Urban military at Kris Van Assche

Paris: Kris Van Assche approached the military theme and gave it an urban edge. Playful tailoring was updated with sport-inspired elements – lava lamps-like patch pockets and panels, elastic cuffs and rounded sleeves modernized tailored suits and outerwear. Van Assche presented the camouflage pattern in abstract shapes and oversized proportions – rollneck sweaters in off-beat colours of burgundy, bright green and cement grey stood out. Bomber jackets and fur-collared parkas were re-worked in satin materials, giving the line up a romantic twist. Other highlights included elongated Seventies-inspired ski sweaters, hiking sneakers and a desirable nappa leather bomber jacket. Military never felt so elegant. – Diego Sanchez
