Dior Homme rolled with a naval theme for SS13. Navy blazers were clearly the focal point of the brand’s Spring wardrobe – a notion affirmed by Van Assche backstage – and were lean fitting and adorned with smart silver buttons. Trousers were of similar tonal affinity and smartness. Heading inland, light grey was used for lightweight suits – the jackets of which had internal drawstings that took their cues subtly from athletic silhouettes. In keeping with Dior Homme’s military sensibilities, the outerwear on display was uniformly minimal in its approach; luxurious bomber and flight jackets were followed by lengthier leather parkas and windbreakers cut with streamlined precision. Smooth sailing from the French fashion house. (Photos: Karl Hab)
