Dior Homme's Kris Van Assche Gives Us a Sneak Peak at His Winter 2014 Collection

Before his collection goes down the runway tomorrow, we checked in with Dior Homme's artistic director Kris Van Assche about what we can expect to see from the Belgian designer this season.

"This season I played with different codes of menswear, both formal and informal, from the street. I looked at what really constitutes luxury, like extravagance and individuality, freedom and playfulness. And I put Monsieur Dior himself in front of the brand. So in some ways this collection becomes L'Homme Dior instead of Dior Homme."

This snippet—and the teaser photo above, which Van Assche sent us to illustrate his point—may leave quite a bit to the imagination, but if we can glean anything, perhaps it's that he may be loosening his tightly zipped, perfectly polished approach to menswear. Last winter, Van Assche's militantly minimal collection (pictured below) seemed to teeter between severe and sporty, and there's no telling which way he'll tip the scales this time. But if we've learned anything from watching his meticulously made collections march down the runway in seasons past, it's our best guess that any influences "from the street" will be subtle at best.
