Kris Van Assche extends to us a more thorough expression of just what the future holds for ‘Berluti 1896 Paris’. Since taking the helm as artistic director in April of this year, Kris Van Assche has been busy preparing for his first runway presentation with the house; taking place at next year’s Paris Fashion Week Men’s in January. While this Spring/Summer 2019 capsule collection focuses mainly on the essentials from the LVMH-owned label, it does give us an exemplary taste of what’s to come from Kris Van Assche.

At first glass, KVA’s affection for navy, black, white and grey are seen throughout, but also bold solid colors like red and green help cement key pieces of footwear and accessories — seen in the chunky leather sneakers, and on the keychains. Continuing his discipline for attention to detail and fit, tailoring is again brought back into the light in the two-button suit jacket, tuxedo in black and white, and poplin shirt.

Mixing traditional suiting with activewear, we also see a letter jacket, and tracksuit, and bomber jacket. Kris Van Assche also leaves his imprint on Berluti’s classic ‘Alessandro’ oxford, as the sole thickness has now been increased, and the range has been expanded to offer less traditional colors. The capsule feels somewhat familiar, but at the same time is enough of a divergence that is sure to have many fans excited.
