Drawing direct influence from the military, the Dior Homme Les Essentials collection takes a minimalistic approach to otherwise complex garments.

The pieces are predominantly crafted using dark green shaded materials like rich wool and dyed leather. The classic shearling style garment is re-imagined within the line, where it is essentially deconstructed and spread amongst a number of items; the leather lumber jacket totes a sheepskin collar, while the ankle boots within the collection are lined with the same soft shearling. Additionally, the Aviator jacket features exposed shearling on the lapels that fits appropriately with the predominantly wool coat.

Styling within the collection follows standard military form with simplistic hem lines, short crew cuts and crisp details like perfectly white shirts. What's to be noticed in the Dior Homme Les Essentiel line is the way that the strongly structured garments are balanced with soft materials like natural fibers and animal leather.
