Kris Van Assche presents KRISVANASSCHE+, a tailoring-focused complimentary collection to the main line.
Building upon the brand’s well-established foundation of sportswear-infused formalwear, this new line is composed of three different looks, each comprising several pieces with upscale tailoring and handwork detailing, with red accents tuning throughout.
Three two-button jackets – one long, two short – and three trousers – a chino style and two cargo pants – comprise the tailoring quotient. With red thread hand-stitch detailing, the items are available in resolutely masculine black/grey woolen fabrics including micro-check, fine stripes and birds-eye weave. Cotton poplin shirts in white or red are either traditional button-downs with covered plackets, or fusion pieces with jersey detailing. Corresponding solid ties are in red or black silk.
Grey marl casual cotton jersey sportswear is injected with unexpectedly sartorial touches in the form of an appliquéd “plus” motif, top-stitched creases, and contrast red drawstrings.
The multi-season collaboration with Eastpak continues here with two backpack styles in classic or XL sizes, in the same blackgrey micro-check or birds-eye wool as the suiting, with adjustable straps and red hard-shell bases.
We’ve come a long way since being a man was anything concerning the physical exertion of entrusting chirpy spermatozoa to an ovum, going on the piss all day long or counting proudly the chest hair to assess virility- let’s say that men were more confident dressing the part of the ‘I-wear-the-pants’ in the past.

The translation of a utopian society, where the globalisation era in which we are cherishing our lives is awashed with a multitude of careless interpretations of various subjects, political upheaval, natural disasters and such and such matters, renders a conceptual inspiration to BOYPLAIN’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection, titled ‘All You Need Is Remedy’.
Cover story captured by Matt Irwin and art directed by Nicola Formichetti with actor and singer Olly Alexander, an openly gay singer who doesn’t use ambiguity in his lyrics to make him pass for straight, in order to entice a legion of screaming girls. FY! also analyse various points of view of what an outsider is through editorials, texts and interviews with among others Ahmed Abdelrahman, Demna Gvasalia and Henrik Silvius.
