A.F. Vandevorst F/W 13.14 Paris
This collection is tiny, only 16 looks! It's also kind of... not that good. Some of the tops are very ill-fitting and the ugly wigs are a huge turn-off. I only love the 3rd look.

yeah i love the classic vandevorst elements but i'm not crazy about those gowns except for the that blue satin look with the shirting attached.

This collection is a huge disappointment for me, particularly off the back of their last two collections. It's still good, but it doesn't have the indelible effect that AW12 and SS13 had. I hope A. Friend wasn't at the expense of their RTW collections.

Those peplum styled pieces can die a long, slow, painful death, but everything else looks pretty solid to me. I've seldom loved paisley so much. Those printed gowns are exquisite, I would love to see the right person show up to an event in one of those and make a mockery of the others in their popular house gowns. The short asymmetrical jackets emulate when you pull something around you really tightly for comfort when you're outside, and I think it's quite sexy and brilliant to actually construct pieces that way.

Is it as strong as their usual collections, no. Am I just a huge fan girl who loves everything they do, admittedly a little. It truly does resonate with me though.

I find this collection utterly fascinating. Not something I would wear, but something I could look at and appreciate as art.

Agree on the gowns; the hair bugged me though.

I like the idea of the big bangs, with only visible pinky-redish lips .... I feel like they wanted us to focus only on the clothes...

All you need women to be gorgeous as a godess is a good lipstick and an amazing outfit ...

are the girls wearing long gloves ? or is it painted black ?

The hands were painted in black.

I think this collection suffers because of its smallness. There are great ideas here not fully explored, reiterated, combined. I thought the pants were terrible and the gowns very lovely, especially the last one. Strange that those who had a strong showing last season had such sophomoric efforts (Haider Ackermann, A.F. Vandevorst)

So, yeah, not their strongest collection. I'm still gaga over that first jacket though.
