As progressive as his work was, it’s doubtful that Jackson Pollock foresaw his drip-style work being appropriated across a range of high fashion apparel. Art and fashion are cyclical though, and some 65 years after “No. 5,” Kris Van Assche looks to Pollock’s anti-patterns for influence on his Spring 2014 pre-collection for Dior Homme. Offered in three movements – “Disappear Here,” “Stroke” and “Zero“ – Dior’s spring pre-collection refers to abstract expressionist and constructivist painting, imitating thin, wide and scattered brushstrokes to differentiate the pieces. Dior’s distinctly crisp tailoring is kept intact, yet the sweaters, suiting, and shirting options block and compliment each other in a noticeably artistic way. Look for these vibrant pieces from Dior Homme to release at select retailers in the coming months.
