibrant of outerwear which contrasted beautifully with the sombre suits worn underneath.
Dior Homme paid particular attention to detail for this nostalgic yet undeniably modern collection. The use of studs, badges and safety pins combined with flashes of colour made the bold and baggy silhouette of the tailored suits that extra bit fresh. Of course, no ‘rave inspired’ collection would be complete without using the festival staple bucket hat, which was displayed on the catwalk along with obscenely oversized shades.
