    i don't agree with that comparison. because if you were to look at their past you could clearly see these elements are all them. in my eyes,i think if you were to cross their a/w 00(the equestrian inspired collection)with their s/s 01(the brown and butterscotch lingerie stuff that was inspired by they shoot horses don't they?)and the ecclesiastical stuff of their a/w 01 and the volumes of s/s 02....i think you would have this. it's just very classic,strong a.f. vandevorst.

    I agree that this is pure Vandervorst redux. All the signatures are there, just perhaps never in this winning combination.

    I know I shouldn't say this but, I secretly imagine this is what Maison Margiela SHOULD look like these days...I see MANY margiela components.
    Maybe they could have a bout at a collaboration, no?

    ^i agree bidwell.

    as for the margiela aspect,an does have experience with margiela so maybe that's why there is that distinction. but they've always had a bit of that undercurrent in their work. thankfully,fused so much with other elements and wrapped in their own aesthetic.

    I agree about the Margiela comments. Haven't enjoyed any of his r-t-w collections (besides the Menswear) in so many seasons... it's maddening. The pants tucked in the stockings fits so nicely with Margiela's aesthetic, but you're quite right, Scott, besides the obvious parallels, it is very Vandevorst in every respect...

    I find Antwerpan designers to be quite good at that. Dries, Ann, Raf (most of the time............). An and Filip too. :heart:

    ^apart from zowie and brian an & filip are the coolest couple.

    i love how that last top swaths over the back kind of like a sash bag. as if you are on some of sort of desert journey. they definitely utilised the elements unexpectedly.

    finally, a house brave enough to put forward the literal embodiment of the uncertain mood we're all feeling these days in this not-yet-over economic thunderstorm. she's windswept, determined, haphazard, but beautiful. also, there's not a piece in this collection that couldn't work it's way into any woman's wardrobe should they just have the courage to give it a second look.

    while i agree the styling may have paid the clothes a disservice (as some find themselves much more conservative than this styling would imply), this show did what real fashion shows ought: present us with a strong and unique vision of how to move forward through our modern world.

    a personal best for them and a best of season.
    i could not love it more--the balance of beauty and edginess is perfect,
    as zazie said so eloquently.
    i love the windblown hair and the interplay of chiffon and skin. :heart:
