designer love: viktor & rolf spring 2010 rtw

leave a comment »

I have recently developed an intense passion for Viktor & Rolf.  When I originally saw their Spring 2010 collection, I passed it off as too “avant-garde,” too out there for my tastes.  But the more I saw the pieces (in various magazine editorials and on random celebrities) the more I came to appreciate them.  Viktor & Rolf’s use of color-blocking, ruffles, and appliques give each piece a sense of balance and movement.  Every garment is an innovative take on a simpler, basic outfit that is omnipresent in society.  The underlying structure of a suit or cocktail dress, for example, is apparent, but the layers and positioning of ruffles add an original, tangible quality to the pieces.  In fewer words, this collection is a breath of fresh air, and I’m glad to see this collection has taken its rightful place as a photo shoot favorite.
