Christian Dior changed the rules of elegance around the world with his debut collection in 1947. Today, this vision continues to be explored boldly and imaginatively.
For spring 2017, Dior Homme presents a new sneakers collection designed by Kris Van Assche, “I always like to blur the lines and create contrasts: the idea here was to play with a classical shape and radical techniques,” the creative director explains of this new collection. Naples, Italy, a place where savoir-faire is a story of patience and passed-down skills, is where these seven exceptional shoe styles are made. Among them is a creation in leather embossed with the famous prince of Whales motif, used by Christian Dior from his first collection, and flecked with dabs of color, in tribute to the couturier’s passion for painting. This single pair of sneakers takes four days to make.
