A.F. Vandevorst’s SS18 collection finds its artistic roots in motocross. Per tradition, the brand is heavily influenced by their favourite muse - the nomadic woman ready to experience. This season their muse gracefully embraces the off-road and speed of the motocross grounds.

The bright colours of the dirt track, primary and modernist, have been toned down, softened, creating more refined pieces. Motocross clothing and bike form, with the thin tires and large mudguards, provoked the use of
leather, big letters and roughed up style. The ‘Fireworks’ shoes, recognisable by their enticing glitter, are the ultimate night-time go-to. The nouveau sneaker, with asymmetric details, demands a second look. Boots featuring accentuating lines create flattering forms. To celebrate the first shoe-only collection and the brand’s ultimate muse, a new returning boot is introduced this year: the iconic ‘Nomad boot’. Inspired by LA beaches, where artists paint temporary tattoos on legs and
feet, the elegant form rocks a beautiful henna-like print.

The brand will show their Spring/Summer 2018 couture collection at Paris Haute Couture in January 2018.
