Kris Van Assche’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is a perfect example of the merging of sportswear and formal wear, a trend that has major appeal among the fashionable right now: combining trainers with a pair of formal, suit trousers is one example.
Playful zips and over-sized silhouette reflect the sportswear vibe, teaming these key pieces with structured shorts and trousers.
Beautifully designed and tailored suits in hues of shimmering greens, blacks and whites. The colour story takes you on a journey; from block colours such as stark whites and bold greens, to powerful shades of orange, and vibrant polka dots in monochrome. Prints, patterns and block colours give the collection a versatile edge, proving that men’s fashion can be interesting, dynamic and fashion forward.
Van Assche is a designer whose work really does show that sportswear can fuse with formal wear to create an effect that is luxe, laid-back and beautifully crafted.
