Dior Homme Men's RTW Fall 2010 / PFW-Day03

“Luxury should be about quality and comfort…almost as if one could roll into the clothes,” designer Kris Van Assche said before the Dior Homme show. And he was true to his word.

The designer delivered his own interpretation of cozy and comfortable clothes – albeit viewed through coal-colored glasses. His billowing, robe-like coats had a gothic edge as unmistakable as the pounding Sisters of Mercy soundtrack.

To counter the sweeping lengths of the outerwear that dominated the show, Van Assche kept trousers boyish and short, with pleats and a dropped crotch. Tailoring was clean and simple - with skinny lapels and tiny collars - staying true to the label’s minimalist roots.

One jacket with a doubled-up effect seemed off-kilter compared to the moody draping that resonated throughout the collection.

The designer eventually moved away from the dark side and into friendlier territory, employing beautiful cashmere fabrics in oatmeal, biscuit and dark brown tones.

A topcoat that dipped lower in the front was among the standout pieces, while cocooning effects in tailoring, such as a jacket with a scarf-like neckline, were quintessentially chic.
