KRISVANASSCHE menswear Spring/Summer 2014

So far, no one has been able to translate sportswear into luxury with as much ease as Kris Van Assche. For his Spring/Summer 2014 collection, the Belgian designer gave us a hint of what he was going to showcase by the design of his invitation (a polka-dot cutout envelope).
Showcasing his collection at Palais de Tokyo (greeting guests with champagne served in custom “KRISVANASSCHE” cardboard cups), Kris Van Assche chose to stick to what has made his success so far : minimalism with a hint of modernity and reinterpretation.
The color palette included navy blue, white, black, beige, red, orange, grass green and black, creating bold looks usually featuring only one or two of these colors. When it comes to patterns, Kris Van Assche limits himself to polka dots either through cutouts or actual prints (in black and white) and a crocodile skin print on the tee-shirts.
The designer injects his sportswear ethos to the men’s wardrobe and reinterprets classics such as trenches, parkas and shirts to add the sport-oriented touch that makes him so recognizable. His bag collaboration with the brand Eastpak is also on display as some of the models sport (pun intended) some pieces of this capsule collection.
Zippers are aplenty, adding to that streetwear youthful edge brought out by a casting featuring : Arthur Gosse, Adrien Sahores, Kristoffer Hasslevall, Victor Nylander, Abel Van Oeveren, Justin Sterling, Ben Stift, Ian Sharp, Elliot Vulliod, Luuk Van Os, Georges de Saint-Mars, Matthieu Grégoire, Alex Ferrario, Isaac Ekblad, Ben Allen and Jan Purski who closed the show.
