Dior Homme AW2006 Cummerbund Denim


Dior Homme’s AW2006 was a seismic shift from the works which preempted it. Cast aside the skinny jeans, suspenders and cropped t-shirts, and in their place emerged sweeping Victorian coats, long, baggy suitpants and masterfully disfigured silk bow-tie shirts. The change of pace was befitting to the character it was based on, David Bowie’s “Thin White Duke”, a character Bowie described as, at different times, “a mad aristocrat”, “an amoral zombie”, and “an emotionless Aryan superman". Gone was youthful glee of “The World Was a Mess but His Hair Was Perfect” and “In The Morning”, replaced with a dour, dimly lit seriousness. The model’s gaunt appearances no longer suggested hard-partying carefree youth but rather the slow burn suicide of high society and thinly masked drug addictions, the same way the Thin White Duke signaled an end to the endearing and lavish self-destruction of Ziggy Stardust, replacing him with something harrowing and unnervingly mortal.

The Cummerbund jeans remain the most immediately recognizable and street ready offering from “These Grey Days.” Able to be dressed up or dressed down, this black on indigo iteration features the distinguishing low-rise, stacked inseam, and subtle distressing indicative of Hedi’s time at Dior.
