Viktor&Rolf Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2018 is a surreal exploration of the archetypal intimate Haute Couture defilé. The show venue ‘La Gaite Lyrique’ is transformed into a mysterious bal masqué and the collection has a quintessentially Viktor&Rolf twist: everything is rendered in one iconic couture material: satin duchesse. Working with just one fabric might seem opposite to Haute Couture’s spirit of limitless abundance but it actually triggers creativity. After several seasons of exploring recycling, this collection puts forward another vision of conscious design: to make more of less. Limitations stimulate creativity.
