Viktor & Rolf: Van Gogh à Go-go
Suzy Menkes at Paris Couture 2015: Day Four
29 Января 2015
Viktor & Rolf has always bean a brand to make an impression, but this season they turned themselves into Impressionists.
Van Gogh and his famous sunflower paintings were the inspiration for their wild and wonderful straw hats, with ultra-long sheaves of wheat all but concealed the colourful floral dresses underneath.
The design duo of Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren has been so successful with fragrance that I wondered what they could extract from this idea. “Impressionist!” Perhaps — with the exclamation point essential. Whatever their intentions, it made for a light-hearted summer show.
