Awesome!

It just makes so much sense with all these independent names getting back in the game too. Now I'm only crossing fingers for Bruno Pieters.

Great to know! But if I'm not mistaken, VB and Raf Simons used to be a couple, now good friends, so it isn't surprising to sense a kindred spirit between VB and Jil Sander.

i think what was always so fascinating about watching branquinho was seeing the evolution in her work. she literally grew up with every collection she produced. her early years were so supremely beautiful and i hold them very dear to me but they had a drama and a certain sense of rebellion....but as the noughties rolled in,the feeling moved away from that sort of adolescent drama into grown up,almost classical clothes. nevertheless,the one attribute,or two,shall i say,that remained so very true to branquinho was her unabashed sense of simplicity and craft. i can recall visiting the louis shop in antwerp where her full range was carried and i was just so taken by all the little elements you never blatantly saw in a photo or on a catwalk. there was still this mystery about her work,an inspection one had to experience in person that often left me feeling utterly delighted. to be honest there's not enough mystery in fashion anymore.

Jil, Hedi and now Veronique! *swoon* (Now let me dream of Hemlut's return in spite how unlikely that actually is.)
I hope whatever she has to offer, she does so within her old decorum, mixing masculine and feminine a lot, which I can never get enough of... She's surely been missed when it comes to RTW, her intellectual and sentimental approach should bring a bit of that mystery scott previously mentioned which uninspired fashion of today significantly lacks.
Will she show in Sept then?

^ Yes, several Belgian sources mention that Branquinho will re-establish her label with Gib Co. SpA in September

It's lovely to hear a designer who suffered through the recession is coming back. It being Veronique makes it doubly special.

^thank you!

I love what she says (following the dark mood/doom generation quote)
about not taking her influences as literally now and how that's part
of growing up....smart smart.

Also, Markus Schinwald.
