Juxtaposition; colliding two polarising ideas together head on. That is the aesthetic of designer, Kris Van Assche. He favours pairing premium design quality with modern, contemporary street wear in a way that is refreshing and clean. The Multi Lace Sneaker clearly doesn’t play by the rules and offers a futuristic, yet understated look for a customer that doesn’t want leopard print mixed with hot pink or infra-red shoes that clamour for attention. Instead, this is for someone accustomed with the avant-garde, a trend setter who casts their net beyond the popular brands and seeks out something that’s a little different and pulls it off in a way you never could.
