Out of all the daunting denim choices out there today, it’s the old tried-and-true, been-around-forever brands that still have the most cachet. Case in point: men’s designer Kris Van Assche’s new collaboration with Lee. For LEE KRISVANASSCHE, the Dior Homme creative director teamed up with the heritage denim company to revisit the worker-style timelessness of Lee’s most-beloved hits—i.e. jacket, shirt, five-pocket jeans—to reflect the essence of modern masculinity.
Available this summer in two colorways—workwear blue and dark brown—the pieces combine the once-ubiquitous, logo-embossed leather label with tone-on-tone layering to achieve Van Assche’s signature minimal elegance. Say bonjour to your newest must-have.
