About Kris Van Assche


Kris Van Assche was born in Belgium in 1976. After graduating from the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, he moved to Paris in 1998. Having worked for Yves Saint Laurent then Dior Homme, he started his own label KRISVANASSCHE in January 2005. He has also been the Artistic  Director for Dior Homme since April 2007.





Over the seasons, Kris Van Assche has imprinted his highly personal vision on the masculine world, redefining and moving the established codes, imposing his brand as a major French label. The KRISVANASSCHE collections reflect a transversal inspiration where the contemporary wardrobe mixes classical lines with the ruggedness of workwear as well as the technique of sportswear. The elegance at KRISVANASSCHE is softened and expresses itself through essential pieces of clothing that adapt to the multiple lives of those who wear them.

Regular collaborations, in particular with Eastpak and Lee, have helped expand KRISVANASSCHE’s creativity and reputation with the mainstream.

In June 2013, KRISVANASSCHE opened its first store in Paris. The 80 square meter space situated 16 rue Saint Roch in the 1st arrondissement carries the brand’s ready to wear collections as well as the accessories and footwear collections on two floors.
