This summer, floral prints have made their way into stylish menswear collections. French fashion house Dior has tapped Japanese artist Toru Kamei as the inspiration for its new Dior Homme summer line.
Designed by Kris Van Assche, the Dior Homme summer collection features an exclusive artistic collaboration with Kamei, known for his botanical still life paintings. The floral motifs have made been recreated as jacquard patches, photo transfers and badge pins to adorn Dior Homme tailoring, shirting, denim, footwear and leathergoods.
The design expertise of Van Assche paired with Kamei’s floral works make for a summer collection that’s punk-rock chic with a rebellious air about it.
