    Perhaps their most emblematic image \/


    The logo, akin to the red crosses on nurses' uniforms


    One of their most famous collections, with models laying on military hospital beds.

    Oh my, thanks for taking the time to capture this. Quite amazing how putting work in the context it was intended for stirs the soul...abruptly.

    I'm gob struck by this image...which i'm sure was your intention

    I'd love to know more about this nurse/hospital theme - some sort of commentary of femininity, sex/death perhaps?

    this one is especially for rider.
    This collection of A.F. Vandevorst is a work around horses.
    Their femininity and grace as well as the force and purity of this animal are translated in the silhouette. The robust element reveals in structured forms and masculine garments as overcoats, men shirts, corduroy pants, long johns and solid boots. This aspect is emphasized by the use of raw and firm fabrics: felt, leather, tweed, corduroy and heavy cotton, in woollen check-patterns and in knitwear. The elegant counterpart is represented in fluid lines of bias cutted dresses and skirts, mostly knee-length or , and refined fabrics as silk chiffon, viscose and flowing wool. The grace of the manes, raw or braided, is reworked in the back of shirts and dresses and fully expressed in the hairstyle of the models. These two opposite senses lead their own way through the collection but find themselves reunited in one garment. Crucial for this winter collection are the elements of a saddle; its form as well as the artisan method of assembling and riveting. All of this is manufactured in tones of brown and natural with vivid colours such as violet, grass, red and white.
