"Geek chic gets punk rock," one reviewer praised Kris Van Assche's Menswear collection – but actually, "Kraftwerkian" might be the operative term for this sterile yet eminently wearable collection. Known for his bleeding-edge tailoring skills, Van Assche accrued a regiment of immaculately manicured men to parade his latest inspiration: work uniforms of different walks of life, presented in contrasting volumes. For all the tweaks to fit and silhouette, bursts of color like the cobalt blue sweater wrap (fitted with a belt) provided the most intriguing and androgynous highlights.
