Hypebeast Video: Backstage with Kris Van Assche

August 12, 2013 BY OBI ANYANWU


Hypebeast went backstage with Dior Homme designer, Kris Van Assche, at his SS14 show in Paris. The 37-year-old Belgian designer shared his theme for SS14 - the anti-dandy. He imagines a man that grew up on streetwear, but now dresses in tailored clothing. “I like to think that you can be both very sporty and very sophisticated,” Kris Van Assche told Hypebeast.

Van Assche designs much sportier and younger collections with his eponymous line compared to his designs for Dior Homme. For AW13, he mixed dress shirts with pullover hoodies and sweatshirts by stitching them at the center horizontally. For SS14, he makes the luxe crocodile leather material a sporty fabric, shoe, and accessory. But let's stop spoiling the clip, check out the video below.
