Viktor&Rolf’s Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2016 collection is created using select fabrics and garments from past seasons. Starting from scratch, fashion artists Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren use mementos from a multitude of past collections as a basis for their new creations. Fabrics are torn, mixed up and woven by hand to create new voluminous shapes and textures. Vintage pieces, including items from Viktor&Rolf's own archive, are used as a starting point for elaborately decorated garments. Embroideries consist of dense, organic mixtures of repurposed buttons, beads and crystals.
Performance of Sculptures
For Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2016, the House of Viktor&Rolf further explores the notion of Wearable Art with a surreal merger of sculpture and clothing. This season, the collection explores the idea of the archetypical white polo shirt meeting cubism. Resulting in a collection consisting of a series of form studies where clothing and sculptural elements interact with an increasing degree of complexity. The designs blur the boundaries between garment and sculpture, and question the relationship between wearer and clothing, sometimes overtaking the body and obscuring the face of the wearer. The sculpture is humanized and the wearer, sculpted: thus composing the performance of sculptures.Discover the Collection
For Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2015, the house of Viktor&Rolf reaffirms the roots as mapped out by Richard Martin 17 years ago. More than ever true to their core, fashion artists Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren use a mingling of fashion and art as a means of expression, presenting a collection of wearable art. Art comes to life in a gallery of surreal proportions. A dress transforms into an artwork, back into a dress and into an artwork again. Poetry becomes reality, morphing back into fantasy.Discover the collection
Van Gogh Girls
Viktor&Rolf’s Spring/Summer 2015 Haute Couture collection is inspired by the raw energy of Vincent van Gogh’s exuberant depiction of the rural countryside. Flowerprint A-line babydoll dresses paired with straw hats and flipflops form the basis for a collection of increasingly colourful and sculptural looks.Discover the Collection
