Viktor&Rolf’s fifth Haute Couture catwalk collection was an extraordinary multisensory experience.Garments were heavily embroidered with brass bells that, when worn, created a shimmering, sonorous effect of great elegance and mystery. The show was carefully choreographed to ensure that the eagerly waiting audience heard the garments before they emerged from shrouds of fog, visible for a brief moment before passing again into the mist. For Viktor&Rolf, the show was about creating an aura, grasping the intangible. One defining ensemble comprised a full-length dress of green silk crêpe georgette and an enormous coat fully covered with bells of various sizes. In some cases the bells worked to emphasize either the function or an element of a garment.
