‘When I was 16 or 18 we used to go to these small clubs in Belgium. The highest ‘wave’ of New Wave was over, but we were still listening to that music in those dark little clubs’, says Belgian designer Kris Van Assche in the AW16 print issue of Something About. Inspired by the night time adventures of Dior Homme’s Creative Director, we shot the Parisian brand’s lauded AW16 collection in the small hours of the day; the morning after clubs have closed and parties are all but hazy memories.
