In absence of real-time catwalk shows, for Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2021 Viktor&Rolf propose a 'Couture Rave': an imaginary show inspired by parties that were and parties to come. While aiming to provide a lighthearted escape into fantasy, both collection and presentation also have a gritty edge. Traditionally 'beautiful' couture references are put into a raw, young context. Haute Couture meets underground party.

Behind The Scenes
Extravagant, 'serious' ballgown couture skirts accentuate the waist and draw attention to the upper part of the body. Sporting dégradé ruffles, volants and voluminous tulle, they are combined with body hugging, uncovered couture 'bra' tops, heavily embroidered in metal, lace, crystals and vintage jewellery. This season, several garments are made using vintage, 'lost and found' jewelry pieces and diamanté pins.
