Lee KRISVANASSCHE Capsule Collection

KRISVANASSCHE has collaborated with Lee® to revisit the timeless styles of denim wear.


Dior Homme artistic director Kris Van Assche and his eponymous label KRISVANASSCHE linked up with Lee for an ambitious collaboration between the two entities.

Fall/Winter 2012 brings us a unique collaboration between Belgian designer, KRISVANASSCHE and all-time American workwear brand, Lee® that celebrates the link between technology and craftsmanship. Maintaining the essence of the Lee identity, KRISVANASSCHE has curated a range of understated, yet uniquely masculine workwear cotton twill pieces with a utilitarian edge.

Pulling from the storied Lee archives, each denim-based piece is mocked up in a variety of hues and features trademark Lee metal hardware and leather patchwork. Five styles are proposed, including a denim jacket, blouson, shirt, five-pocket trouser and chino trouser. Each one comes in two colorways – workwear blue and dark brown. The logo-embossed leather back patch and labeled metallic details combined with the tonal stitched fabrics reflect the designer’s refined world of nonchalant elegance.

The Lee KRISVANASSCHE line was presented for the first time on January 20th during Paris Fashion Week. The denim collection will be available starting July 2012
in a selection of KRISVANASSCHE retailers, as well as select Lee stores, with prices ranging from €195 (approximately $256 USD) to €415 (approximately $546 USD).
