Kris Van Assche was born in Belgium in 1976. After graduating from the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, he moved to Paris in 1998. Having worked for Yves Saint Laurent, then Dior Homme, he started his own label, KRISVANASSCHE in January 2005.

Over the seasons, KRISVANASSCHE has imprinted his highly personal vision on the masculine world, redefining and removing the established codes, imposing himself as a major French label. The KRISVANASSCHE collections reflect a transversal inspiration where the contemporary wardrobe mixes classical lines with the ruggedness of workwear as well as the technique of sportswear.
