History of Mens Dior Homme Shoes
Iconic fashion designer Christian Dior first launched a dedicated menswear line under his own name in 1954. The range later evolved into Christian Dior Monsieur in 1970 under the guiding hand of Marc Bohan, but it wasn’t until the year 2000 that Heidi Slimane famously took control of the menswear line and Dior Homme was born. In earlier years, Christian Dior’s menswear lines had often been criticized for not being particularly masculine, with the 1966 fragrance Eau Sauvage singled out as the only remotely ‘macho’ choice in the entire collection. The Dior Homme range changed that perception, focusing for the first time on a more powerful vision of male glamour, often influenced by rock n roll styles and Berlin’s electroscene. Developing into a popular choice for rock stars and fashion icons from Mick Jagger to Kanye West, Dior Homme even inspired designer Karl Lagerfeld to dramatically lose weight in order to fit into Dior Homme suits, prompting him to write a book about the experience. Now under the new direction of artistic director Kim Jones, Dior Homme is at the beginning of a bold new chapter which is already eagerly anticipated by keen followers of the fashion industry.
