On My Radar: Kris Van Assche

Posted in Fashion by Virgil Sparks on March 5, 2009

Four seasons into his RTW line, Van Assche has caught my attention. After a brief stint in Menswear before starting his Womenswear line two years ago, he seems to be slowly, but surely, coming into his own.

The opening sequence of silk charmeuse and chiffon laden kaftans were quite chic, and wearable to boot. His color palette; mostly blacks and greys, was jazzed up with the exciting print or two, the marvelous jewelry and obi belts that were thrown into the mix.

Overall the feeling was soft, but edgy, and the majority of the pieces would definitely hold their own in any modern woman’s closet. His shows will be worth watching for me from now on… even despite the fact that Van Assche himself is easy on the eyes. 😉
