Jan Jan Van Essche Collection #5: Inité

Jan-Jan-Van-Essche-Inite-1

Creole for “unity,” Jan-Jan Van Essche‘s fifth collection “Inité” draws from Haitian influences. Simplifying his patterns, the Belgian menswear designer and winner of the prestigious Dries Van Noten award reduces the seams in his garments to offer yet another spin on his idea of a uniform.
“All is gathered… unity thrives,” he says, almost mystically.
