I fell over this editorial in December last year and wanted to share it with you guys, but simply forgot about it until now. The entire thing is a showcase of Kris Van Assche’s Dior Homme collection for the season and has the perfect amount of understated cool, if you ask me. I’m sucker for the whole slouchy-yet-elegant silhouette and a firm believer in always adding a messy element into an otherwise streamlined look. Dior is a bit under he radar at the moment. Meaning the brand doesn’t produce any real news and is not on everyone’s lips all the time. Maybe that’s because it is even more expensive than other lux brands, but I will definitely watch the brand more closely for the upcoming seasons.
As I just moved to New York, I will not be able to make it to Copenhagen Fashion Week this time around. Which actually feels a bit strange, as it will be the first time in more than five years that I am not attending CPHFW at all. Fortunately, it is easy to follow all the shows online and via social media, so I will get mix fix there. One show that I really would have loved to see though is up-and-coming menswear brand Tonsure. Last year the brand won the ‘Danish Design Talent’ award that included funds for a big runway show. I have loved the quirky and cool designs of the brands since I discovered it on Instagram a little over a year ago. The aesthetic of the brand feels like a fresh air in Danish menswear, which is (too) dominated by streetwear and very conservative designs. Tonsure reminds me of international brands like Carven, Marni or Raf Simons, which is good!
It is no secret that Aesop is my favourite grooming brand. Fingers crossed they will open a shop in Copenhagen one day (rumour has it that actually might happen in the near future). So far I have only tried the brands actual products, but this new double-edge razor is now on top of my wish list. It is handmade in England out of brass, copper, nickel and chrome and the handle features a hand-polished and triple pleated collar. Have a closer look (or buy it for $105) at Aesop HERE.
