Kris Van Assche’s Dior Homme A/W 2017 show has the Paris fashion set cutting shapes

From raves to mosh pits, Kris Van Assche’s A/W 2017 collection for Dior Homme drew inspiration from a variety of roaring musical settings. Produced by long-time collaborator Etienne Russo and his studio Villa Eugenie, the show resembled a music venue, featuring 6,095 fluttering pendants hanging from the ceiling and a geometrically taped catwalk.

The orange and black set reflected the bold colour scheme of the collection, while the ‘HarDior’ slogan that featured on bucket hats and sleeveless hooded sweatshirts was also emblazoned on the catwalk tape. Constructed over three days, the set also featured nearly 300 strobe lights, which flashed frenetically as the show began.
