Kris van Assche’s spring summer collection for 2012 is build around the new suit, with wider pants and jackets.Β  They all came with heavy-soled boots, mirrored shades and hats, adding a punkish touch to the uniformity. Van Assche kept his favorite color palette: white, black, beige and shades of gray, with flashes of red in printed shirts.

Kris van Assche seems capable of letting his severe, sartorial look go en soften it with lightweight and youthful tailoring. ‘Simplicity is the true luxury’, according to the designer. And so he presented sleeveless trenchcoats, lightweight linen parkas and paper-light jackets. Black, gray and sandywhite were his main colors. Low-slung trousers were tucked into sandals.

To add a different touch to his simplicity Van Assche used samurai references, like Mao-collars or V-shaped necklines similar to kimonos. Some tops reminded of Hedi Slimane’s first collection for Dior, with the sleeveless faux-wrap shirts. Those were wonderful and new and they still seem appropriate in their renewed version.
