Viktor & Rolf SS2015

Feb 25, 15 Viktor & Rolf SS2015

Flower theme that became a favorite of the spring-summer haute couture week did not also bypass the collection of the Dutch duo Viktor & Rolf, who played it with their usual unpredictable originality.
Unlike their colleagues, Viktor Horsting’s and Rolf Snoeren’s attitude to the haute couture line lies something between an experimental lab and a platform where fashion designers can express their ideas without constrains of commercial ready-to-wear lines. Judging by the collections, in the hearts of the designers reigns the spring, it all made up of almost repetitive looks, including an XL size baby-doll trapeze dress, a straw hat in an ornament of meter length wheat ears and rubber flip-flops. Changes only the immutably bright color palette of the surreal set and the density of flower appliqué, some of which crawl to such an extent that go beyond the actual dresses.
To be fair we should note that the new collection, comparing to the previous one, is relatively “wearable” (the shoes in particular). Although the best place for the floral works of high fashion art of Viktor & Rolf is still in the museum: no wonder the famous collector and patron of arts Han Nefkens already purchased three dresses before the show to donate them to the Rotterdam Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
