Artistic director Kris Van Assche hasn't debuted an offering so deeply rooted in the house archives as the Dior Homme Fall 2014 Menswear Collection. He tips his hat at the elegant affections of Monsieur Dior himself to create a dichotomy of romantic mid-century classicism with new urban refinement.

It fills the Tennis Club de Paris with the house's heady scent of 'Lily of the Valley,' opening the show with the delicate blossoms as brooches and embroidery inspired by archival imagery of Christian Dior. The collection weaves together a high-low tale that combines polka dots, assorted chalk stripe tailoring, denim work-wear and multi-pocket flak jackets with a Mod-like ease.

It's a fresh take on combining traditional patterns by creating space between arrangements and incorporating multiple layers.
