Christian DiorMenswear Spring Summer 2015 Paris

Runway Review
6/28/2014 Ed Kavishe/fashionwirepress.com

Van Assche's infatuation with tradition borders on the romantic. He was thrilled by a letter he found in the Dior archives, penned by Christian himself. "Traditions have to be maintained," Dior wrote. "In troubled times like ours, we must maintain these traditions, which are our luxury and the flower of our civilization." Van Assche loved the words so much he reproduced them as a scribble print on a shirt and a suit jacket. Dior's sign-off was used as a detail on a shirt collar. Like Dior, Van Assche had letting go in mind, but in an elegant way. His models walked with hands in pockets. "This relaxed mood is new for me," he said. But to be perfectly honest, he could relax a whole lot more. Hands in pockets? Try hands in the air like they just don't care. Now that's relaxed.
