CHIC CHAT with Kris Van Assche
Can you tell us the inspiration behind the collection?
The idea of 'the hybrid' is intrinsic to the collection.
What do you think about the way today's modern men dress?
Today, people don't just fit into one box, they fit into many and all at once.
How do you balance heritage and modern lifestyle?
The collection is about taking elements of the past, bringing them to the present and reflecting on where we are now, in the situation of today. It's a moment in time for a contemporary generation.
