Building on his military-inspired collection for Fall/Winter 2012, Dior Homme designer Kris Van Assche has created the Spring/Summer 2013 line called Light, based on Naval influences, with pieces presented predominately in dark blue. Shown in Paris in June, the collection debuts in stores this month—perfectly timed with the opening of Dior Homme in the Design District on December 1—with the rest of the line continuing to roll out throughout January and February. The collection reflects navy blues with a timeless blazer as the starting point and fresh takes on the classics in the other fitted, linear pieces, such as a doublebreasted jacket, bomber jacket, peacoat, windbreaker, and parka. Plush sweaters and finely tailored slimming pants round out the clothing offerings, featuring signature details like ribbed collars and cuffs, vertical pockets, and drawstrings; all buttons are engraved with Dior’s coat of arms. Masculine accessories, crafted in sumptuous leather and also presented in a rich navy hue with red-stitch detailing, marry well with the elegance of the clothing offerings, apropos for a seaside city such as Miami. 161 NE 40th St., Miami, 305-571-3576
