PARIS, January 21 - Dior Homme took on the catwalk with a wide range of stylish men's outfits, allowing him to see a romantic twist on tailoring for one of the highlights of Paris fashion week.
Due to the rise in coronavirus infections, many international visitors had no choice but to attend, but the Dior show drew crowds of onlookers to the Place de la Concorde angling for a peek into the celebrity arrivals.
Models strode down a replica of the ornate Pont Alexandre bridge in grey Birkenstocks and sequined derbies in the temporary venue, posing with the designs of Dior men.
Andre Leon Talley, a fashion journalist, died on Tuesday in the fashion show.
The designer modified the house's famously feminine bar jacket to show a version for men.
With embroidered lily-of-the-valley flower patterns and shimmery sequins, he brightened his palette of hues of grey, beige, and ivory, while applicing them to smart puffer jackets.
When a burst of sunlight was projected onto the backdrop of a grey, Paris skyline, models wore trim berets that match their outfits.
