The Workforce–Showing one of his strongest collections to date, Belgian designer Kris Van Assche turned to world affairs to take hold of his latest inspiration. Casting the banker and the working class as his characters of the season, Van Assche took his steadfast penchant for suiting to a new dimension. Evoking a certain elegance that felt fresh, men of a romantic imagination breezed by the catwalk. For an element so frequently referred to, Van Assche’s turn to the workerswear aesthetic prompted a regal quality when blended with his skills in construction and draping. Relaxed trousers, cut to a fine art floated by while more frequented items like the bomber jacket felt decisively urban. Juxtaposed with knits that fell like a dream, in a season with so much focus on suiting, Kris Van Assche’s fall/winter 2012 collection executed the fundamental with such ease and difference.
