Kris van Assche’s debut at Berluti during Paris Fashion Week.

It’s been 10 months since Kris Van Assche was appointed creative director of Berluti, departing the storied couturier Dior and setting up shop within a brand long-established not for its garments but, first and foremost, its “exquisite leather” and its handmade shoes. “Luxury takes time. I needed these months to understand Berluti and turn the page,” he reflected backstage. “It’s a totally different know-how: I come from a luxury house, but this is a different kind of luxury.”

Kris van Assche’s TRENDS proposals:

  • Scarlet - Hot Pink combination

  • Patinated leather on clothing ( even on suits)

  • Overcoats will always be … grey

  • Slim and skinny are the new lines on trousers.

  • Ponyskin is the next new thing on jackets and accessories.

DIOR HOMME SS 2018: The iconic tailored suit

Kris Van Assche amazed the fashion world with the SS18 show for DIOR HOMME and we note what you must remember for the next season. The Belgian designer and creative director of the brand, celebrated 10 years in DIOR HOMME and he paid tribute to the iconic tailored suit.

“Tailoring will never be over, but I’ve been here for 10 years and it made me think about the DNA of the brand, the black suit and the white shirt” noted the creative director.

He combined really classic suit lines with trainers, wide-legged trousers or shorts and he marked to the new generation the DNA of Dior. Kris Van Assche also styled the collection with varsity inspired bomber jackets and colourful tops and shirts, showing once again that the sport-luxe trend is still on the top of the fashion world list.
