TEN COMMANDMENTS: THE FOOTWEAR BY DIOR HOMME

Thursday 3rd January 2019

If this Dior Homme sneaker could speak… “Fancy me? You’re not on your own – in the show, sneakers were worn with all manner of early-’90s rave- lite clothes that got buyers super-twitchy and looking for their cheque books. There was something really quite special about that show – it made everyone rethink the purpose of the suit and, more importantly, buy one. But just imagine me – all 2in-high sole and grey leather, black suede and kind of Airtex upper of me – worn with a suit! Yes, imagine that in the Ten Men office. Or around town. For the collection, Kris Van Assche played with the idea of the post-raver, now- grown-up CEO, and it worked a treat. Add me to cart and mix with tailoring – it’s just that bit sharper than the current dad-look that’s doing the rounds [Yawns.]. I mean, who really wants to look like ‘somebody’s uncle in bleach-patch jeans from the outside market’? Eugh. That’s as old as the fella it was based on. Now, it’s all about ‘the ex-raver who has made it’. It’s a welcome change from the current male archetypes on catwalks everywhere. And if I see another ‘tech valley nerd’ on Oxford Street I’ll throw them under the next bus to Notting Hill. No, it’s time, dear fashion fans, to move it up a gear – to wear Dior Homme sneakers with an immaculate new suit.”
