Abstract patterns and sporty dress shirts signify the end of ‘boring’ grey suits, refreshing tired menswear codes

Initial reaction:

Entitled “Concrete”, the collection sought to reshape the “boring” grey suit so that it was anything but. Kris Van Assche excels at de-formalising menswear codes, so striped dress shirts were rendered in sporty nylon and parkas made luxe with shiny silks, while double-breasted suits were flecked with an abstract pattern.  


In the long corridor of the Gallery of Mineralogy at the Paris Natural History Museum, the parquet floor was covered in autumnal leaves. All the better for the hiking boot/trainer hybrid shoes to crunch on. The gallery’s mineral exhibits chimed in with the stone-like shapes that acted as motifs throughout the collection.   

Stand out pieces:

The ovoid patterned knits that dominated the show and the double-breasted grey coats with misplaced zippers.
