Earlier this week Dior Homme staged a second runway showing of its Winter 2015 collection in Guangzhou, China, and despite being the fashion house’s third presentation in the country, this particular event was the first of its kind to be held in the city’s landmark opera house, with over 600 guests. The collection, themed Opening Night and Day Dreaming, combines beauty and innovation, linking the heritage of Dior Homme with the modernity of today’s China. “It was a privilege to return to China with our runway show as this collection plays with codes of a techno-sartorial elegance,” said Dior Homme Artistic Director Kris Van Assche in a statement. “Showing it in Guangzhou puts it in a new perspective. It enhances my work on modernity and heritage as well as my research on plurality and individuality.” International and Chinese models walked the runway to a live performance by 40 musicians from the Guangzhou Symphonic Orchestra playing original pieces by French composer Koudlam who also made a surprise appearance.
