Kris van Assche Interview Fall/Winter 2015/2016 Menswear - Paris
Kris Van Assche defines his collection as "an urban soldier doing slalom on a bike in one of the biggest cities of the world"It’s in the mineralogy and geology gallery with a pathway of dead leaves that the Kris Van Assche boys put on the show. The designer works the suit as the focus of the collection. A casual suit, which is worn with trainers.
Trousers with elasticised ankles, zipped jackets, gathered sleeves and patchwork in contrasting fabrics define the new decorative elements of the suit. A military spirit is equally present with camouflage design worked in colourful knitwear patches. A collection full of energy, combining sport with the classic codes of a masculine wardrobe.
Interview Kris Van Assche:
I love the mix of sportswear in the tailoring, I like that, this time there is maybe a source of inspiration a bit military, the reworked camouflage, but reworked through the eyes of sportswear, I didn’t want anything too military, but still sporty and so the marks of camouflage are reworked in a dynamic way, like a cycling vest. I was imagining an urban soldier, doing the slalom on a bike in one of the big cities in the world.
A man who is dynamic, it’s a man who is confident in his future, it’s a man who’s moving forward. Maybe we lack a bit of that, I’m tired of people saying that it was better before, you’ve got to look towards the future, you’ve got to go there, you’ve got to have confidence.
