Woah! No, you’re DEFINITELY not hallucinating. Ladies and gentlegays, this is Kris Van Assche for the House of Dior Homme.

These two are my favourite of them all. I definitely love the jackets and the boots.

Yes to the jackets but definitely no to the trousers. Personally, it’s not really my style. I’m short (I’m 5’9) and those trousers will make my legs look even shorter. Speaking of short, check out the short (and new twist on) neck ties.

Happy Christmas!

I also love this Dior Homme jacket. Slap a double CC brooch on there somewhere and wham bam wham, it’s instantly very Chanel. Just kidding.

This look, on the other hand, reminds me of bartenders in airport first class lounges. That… or… a male ballroom dancer. International Male catalog is that chu?

And there you have it. What do y’all think? Next, we’re doing Lanvin.

    Definately better than his first Dior collection, but still not quite right. It’s a bit Raf Simons FW 2008, but too overdone.

  2. atrocious

    This is just horrendous, HEDI SLIMANE COME BACK. please!!!

  3. alright…
    this isn’t terrible, but it isn’t good either. it seems to me like a big problem is the models… not to slight them as models; they just aren’t appropriate for the clothes and especially are inappropriate for the brand. this COLLECTION seems far more appropriate to the dior homme aesthetic without being an ‘hedi clone’… but that aesthetic, in itself, is not an aesthetic that fits the boys in the clothes walking down THIS runway.
    I agree with everyone that says the baggy pants don’t work and especially have sympathy for the guy who said he is 5’9 and wants the skinny pants back – this is something that a lot of dior homme clients found that literally made an change in their lives. it sucks that a new client has to be defined simply because a brand changes designers. of course, one could simply go buy one of a million brands of pants that create, and probably better than hedi, the same shape, however, hedi created an image… he made it ALRIGHT for boys to wear heels; to spray paint their trash and vaudeville boots gold, to… everyone who knew DH knows where this is going.
    otherwise, i think kris has not gone in a bad, or at least not a horrible, direction. in fact, i think the pants in the second to last photo (the one with the two black models with trench and dress shirt) are great pants. i also think the shiny red jackets are nice and that if the fabric is actually as great as it looks in the photos… and if the jackets fit well (it doesn’t seem that kris’ new clothes for dior actually fit THAT far off from hedi’s sizes, even this season) then they are worth considering.
    all in all, it IS NOT A “BIG FAT NO”, and it is not by any means something i would jump for joy over… i haven’t seen anything since hedi’s last spring/summer (his 2nd to last dior collection) worthy of that. but we will see…

  4. I’m trying, but I can’t respond to this collection with any reassured positivity. I seem to be in the general consensus as the rest: nice tops (the lesser of two evils, in this instance), and horrible bottoms. To me, the collection just screams “Designer Circus-Wear”, you know? Either they’re taming tigers or doing magic in these wares. I miss Hedi for his contributions to the sleek male profile.

  5. I don’t like this collection. The more I see it, the more I hate it. The jackets are ill-fitting. and it’s wrong for him to send those men in black skinny pants. KVA is trying hard to retain some of Hedi’s old aesthetic and you can see how he miserably failed on this collection.

  6. BRYANBOY! why didn’t you put up the pictures of the crisp white shirts with the butterfly pin? i loved those!
    meh, i preferred KVA’s Spring 2008 for Dior Homme.

  7. Those shiny red jackets and suits are total knockoffs of Jil Sander from last fall.

    not so enthralled by his collection tho. but he certainly has more color palettes on model selection compare to many others. and i applaud him for tht!~

  9. I keep imagining Malcolm X. “We didn’t land on Plymouth Rock – that rock landed on us.”

    i really dont like kris van a’s work. i dont like his own collection. i think his cloth lack any kind of assumption or any kind of identity image. not that i was such a big hedi fan (i really hate his artworks that he is showing now everywhere) but at least he created a strong vision of a fantasmatic conceptual model in which he operated in. kris ideas seem absolutely abitrary to me.
    so ….lets only buy lanvin cloth from no on ! spring summer 2008 total lanvin looks ! ! ! next winter lanvin total looks AGAIN !

  11. I liked his previous collection… and this one is a bit, euhm, not quite there, but there are some fagulous pieces in there… We belgian bitches got each others back!
    (question: what did you think of kris van assche personal collection? Overall not his best work, but i already know one of his pieces is gonna appear on my credit card bill!)
    So don’t mess with my man Kris! other belgians (national pride)Dries Van Noten was ok, not great. one of the first collections i liked from ann demeulemeester…loved bruno pieters…

  12. Great goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too magnificent. I actually like what you’ve acquired here, really like what you are stating and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still take care of to keep it wise. I cant wait to read much more from you. This is actually a tremendous web site.
