van Assche

The Working Man

Kris Van Assche constructs an insightful representation of what he has dubbed the “realities of menswear”, illustrating the contrast between labourers and professionals despite a typically minimalist vision for Fall 12. Subverting the traditional workman’s uniform in line with his directional aesthetic, Van Assche offers easy bomber jackets, padded vests and buttondowns with rolled-up sleeves to emulate a rough-and-ready utilitarian attitude, alongside tailored business attire like a structured formal wool coat, zippered trench and a crisp buttondown with a subversive trompe l’oeil tie.

Van Assche also subtly infuses an athletic aesthetic through functional detailing and the injection of a bold royal blue hue to his otherwise monochrome palette – wool dress pants are constructed with an elastic waistband, alongside a quilted sports hoodie and a selection of practical, minimalist hardshell leather and canvas backpacks.
