Kris Van Assche is a Belgian designer who has worked for Dior Homme and Yves Saint Laurent. He began his own label in early 2005. His collections include aspects of sportswear, along with a classic, yet rugged edge. This description remains true of his “Cognac Sport” Spring/Summer 2014 collection. KRISVANASSCHE says that, “The men who have grown up with sportswear… are often some of the most sophisticated fashion customers.”
KRISVANASSCHE’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection is about interpreting your own style from the looks created. This collection combines the essence of chic with the everyday sportswear, making this collection relatable to everyone. You can find ways to dress this collection up for a night out, or down for a more casual look. Whatever style suits you, KRISVANASSCHE’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection can help you accomplish it.
One essential piece of this collection is the cagoule sports jacket, which is crossed with an almost trench-coat style to give it a more elegant appeal. Another form of outerwear in this collection is the use of double breasted jackets being worn with shorts, allowing the look to become much more casual. KRISVANASSCHE uses an array of standout colors throughout the collection, such as red, orange, dark blue, emerald green, and black. However, these colors were not only used in simple, solid form. Polka-dots played a big part in several of the looks. To add some texture to the collection, crocodile shoes were added, as well as uniquely structured leather shoes which come in a variety of colors.
Overall, this collection includes great masculinity mixed perfectly with a flair of elegance. These looks are both fun, yet refined. It seems as though everyone can find their own style through these looks. Take a look at KRISVANASSCHE’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection and find what you love!
