Often understated in his approach, designer Kris Van Assche has recently shown an affinity for an overarching casual influence across the majority of his designs. When Van Assche showcased his eponymous KRISVANASSCHE runway presentation for Spring/Summer 2013, the aesthetic was one of minimalism and neutral hues. But, amidst this unassuming approach, each of the reinterpreted classics have a strong sense of identity via careful tailoring, offbeat waist details and uniquely elasticized cuffs.
The effortless approach flows over into the KRISVANASSCHE footwear range this season as the designer has released two “Multi Laces Sneakers.” Offered up in predominantly black and white iterations as well as an all-white everything tonal execution, the shoes feature a prominent, heavily-laced leather vamp and tongue. The black silhouette showcases exposed tonal laces while the white sneaker guises the knotted laces with a singular leather panel that trails the entire upper vamp of the shoe. With rear heel zipper detailing, metal eyelets and matching stitching, the Multi Laces Sneaker brings a sense of cohesion to Van Assche’s contemporary direction.
