Dior Homme’s light bulb-focused A/W 2018 runway set is an illuminating sight

Kris Van Assche has a fascination with fairground aesthetics. For Dior Homme’s S/S 2017 runway set, the creative director fashioned a multicoloured looping rollercoaster, which dipped and swirled around the catwalk. For his A/W 2018 show for the house, Van Assche worked with regular collaborator Etienne Russo, on a set that resembled a deconstructed fairground. Lamps in red, blue, green and yellow – 185 of them – were assembled inside three cases over three days and three nights, which ran the length of the catwalk in the Grand Palais’ Salon D’Honneur. As the show progressed, each box slowly filled with smoke. In a collection that nodded to rave culture, the hazy hues evoked a kaleidoscopic scene inside a nightclub or emerging into daylight after an evening dancing the night away. Photography: Adrien Dirand
