I've been meaning to blog about Viktor & Rolf for a while now, as my friend Mollie is crazy about this designing duo. And crazy their autumn/winter 2007 show was. The models had to carry their own lighting rigs which were attached to the clothes, and they had to walk down the catwalk in clogs. Who said that modelling was easy?
The clothes themselves seemed to be inspired by the designers' Dutch background and Flemish folklore. I loved the floral prints that were used. I also liked the grey tones and mixture of fabrics in the collection which featured some lovely day wear pieces. I'd love to try and recreate the outfit on the top right - minus the clogs of course; so unpractical.
The way in which some of the dresses were clipped up made the models look like the had wings, particularly the white dress which makes her look rather angelic. I thought the pleating was rather effective in the dress on the right. Jessica Stam looks lovely in her dress; I love the berry tones and the print is gorgeous. Overall, although the clothes weren't the main talking point at first, I do really like this collection.
