Haughty, militarian chich rode high at the A.F. Vanderhorst show for SS12. Cropped soldier boy jackets with asymmetric buttoning and frogging were paired with dandyish capes and flowing robes. Gothic fairytale style headdresses made of jet black feathers, stood tall to add impact to the miliatrian look whilst golden embelishment on more wearable pieces glistened in comparison. The collection did not lose momentum, with sharp notes of further symmetry seen adding drama to skirts and dresses in light beige. At the finale, the models bowed as if they were demomstrating knightly respect, which fit perfectly with their regimental pieces.
