Kris Van Assche tapped a playful vein for fall. His youthful proposition included casually tailored three-piece suits, hinged on abbreviated jackets with sailing knots in lieu of buttons and tailored sports jerseys functioning as the vest. They looked smart not only underneath the jackets, but also when worn on top, creating novel silhouettes via contrasting colors and textures.
Pixelated, confettilike patterns applied to shirts and sweaters were reminiscent of old-school video games, while fuzzy patches borrowed from college varsity jackets were stitched on a range of garments. They also lent this sporty-chic lineup a naïve, boyish air.
