Fans of KRISVANASSCHE can now rejoice. The belgian designer has just launched his first shop-in-shop concept in the world via the Harvey Nichols Asia flagship at Pacific Place in Hong Kong.
The look of the store, just like his clothes, reflect simplicity, clean lines, yet materials such as steel and timber left raw, rough, and unfinished, reflecting a masculine aesthetic which underpins the KRISVANASSCHE style.
Good curated for this special store include his full Work collection from the FW2012 season. Work is the KRISVANASSCHE playing with the 9-to-5 lifestyle most Hong Kongers are used to. For example collars are literally “white” or “blue” (depending on what you feel you relate to) and can be layered with a collection of overalls, quilted jackets, double layered blazers. The palette is a mix of grey, blue, black, and white. New this year however is his collaboration with Lee Denim to help emphasize the blue in “blue collar”, while collaborations with Eastpak and Linda Farrow will also be available.
As an additional treat, shoppers can also purchase a special limited edition Falling Bolts & Screws silk scarf designed by Kris Van Assche himself just for this special shop. The scarf retails for 2,550HKD.
Kris Van Assche began his career at YSL, and then mentored under Hedi Slimane at Dior Homme. The KRISVANASSCHE label began in 2005 with a show at Paris Fashion Week and is defined by classic lines and rugged masculinity. It’s menswear of the future today.
