Fashion & Style: The Dior Homme Men's RTW Fall 2010 Collection looks at the world through coal-colored glasses, as promised by the show’s title, “Coal.”

Strolling down the catwalk, men’s fashion took a gothic/ futuristic turn as men strutted their stuff through piles of “coal.” Luckily, their skinny, drop crotched trousers were short, grazing the tops of elegant ankle boots to avoid getting soiled.

Contrasting with the short pants, in both skinny and slightly flowing versions, were long jackets, nearly cape-like in construction. Suit jackets offered skinny lapels and short collars on shirts.

In keeping with the show’s gothic sensibility, the first half of the show showcased on black, with a white shirt thrown in here and there. Later, as the music (by Sisters of Mercy) began to heat up, darkest black was replaced by warmer shades of oatmeal, biscuit and dark brown in warm cashmere fabrics.

Dior Homme was amongst the latest couture labels giving fans a front-row seat at the show, which took place Saturday, January 23 at 3 p.m. Paris time, by broadcasting live on DiorHomme.com.

With simplicity on display, designer Kris Van Assche held true to his statement given prior to the show, “Luxury should be about quality and comfort…almost as if one could roll into the clothes.” And Dior is nothing if not luxurious.
