“Robert Pattinson can represent the classic side of DIOR but with a very contemporary and rebellious aspect.”

~ Kris Van Assche, Dior’s Creative Director

Van Assche is celebrating his tenth year with Dior, currently as Dior Homme’s Creative Director, and talked to Vogue about it. Excerpt:

In recent seasons, his Dior Homme show has become a tentpole of the Paris men’s season for its lively mash-up of classical tailoring and street-inspired separates. The increased interest in Dior Homme and Van Assche is down to the increasingly personal nature of his collections, which have lately touched on the New Wave musicians and subcultures that affected him growing up. Van Assche’s Dior Homme has character—and the proof is in the characters who love it, among them a motley crew of campaign stars like Robert Pattinson, Rami Malek and A$AP Rocky. 

KVA: “I’ve always been somebody who likes contrast. That was already the case in my own collections. I always like the tension you get when you mix things that are not supposed to work together, like tailoring and sportswear, or in more recent seasons like New Wave music and rave parties and sportswear. I’ve always felt that menswear was about rules and codes.

“All men want to belong to a certain group, whether it’s a biker group or a sports club group or whether they are Wall Street guys or in a music scene—all men try to fit into a certain group with strict codes and rules, and men tend to get very comfortable within that box. I like to take different boxes and mix it all up and get men out of their comfort zone. It’s also the idea of keeping things more modern, avoiding clichés, avoiding vintage, avoiding things that are too literal. If I had to sum up Dior today, it’s much about that contrast, the contrast of sartorial tailoring but also in a very fashion way.” 


Kpop Vocal Analysis 02

Sunggyu - Infinite

For:  @hoyahs

The Good:

- Sunggyu has a strong voice

- His voice is very steady and clear

- He’s got good support to his voice

- I could hear some vibrato, and though it’s subtle, it works really well with his voice

- Sunggyu also has good resonance and projection

- His voice is not airy

The Not So Good:

- When Sunggyu makes a jump into a stronger, higher note, he loses some of his clarity and support (but this isn’t a huge thing)

Overview: As a person who hasn’t listened to Infinite or Sunggyu before, I was impressed. Sunggyu is a very talented singer; he has good support, clarity, and technique. The only negatives I noticed from the few songs I heard were that he lost some clarity and control in his upper registers when he tried to hit those notes hard, but this honestly isn’t that big of a mistake or negative, it happens to a lot of singers. Overall, I really enjoyed listening to Sunggyu, he has good technique and I personally liked his voice.

Kpop Vocal Analysis 01

Youjin - KNK

The Good:

- Youjin has a very powerful voice, but he also has control over it. He powers through the strong notes and crescendos, but is able to dial it back without losing his strength.

- His is air support is amazing. He’s able to keep his voice supported with air even when he’s reaching the limit of his vocal range.

- Singing softly, while maintaining support is very difficult to do, but Youjin is consistent in being able to do this.

- He also has great resonance, keeps his sound open, and has a really good grasp at getting into his ‘head voice’.

- Youjin is good at keeping airy-ness out of his voice

- He’s got good vibrato and control of it

- He maintains all these good aspects even when he is singing live

Overview: Youjin is an amazing singer, and I can’t find faults with his techniques. He is one of, if not the best singers in Kpop when factoring in technique, sound, and emotion that he conveys in his voice. I also personally love the ‘smooth’ texture and clarity in his voice, and I find it really beautiful to listen to.

Vocal Analysis!

Hi everyone! So I’ve decided to start doing something new on my blog, and do Kpop Vocal Analysis! I love Kpop, and I also love to sing as well. I’ve been singing since I was really little, and I take lessons so I know a lot about technique and other singing things. I’m pretty new to doing this kind of stuff but I hope it’ll be fun!

