He studied at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp from 1994 until 1998. Upon graduating, he moved to Paris where he was hired to work for Yves Saint Laurent. In 2005, he went on to present his first collection of men's clothing during Paris Fashion Week.
After graduating Van Assche moved to Paris in 1998. He was immediately appointed at Yves Saint Laurent as Hedi Slimane's first assistant for the Rive Gauche Homme line. The collaboration with Slimane continued at Christian Dior for the launching and development of the Dior Homme collection until September 2004. In January 2005, Van Assche finally presented his own men's collection for the first time in Paris during Men's Fashion Week. He subsequently served as the artistic director for Dior Homme from April 2007 to March 2018.
In addition to his work at Dior, Van Assche founded his own label. In June 2013, he opened the first KRISVANASSCHE boutique in Paris. Designed by Ciguë, it was located in the 1st arrondissement, at 16 rue Saint Roch. In late May 2015, after several years of collections often judged as irrelevant by the critics and a style outdated by the new Londoner designers (such as JW Anderson or Christopher Shannon), Van Assche announced that he was closing his personal label for the time being, due to the difficulties of being an independent label.
In April 2018, Van Assche was confirmed as the new creative director at luxury brand Berluti, another LVMH company, following the departure of Haider Ackermann. His debut Berluti collection was released January 2019.
For the 2019 Design Miami fair, Van Assche joined forces with art dealer François Laffanour to present a collection of 17 original Pierre Jeanneret furniture pieces, restored by Laffanour and upholstered with Berluti’s emblematic Venezia leather.
Kris was born and raised in Londerzeel, Belgium.
