Viktor&Rolf haute couture spring/summer 2019
This season, Viktor&Rolf present a group of exaggerated romantic tulle dresses. Volumes are grand but airy, with transparent ruffles, flounces and bows. The entire colourful collection is made out of 8 kilometers of tulle.
The silhouettes, sculptural and extreme, ranging from various A-lines to hourglass, are astutely expressive: each dress provides the backdrop for a bold text which is executed in layers of laser-cut tulle. These texts are mainly one-liners: slogans with the kind of simplification typical of social media captions or souvenir T-shirts. The juxtaposition of these seemingly unrelated elements results in a typical Viktor&Rolf expression of surreal beauty.
