Kris Van Assche Men Spring 2011

PARIS, Jun 25, 2010 / FW/ — With pop culture worshipping men in uniform, either they are in the military, cops or CSI in their white lab coats, even doctors in their scrubs, Kris Van Assche found another “uniform”, the artist pants and coat!

For Spring 2011, the Belgian designer proposes the raw aesthetics of tired, dirty and worn outfits, like an Avedon portrait.With a color palette of the deepest black to dusty grey, moving all the way to ashen hues, the beauty that it tells is about faded tints and hands at work.

Raw edges for the trousers and repaired waistcoats; shirts used as overalls and sweatshirts belong. Tool belts and safety shoes are the accessories of choice while work clothes have been diverted from their original use.
