No DH at Paris SS08.

Tuesday, 12 June 2007

Not that unexpected from my side but Dior Homme won't exhibit any SS08 collection in the city of romance and toasted garlic bread. Earlier this month I reported that your excellence, Hedi Slimane, was leaving the sizzors, sewing machines and drawing pads at DH for Kris Van Assche.

Reforming a popular brand like DH in just a few months is almost impossible especially since the expectations on Van Assche are huge which leaves no room for a collection made over a weekend. Despite that he will be exhibiting his own collection in
Paris this month.

Other than that I'm excited to see what the ultra expensive brand Lanvin will offer. Herm├ęs will also be in the mix and if my memory doesn't fail me I have never seen a men's collection from them. It will probably involve a lot of orange and mimic
LV's collections, which I hope it won't.
