VIKTOR & ROLF | SPRING / SUMMER 2011
Fashion duo, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren have always experimented with extreme proportions.
For their Spring / Summer line-up, Horsting and Snoeren explore their perceptions of the shirt.
Working their surrealist Viktor & Rolf vision on the humble staple; there was the opening shirt with multiple collars and cuffs, a draped shirt dress with lopsided collars, a clown shaped shirt attached to the torso of a bodysuit, a shirt with tails, a sheer shirt with below knee long lapels, a black satin coat made in the cut of a granddad shirt from embroidered strips, bibbed shirt front designs, micro jersey and satin dresses with shirt collars and other clever shirt inspired designs.
The shirt inspired designs were shown with shorts, tailored satin cigarette pants and miniskirts.
The collection rounded up with finale bridal gowns featuring Viktor & Rolf’s usual play on proportion. Each fantastical design had multiple, sumo sized, cuffed sleeves, shirt collars and lapels.
