This season Kris Van Assche brings us a collection that is both functional and fashionable.
A youthful change from his work for Dior, the pieces convey a relaxed attitude you may normally associate with sportswear. Boxy jackets were seen paired with baggy trousers for effortless style, pulled together with crisp white shirts.
Marl grey, tan, black and burgundy were key colours, but it was the black and white herringbone print that we loved the most. Monochrome is a saviour: easy to wear, these herringbone pieces can easily be blended in to your existing wardrobe. These predominantly tonal shades were brought to life with pops of colour using colourful applique, and bright pixilated prints.
Whether it’s a blue tailored suit for a business lunch, or a long mackingtosh coat for your cold daily commute, Assche is the first point of call for every occasion. This is no doubt a name we will be hearing more of in the future.

The Versace AW14 collection was not so subtle when it came to expressing the camp factor. The cowboy style was mixed up with the biker style to create a daring edge on the collection.
The flamboyant collection consisted of blanket-fringed wools, a rebellious amount of leather, shoe lace ties and cowboy motifs.The effortless luxury style was uniquely combined to create a modern and sexy twist on the two different styles. With classy Western styles in suits to cutout leather trousers, Donatella Versace most certainly created the wow factor.
The cowboy motifs, the sheriff badge and horseshoe, were given the rockstar glitz and glam creating a “just out of Vegas” fresh Western look, but left us at Pause wondering if the collection would have worked individually as a cowboy range or a biker range, one thing we do know is that the rebellious bad boy biker definitely found out how to rodeo in this collection!
