menswear collections: dior homme, spring

by Jeremy Danté

a powerful set of dark designs dominated the dior homme collection for summer/spring 2011. much like the rick owens collection of the SS11 season, the collection also paid very close attention & focused on showcasing length. a dip into neutral designs made near the close of the collection & there seemed to be a certain lack of excitement here. while im sure that the clothes wont have an issue finding a spot in front of an editorial lens; i find that the collection was almost too dark for the spring. while many of the garments showcased exposed arms, the set was overall too serious for the summer season.
