Photographed by Rokas Rach and styled Christopher Preston is Kris Van Assche’s SS/14 collection he called ‘Cognac Sport’. ”‘Cognac’, because of the ‘elegant males’ it brings to mind. The type to be wearing (real) crocodile shoes, and polka dot ties. ‘Sport’ because of the colour green that brings to mind certain ‘all-time sneaker-classics’, the K-way inspirations with the yellow zippers, and the overall energy” I am always looking for in a show”, said Van Asche in an interview with Hero Magazine.
The look is tailored with a sporty edge; mixing graphics and unique crocodile print treatments with boxy minimal silhouettes. The aesthetic lies on the line where boy meets man.
