Kris Van Assche AW13

Questionably over shadowed for some time by his former colleague, Heidi Slimane, Kris Van Assche was recalled stating in an earlier interview with Interview Magazine that: “this skinny, rock ’n’ roll look had become such a cliché in the streets that any designer would have had to take this collection in a new direction.” That he did, albeit through his new season collection at his eponymous label.

Take a skinny lapel suit jacket, a reminiscent trademark he nurtured under Slimane, and crop it at the rib, contrast the midriff with a detailed check shirt and the consumer angle was hacked in half, quite literally.

Steering away from the wide leg pant of AW12 there was undoubtably something nostalgic throughout the collection; a rock and roll aesthetic tinged with tailoring and sharp cuts. The pant of choice this season being a lightly geometric printed cigarette trouser as well as a cuffed skinny suit trouser in wool, a hybrid take on work wear with a sport luxe edge.

Monochromatic cable knitwear would surely be a buyers distinctive choice whilst a full length herringbone coat provided us with the perfect practical piece for winter.
