For the summer 2018 campaign, Kris Van Assche unveils a new cast of Dior Homme faces, photographed by David Sims, in collaboration with the stylist Mauricio Nardi.
The collection marks the designer’s 10-year anniversary as Creative Director of Dior Homme by celebrating the savoir-faire of the atelier at 3 Rue de Marignan. Traditional tailoring is fused with varsity elements that explore the frontier of youth and young manhood.
Juxtaposing portraits of the two members of the Pet Shop Boys, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, the young American actor Charlie Plummer, and new faces Andreas Wolf, Henry Rausch, and Anton Jaeger, the campaign images provoke a nostalgic romanticism underlined by a motif of roses.
Christian Dior’s favorite flowers create touches of red on black and white portraits, producing a cinematographic mood.
