Making A. Friend

Friends come in all shapes and sizes, colors and creeds, proportions and persuasions, ranging from Facebook friends and BFFs to friends with benefits and friends of Dorothy. Which means there’s undoubtedly something for you in A.F. Vandevorst‘s new second line, A. Friend. Which apparently took a village to make happen, with the Belgian duo asking their friends what they would change if they could make one itty-bitty alteration to an already perfect label. Can you guess the answer? Yup, lower prices. Presto, done. But while A. Friend, composed mostly of basic jersey and knit pieces draped and knotted in interesting ways, is more affordable than the main line, customers are promised the same “creativity and energy.” We hope so, because “unfriend” is the newest word in the New Oxford American Dictionary and we’re not afraid to use it! A. Friend will be available at A.F. Vandevorst’s Guerrilla Store in Antwerp, launching December 17, along with their Fetish, Nightfall and Relics lines.
