Viktor & Rolf: SS16 Haute Couture
You’ve head of Gaga’s ArtPop? Well pop – here’s art fashion, courtesy of Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren. They revel in the label frequently attached to them – fashion artists. Last season it was snappy frames and canvas couture; this time a rumination on the white shirt went all Picasso, with jutting angular constructions of cloth smothering models’ bodies. It was a fierce proposition, and the models wound up looking like perambulating versions of the Cubist masterpieces they had in mind, albeit all tricked out in easy-to-launder white cotton. I wouldn’t try to wash and iron these at home though.
