Viktor&Rolf's Spring/Summer 2014 Haute Couture collection blurs the border where skinends and where clothes begin. Of the collection, designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren said: "We wanted a soft, sweet and feminine look, that is modern and edgy at the same time." Body-hugging, skintight silhouettes are combined with fluid draperies while the sugary sweet colour palette consists of skin tones and soft pinks. To counterbalance the sweetness, the collection is entirely executed in latex - a material chosen for its close resemblance to skin. Embellishments, reminiscent of tattoos, are all hand-painted. The tattooed decorations are trompe l'oeils, inspired by clothing elements like bows and ruffles - as such they perform a surreal function.
