It happens fairly rarely that a designer defines men's dressing as much as Hedi Slimane did during his time at Dior Homme.
If you look through his collections today they still feel relevant almost ten years later, which is quite a feat in the incessant world of fashion. His most acknowledged silhouette was the skinny trouser, which still today is ubiquitous the world over.
Creating enduring, powerful looks is only one of his best assets, nailing to perfection single pieces is another. This is the reason why his creations for Dior Homme are highly sought after by fashion aficionados all over the world.
We were lucky to acquire a few truly mind-blowing garments from his last collection for the legendary fashion house: true collectors' items, in other words, museum quality pieces.
The black leather jacket could be a costume made for the new Blade Runner movie. It is something to be admired by urban villains, A bold, tough statement, which is actually quite easy to wear. Black on black on black is the look to go for.
The same safety belt detailing was used on the shearling jacket. A rather unusual detail, which sets off these garments in an otherworldly way. As the styling shows, this is a piece, which needs to be thrown into the mix.
Acid washed denim or a pair of skinny flannel can do the trick here. The important thing with a jacket of this magnitude is to wear it with some attitude and panache.
