Kris Van Assche

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I was happy to see Kris Van Assche return to his elegantly sexy, always nonchalent signature style after last season’s foray into sportswear. An interesting challange for sure but this is the Kris that I know and love. The pieces are modern, romantic and comfortable and what is the most convincing is that Kris looks exactly like his clothes.


The crowd loved him. I am impatient to see what he will come up with for Dior.


I ran into some more friends at the Kris Van Assche show:

Thierry Dreyfus, lighting master and Angelo Flaccevento, journalist and shadedview contributor looking more than sexy in his slim white trousers.

Everybody knows the wonderful photos of the Sartorialist. We thought that we would have a little fun together. He never covers up those beautiful blue eyes.

Men’s collections are always more relaxed so relaxed that you can even find time for lunch. I could not resist taking this image of a woman on the metro.

lunch with friends the team from Persuade in Bilbao, the dream team, Graham and Miguel and Mario Canal.
