Dior Homme Fall/Winter 2013 Runway Show in Beijing

Dior Homme Fall/Winter 2013 Runway Show in Beijing

Last week, Dior Homme hosted its first ever fashion show in Beijing at the city’s Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) Museum. Previously shown in Paris, designer Kris Van Assche put the label’s F/W ’13 collection on display while adding in exclusively produced tuxedos for the Chinese market. Here’s what KVA had to say about the collection as well as entering China.

The Dior Homme man now looks to the future with optimism…What I wanted to convey in the collection this season is rigor, calm and control. This is a confident, self-made man in a multitude of ways. He’s a self-made superhero.

Dior Homme has provided a video recap of the show for all that weren’t in attendance so be sure to check it out.

Here’s a look at an editorial found in Dapper Dan Magazine #4 issue highlighting Kris Van Assche’s Fall/Winter 2011 offerings. The shots are shown in black and white, shedding light on the structured pieces that come in a more contemporary fit. The editorial was done by Vassilis Karidis and features Dan Felton.

Kris Van Assche 'A Moment in Time' Short Film

We got hints of this a while back but Kris Van Assche has finally unveiled his short film, “A Moment in Time”. It’s directed by Joost Vandebrug and was presented a few days back at the launch of LONDERZEEL number 2 during Paris Fashion Week. The short film represents the easy going feel of Kris Van Assche’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection by telling a story of two old friends that reconnect at a bar after sometime apart.

Barneys Fall 2009 Mailer

The Fashionisto gives us a look inside Barneys’ Fall 2009 Mailer. This upcoming season is probably one the most consistent and fresh lineups we’ve seen in quite sometime. My eye’s are set on that wool suit by Band of Outsiders among other pieces. Tweed and other warm fabrics are playing a major among a few different designers, but that’s not surprising.

S/S 2010: Kris Van Assche Footwear

With the direction of Selectism, we bring you Kris Van Assche‘s S/S 2010 footwear lineup. “Van Assche continues to refine his theories on footwear design while keeping the overall aesthetic in line with prior seasons. Both the high top and low top sneakers in the collection feature an interesting lacing system. In terms of colors they kept it simple, which was a good move. On top of the sneakers, Van Assche also presents some nice suede loafers and lace-ups, along with some interesting high rise technical boots.”

Belgian designer Kris Van Assche has produced more than 30 new styles for his Autumn/Winter collection for 2009, with pieces ranging from military inspired boots to hi-top sneakers. It seems Assches’ new relationship with Italy’s Manifattura Ferrarese (known for their production and distribution work for many of LVMH’s men’s footwear lines) is paying dividends.
