Composed of actual blazers and trousers, the A/W18 shoe collection truly embodies tailoring materials and forms. Blazers patterns are highly recognizable in the sleeves boots where the original shoulder now hides the knee. Trousers patterns can be found in motor and army trousers high boots and lined dinner trousers boots. Other 'sleeve' boots are made from Japanese Sukajan jackets, with unique embroidered patches.
A.F.VANDEVORST is a Belgian fashion brand, based in Antwerp. Designers An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx met in 1987 on their first day of school at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Ten years later, they set up their company Blixa and presented their first collection as A.F.VANDEVORST in Paris. The collection already included all of the references and inspirations that came to play a defining role in the brand over the past 20 years: Joseph Beuys, the red cross, religion, horses and horse-riding accoutrements, rivets, lingerie, uniforms and fetish shoes.
