Long and relaxed shapes were the definitive message beind Belgium Kris Van Assche's summer collection. Soft layers were fresh and romantic and vindicated relaxed dressing. The Moroccon-inspired collection relied on draping and tone on tone monochromatic layering as long tunics, shorts and trousers were all given room to breath. Elongated shirts and t-shirts have been explored by many designers and this season Van Assche's versions were some of the most covetable. The collection although clear in its vision and aesthetic was only fully appropriate for summer relaxing, but perhaps not so relevant as a practical working wardrobe. Falling somewhere between the casual and smart divide, Van Assche's clothes are defined by their innovative silhouettes and brave approaches to changing perceptions of contemporary menswear.
