The Dior home collection 2017 designed by Kris Van Assche channels the energy of Hacienda Youth through the industrial landscape of a utopian fun fair. Order and disorder run parallel narratives throughout, as flashbacks to the New Wave and a sportif élan are intertwined with the militant crescendo of refined athletic tailoring.
Musings on a garment’s memory (items found, worn, and destroyed) are explored through artisanal textiles: pinstripes fray, knits bear scars, houndstooth blurs, and Toru Kamei’s arcane floral paintings appear as patched botanical insignias. Migrating across hybrid pieces, a multiplicity of uniform and sportswear elements creates a call-and-repeat of polished utility and tempered rebellion.
