Kris Van Assche Relives His Boyhood Days for Dior Homme

Karl Lagerfeld, one of Dior Homme’s biggest clients, pronounced Kris Van Assche’s latest collection “one of his best, if not the best.” Strong words from one of fashion’s greatest, but they were unequivocally true. For Spring 2017, Van Assche sent punk-inspired athletic wear down the runway in Paris, models storming the catwalk underneath a suspended roller coaster covered in flashing lights. For the Belgian designer, the collection was about tapping into his childhood and his years spent at Sinksenfoor, a now defunct local theme park. “This season there is a sense of collective consciousness to the collection—a remix of shared boyhood memories,” he said in a release. “I am interested in a synthesis of generations and filtering subcultures through my own lens to tell a new story.”
