Dior Homme.

“Angles” the  theme chosen by  designer Kris Van Assche for Dior Homme Fall 2009, was seen in the asymmetrical closures and geometric cutting of the collection. Some say it was Assche’s most coherent collection yet, it wasn’t as deviating as his past creations or a ressurgence of Slimane as was Spring 2009. It stated his point of view as a designer and didn’t seem at all adopted. But in stating his perpective Assche has lost the luxurious aspect of the label, what was considered Haute Couture pour homme, now resembles a mere sportslabel.

Rumor has it Gareth Pugh will be obtaining a consulting position at Dior Homme. It seems that Pugh’s menswear collection on this past sunday was his audition for LMVH. The rare presence of Delphine Arnault at Pugh’s show did not go unnoticed. Although there has been no comment on the matter yet, from Dior or from Assche- it has been long rumored  Assche was having the same issues at Dior as the former Slimane.This can only mean Assche’s era is soon to be over, Perhaps his latest collection sealed the deal. But more importantly can we imagine Dior Homme under Pugh?
