Balancing a nostalgic historical sense with radical modernism, Kris Van Assche has created a distinctive, refined world of nonchalant elegance. Van Assche’s work is characterized by attention to detail. Kris Van Assche was born in Belgium in 1976. Shortly after graduating from the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, he moved to Paris in 1998. After working at Yves Saint Laurent and then for Dior Homme, he began to show his original creations in January 2005. Today he heads his own label, KRIS VAN ASSCHE, and is the artistic director for Dior Homme since april 2007. Impelled by a vision of the man who takes the time to “dress up”, Kris Van Assche has embarked on an esthetic quest, pursuing a new masculinity infused with poetry and authenticity.
