New Faces of Dior Homme FW’16 Campaign
This season, the French Maison enlists four of fashion and film’s most influential to front the minimalist chic campaign.
Shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo, Dior Homme’s campaign for Fall/Winter 2016 sees influential gentlemen such as Larry Clark and A$AP Rocky working in front of the camera.
Personally handpicked by Dior Homme creative director Kris Van Assche for their free-spirited and rebellious attitudes, the four men, including French actor Rod Paradot and model Dylan Roques, appear in the simple yet dynamic series of images, decked in the season’s skate-inspired pieces.
A$AP Rocky – naturally headliner of the campaign – needs no introduction. This isn’t the Fashion Killa’s first foray into the industry; he has a collaboration with fashion powerhouse J.W. Anderson in the works. “I really like his personal style and taste. He’s a real fashion lover. He feels like fashion really influences his own work, and he has strong opinions on that,” Van Assche says.
Larry Clark (above), cult filmmaker and photographer lends his dark, brooding personality to the campaign, dressed in an embellished coat and a pair of the atelier’s signature shades. Perhaps best known for his 1995 film Kids, the 73-year-old is arguably more famous for his photography book Tulsa.
Also looking spiffy in the season’s coats and formalwear are 20-year-old French actor Rod Paradot (below) – a César Award winner who embodies the vigor of today’s millennials – and French model Dylan Roques (above), who also happens to be Van Assche’s muse of the season.
