A.F.Vandevorst opened Mercede-Benz Fashion Week runway at Bebelplatz this morning.The Belgian duo Filip Arickx und An Vandevorst debuted 1998 in Paris, which is their regular platform since then. In Berlin they showed their second line A.Friend. I follow their work (the main line) since many years and my very high expectations were not pleased in all aspects. Highlights of asymmetrical, body-close cuts in a brownish, rose, red and black colour range consist in the details: the red line on the back of each model and on stockings, sleeves, the models hairdo, covering their faces, overlong gloves, belts with attached elements as little bags and gloves. The work on knitwear, especially cardigans and gauntlets seemed to somehow miss the twist / be unfinished to me.
