    KVA's designs just don't lend themselves to the gum sole though, it just looks strange.

    I agree with you with the black multi-panel KVA's but in those white version, they work as a nice spring/summer shoe.

    I actually prefer these because of the contrasting panels and lacing

    Whatever123, if you mean where to get the KVAs, forwardforward has them for 500.4

    the KVA are decent but KVA just designs the same fucking thing over and over.

    +1 KvA had potential at the beginning but its always the same recycled shit over and over. it's even more prevalent when you consider the fact that he has two completely independent lines to design and they both look exactly the same. you'd think from a financial standpoint, either he himself or someone at dior would be telling him to wake the fuck up.

    As much as I hate KVA and Dior van Assche, I'm pretty sure the line's sell really well.

    You always see heaps of KVA and Dior on SuFu B&S, way more asian population over there. KVA and Dior still get bought up over here, and the mark up is rediculous. Assin in Melbourne, has full lines of Rick, Ann D, Lanvin, Dior and KVA.

    Dior and KVA are the best sellers, with KVA growing more popular every year. They openly say that they love Rick and Ann, but Dior and KVA are what keep them in business.

    Kind of agree, I genuinely like his collections from a few years ago when he was doing more 'sport' oriented work... But at the same time, his Dior stuff shows glimmers of really smart design too (the transparent stuff from s/s last year, etc). I just wish for his own line he didn't follow the drapey trend so much.
