In the spotlight: polka dots
The polka dot print is usually reserved for the more kookier, ‘loud’ dresser, but this season Kris Van Assche has made them quietly cool. The Dior Homme designer embroidered fine dots all over jackets, trousers, shirts, bags and shoes for A/W14, but without it looking in the least slight wacky. Our top picks are these buckled brogues, which when worn with slim black jeans and a black tee, are more dapper than dandy. The print also appeared on pin-stripe, three-piece suits in Dior Homme’s current collection, giving formalwear a more urban feel. If that sounds a bit too much, opt for the spotted briefcase instead. It’ll make a quieter stylish sound, like Marshall’s new mini Stanmore bluetooth speaker.
