“I have always wanted to build bridges between the savoir-faire, the heritage of a house and my clear-cut contemporary vision. Antoine Arnault spoke to me of his ambitions for Berluti and it is with great pleasure that I accept this new challenge which fits perfectly with my own will and vision,” Van Assche said in a statement. After his time at Dior Homme, where he incorporated sleek fitted tailoring and a dark sophisticarted look over 11 years, it’s interesting to see what he’ll bring to a different house.
He will present his first collection for the designer during Paris Men’s Fashion Week in January 2019.
