    That AW 01 collection is incredible. My friend has boots like these, but they came from a later collection. That leather cat-o-nine-tails is beyond sexy.

    The book is kinda lame. It's not really about their clothes, but about Russia as their inspiration. I did not like it enough to buy it.

    I knew very little about her work so thanks for sharing! I echo Laika about the models on hospital beds.

    I get the same sort of feeling for CCPs early work, conceptual and extremely thought trough.. I also love the photography, analogue washed out colors!

    Not sure if this is the right thread, but here's a write up of their upcoming GUERILLA STORE AKTION I, in Antwerp.

    from fashionwindows.net



    DALLAS & PARIS, Dec 3, 2009 / FW/ Calling a spade a spade, A.F. Vandevorst is launching its latest project, GUERILLA STORE AKTION I, a pop up store that will be open in Antwerp, Belgium from Dec 17, 2009 to Mar 31, 2010, after which it will move to a new city for others to discover.
    Pop up stores are a type of guerilla-style marketing wherein like the merchants of yore, they set shop from place to place wherever and whenever a fair is being held. The medieval fairs merchants might be gone, but the concept still lives on.
    Speaking of concepts, the idea behind the GUERILLA STORE AKTION I is to create a space in which people can fall into the world of A.F. Vandevorst; such a world that includes fashion, and more.
    The Antwerp store will just be the first one; after which it will be reconstructed in a different city, even country. Every store will be installed in an unoccupied space for a maximum of three months.
    Unoccupied premises will include former boutiques, launderettes, bakeries and other unique places. The search for each new space will add a challenge as well as provoke creativity in the project of the guerilla store.
    The guerilla stores will house all collections: A.F. Vandevorst, A. Friend, Fetish, Nightfall and Relics. In addition to this, all artistic collaborations between A.F. Vandevorst and others will be revealed and some of these will allow the customer to interact.
    Some of the institutions which A.F. Vandevorst would like to support will have a place in the concept, the first of which is the Dr. Guislain Museum from Ghent, Belgium. Without the involvement of others, the Aktion I project will not be guerilla. Therefore, most of the concept will be made possible due to the help of sponsors and other A.F. Vandevorst minded friends.

    I wonder where else the store will pop up?

    "Russia is raw. Our collections also have the same kind of rawness to them. There is something brutish about them, but they are refined at the same time."

    "Uniforms emanate strength and pride. For our own collections, we have often worked around uniforms of one kind or another. We are fascinated by the effects that an article of clothing can generate. In fact, this does not even have anything to do with fashion."
