A.F. Vandevorst Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
Whether you hop, skip, or jump in any of A. F. Vandevorst's Fall 2019 collection pieces, the entire lot is still not impressive enough! There was a lack of practicality in the line, as well as little to no sense at all! And in this day and age, are such frivolities really necessary? We don't think so!

Take a look at A.F. Vandevorst’s Fall 2019 lookbook and try to convince us that it doesn’t remind you of the Power Rangers! And it’s not because of the frozen poses that we’re reminded of the superhero franchise, it’s that gimmicky fully-covered first look and the bright and garish hues used to color the entire collection. An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx claim that this season, they were heavily influenced by movement, and while these clothes do look neat when the wearer is jumping about, they don’t seem all that interesting when they’re static. And let’s face it, how often do you jump about in such clothes and will there even be a camera there to catch that exact moment as it did in this presentation? In our opinion, this is yet another case of poor execution of creative ideas. We get what they were going for with those softly-tailored suits and pleated skirts and dresses. But even with the limited detailed view from the lookbook, we can already gather that the construction is questionable. Even that tan hoodie—arguably one of the easiest pieces to create today—didn’t look all that desirable. It’s a shame, really, because this would have been a fantastic A. F. Vandevorst line with such an astounding presentation. But alas, everything about it was underwhelming!