How I’ll be doing it:

- I’ll take requests of any girl or guy groups or artist

- I’ll be looking at live performances to get the best feel for their singing

- If you have any specific songs you think I should look at, go ahead and let me know! (that’ll also be helpfull for the groups I’m not farmiliar with)

I’m really looking forward to doing this, so please send me requests!

your fave is problematic: nikolai lantsov

- too cool 4 u
- superstar.mp3
- so perfect he literally created another version of him that’s basically his raggedy alter ego
- said alter ego is just nikolai playing with ships instead of subjects
- ALSO somehow has even more sex appeal than the original which is like… holy shit wow a+ 11/10 would bangbarabangbang
- yo ho ho a pirate’s life for me (and a bottle of kvas)
- brilliant, talented, showstopping.gif
- better than your faves 2kforever
- will probably smack his face into the mirror one day bc he’ll be too busy flirting w/ his own reflection
- but according to sturmhond crooked noses are in so it’s fine
- allergic to the word impossible
- meteor shower boy™
- has this really nasty kink called treating your crush/partner with respect and supporting them no matter what. disgusting right
- will (and has) sacrificed himself for his kingdom/people……. seriously someone kinkshame him like wtf how dare he
- …… be so perfect
- did i say perfect? bc p e r f e c t ✨✨✨✨✨✨
- how do you flawless™
- 2 sexy for your crown
- nikolai: i don’t like drama!!!!
also nikolai: 👀👂🔍
- will steal your heart and never give it back like once you meet him that’s it. bye fam it’s been real i’m forever enchanted by this perfect man… this perfect fictional man

anonymous asked:

Do you have any modern Nikolai head canons?

AYE AYE CAPTAIN (or should i say kapitan*)

- comes from old money (that’s an understatement lmao) and lives in a mansion
- but only bc that allows him to adopt a humble total of two dogs, three tabby cats and an actual literal fox
- alina laughs when he first tells her about the fox but then realization dawns on her and she knows he’s not joking
- names the fox sobachka bc he’s extra like that (also don’t worry all his pets get along!!)
- has his own boating business
- probably hires david to work for him bc if these two combined their brilliant minds together?? REVOLUTIONARY STUFF
- has a very expensive but refined taste and you’ll NEVER see or hear him boast about his finances but you can tell he has $$ in the way he carries himself
- black sails is probably his favourite tv show ever and no one can convince me otherwise
- carries the goddamn lantsov emerald everywhere with him JUST IN CASE alina has an epiphany and says yes lmao
- which she never does bc she’s not the marrying type but they remain really good friends (after they date for awhile bc let’s be real that’s bound to happen)
- starts a lot of food discourses
- *calls alina at 3am* ‘would you rather eat a plate of herring or drink an entire bottle of kvas on an empty stomach?? also what do you think about the pineapple on pizza discourse’
- has a custom ringtone for all his friends
- has a lot of acquaintances but prefers to spend his birthdays with his closest friends a.k.a the grisha squad
- once, genya gave him a simple navy blue sweater with a hand-stitched crown embroidery on the front and it’s one of his most treasured clothing items ever
- probably spends a LOT of time on twitter/tumblr
- develops a strong distaste for birthday cake but doesn’t mind regular sweets although he prefers salty snacks
- BUSINESS PARTNERS WITH INEJ ANYONE????? AND kaz bc let’s be real kaz couldn’t possibly turn a blind eye to a good bargainTM (or a company transaction) and they’re all up in each other’s business
- sobachka sleeps next to him like a plush toy while the dogs guard his door
- GREAT with animals in general
- claims he’s too busy for relationships and prefers casual hookups but one time he meets this handsome soft boy at a bar and alina literally starts crying when he tells her bc she’s so happy he’s finally found someone
- gives (a lot of) money to charity
- supports social clubs if they stand for something he believes in (so like feminist clubs/groups, anything that stands for class and gender equality)
- subscribed to ever gossip site out there bc a) D R A M A but also bc he likes to be informed
- king of throwing shade at people (esp if they’re ignorant and/or close-minded)
- probably invented call out culture
- slowly starts referring to kaz as ‘his son’
- sometimes, when he’s alone in his big ass mansion and no one’s watching, he puts on his old crown and takes out his dad’s old king cloak and dances in his underwear to ‘the show must go on’
