I don’t think I was alone in wondering “How the hell did they do that??!?!” when model Anja Rubik stalked down the Viktor & Rolf runway looking like a wonky Cinderella in mint green tulle. Not content with being the dictionary definition of “cool”, they’ve also uncovered the secret of anti-gravity? Do their talents know no bounds, or are models now so skinny they actually float?
Sadly, gravity is one ‘bound’ that Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren are yet to defy, but I think it’s the only thing kerbing their super-designer capabilities. Give them a cloak, some spangly pants and the gift of flight and they’re ready to take over the world, ridding the streets of run-of-the-mill frocks and tracksuit bottoms for eternity. After all, who needs comfort when you can look like a Christmas present? Featuring enough froth to make Swan Lake look budget, their Spring/Summer ‘10 collection flicked two fingers to recession practicality and administered a long overdue injection of frivolous fun. Now, what did I do with that pumpkin…?
1 x Viktor & Rolf, SS’10 Ready to Wear gown = ££££s. Finding somewhere to wear it = priceless!
