A.F. Vandevorst - fall 2012 - RTW

Models with faces completely obscured by swaddling scarves and hats brought forth ample knits and trench coats, cinched at the waist by wide leather belts. Initially leaving all to the imagination, arms were obscured with long leather gloves; legs covered by knit stockings or lush black leather boots. Later peaks of skin began to materialize. Revealed shoulders combined with  mid length skirts and dresses.  It seems designers Filip Arickx and An Vandevorst fancied playing with extremes. To balance it all out, lines were long, with many the floor length coat or dress dusting the ground in spools of silken chiffon.

Nicolas Andreas Taralis - Spring 2012 RTW

1 comment
Nicolas Andreas Taralis - tailor that worked for Dior Homme and Cerruti, realized that his dreams and future were much further away. So he created his own label, worked on numerous projects around the world and generated somewhat of a cult following for his renowned style. Taralis swapped last season's Victoriana for sci-fi. He loves George Lucas' first full-length film, THX 1138, and he used it as the starting point for his slightly futuristic collection. The collection was evenly divided between black and white, and certain pieces in that white cotton and later on in washed black leather had closed-in bands of Velcro along the torso. It gave them the edgy look of sci-fi uniforms.
