Paris: Expanding on the modern uniform, Kris Van Assche infused the suit with extra volume and casual silhouettes for an effortless cool. Letting out sleeves and modeling knit tops after a simple sweatshirt, relaxed tailored clothing and essential sportswear came together in a modest, contemporary way.
