Designers Viktor & Rolf unveil a collection that parodies the obsession with celebrity
At times, it resembled a clip from a Robert Altman film. Bathed in red and strutting down the runway, the models appeared to be presenting a visual homage to the maverick of satire.
Dressed in blood red creations, Viktor & Rolf’s haute couture collection in Paris was pure theatre and a commentary on the obsession of celebrity. “We were thinking about red carpet dressing,” Viktor Horsting told The Wall Street Journal about the deep crimson and fuzzy collection.
Each dress resembled gowns actresses favour for red carpet appearances. Only with Viktor & Rolf, their creations were literally made of red carpet. The result was a show of contrasts: bows and drapes, gowns and mini-skirts, and, of course, biting satire.
