Well, Hedi Slimane will be rolling in his preverbal fashion grave, for successor Kris Van Assche has announced Dior Homme denim – for women.
The collection, which will be in stores worldwide early next year, is called Petite Taille – or small size – and has come about as Van Assche has seen women attracted to the super skinny styles. The ‘slim fits and modern styles’ that women want will include a range of denim washes from raw and bleached to indigo and black.
Priced from 270-785 Euro, the collection will be the first time Dior Homme has designed for a female audience yet the label has appealed to more edgy fashion following girls. Why they can’t buy regular Dior I do not know…
I was completely obsessed with Hedi Slimane’s collections at Dior Homme – I am sat writing this in one of his hoodie’s and a pair of now washed out jeans – but was unimpressed, and more disappointed when Van Assche took over.
I feel his collections have lost its edge that Dior Homme was once about – they seem to have an air of Jil Sander about them, and his first collection of almost preppy white shirts, buttoned right up, and over sized Oxford pants, was a humungous let down.
But lets hope that all that Christmas excess won’t ruin the look of this denim collection’s silhouettes!
