"And she had at least a hundred old baseballs that she’d taken from kids, and she collected bones of all kinds…” - First Kiss by Tom Waits

True to her unrestrained spirit, multi-functionality has become a design signifier. The bags of the Spring - Summer 2017 collection are portraying 'diversity in function', which is defined by multiple leather straps and a double-sided difference in colour. The versatile wearability alludes to a sense of timelessness and flexibility.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL BAGS

A.F.VANDEVORST X VINTAGE

Wednesday 31 May 2017

"Desired for the alternative soul, where electro-pop and hints of rock sound in the air…"

Within the cacophony and chaos of the Pukkelpop concert, we shine a light on the characteristic unlined bomber jackets which are laced along the sleeves. This significant style is carried out in a variety of red, army, black and white. The Spring - Summer 2017 collection shows how remnants can be thrown over wedding wear in a rare graceful way.

VINTAGE

A.F.VANDEVORST X WEAVER LACE

Friday 19 May 2017

“She would sing about Elkheart, IndianaWhere the wind is wrong and folks mind their own business…” - First Kiss by Tom Waits

Her lace lingerie is one of the refined elements in the Spring - Summer 2017 collection. Combined with the remains of her wedding dress, lingerie becomes outerwear which is in this story a subtle liberal statement. The lace designs are created carefully and portray a sensual weaver structure. This gives her body space to breath, while the silhouette exhales an empowered sense of elegance.

A.F.VANDEVORST X SLANTING HEELS

Saturday 13 May 2017

"Found by her bridal party in an open field, where the edge of the woods has allowed for a music festival to manifest..."

The euphoric festival spirit of this season is translated into a diagonal signifier. The slanting heel is one of the main characteristics
of the Spring Summer 2017 collection. In line with her belief and behavior, she is now literally leaned back, focussed on pure joy.
Both the boots and the suppler sneakers this season are infusing a typical element of sportswear.

A.F.VANDEVORST X BELGIAN EMBASSY

Tuesday 25 April 2017

MOMU Antwerp invited A.F. Vandevorst to create an installation for the Belgian Embassy in The Hague. A.F. Vandevorst was honored
to reinstall the ‘Winter Garden’ of the residence, which is filled with daylight and surrounded by nature. As an Embassy provides
communication and cultural exchange, the space exhales the feel of a sanatorium. Within this safe environment, the installation
conveys a sense of security within the Belgian haven. A place to shelter, heal and forgather.

Friday 21 April 2017

And she wore leather boots, and her lips were like cherries…” - First kiss by Tom waits

A subtle deconstruction of garments creates renewed silhouettes for SS17. With precise details twisting elements, forcing them
to drift from the body made the clothes appear to be slipping, twisting and sliding around the body.

A.F.VANDEVORST X MATHIEU MILJAVAC

Wednesday 5 April 2017

"Her wedding dress was cut and shredded, leaving strips of corset and lace, resulting in a surprisingly modern frock…”

Taking the idea of flying away into the literal, artist Mathieu Miljavac made a unique sculptural dove installation which was crafted to sit on the shoulders of a black laced top. Black, grey and white dove prints are seen on billowing dresses, tops and leather boots.
