We love those lanky, androgynous gamine women who wear Dior Homme trousers and flats everyday and look chic as hell, and so does Dior Homme, which will be launching a new line of women's jeans this spring. A Dior Homme line for women seems strange, semantically, but Dior Homme likes to put out smaller sizes of its suits for super-skinny women under its Petit Taille, or "small size" rubric.
The women's jeans will be modeled on Dior Homme's skinny styles, but will be "superskinny" tailored pieces for smaller women with a bit of spandex to give them more stretch than the men's jeans. Dior Homme Petite Taille jeans will start at around $400 and run to upwards of a thousand.
