In time ; many of the dresses is through the couture collections reappear on red carpets worldwide. But you have to hand it to Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, who consider how dresses can look if they were actually made of, well, red carpet. After conceiving a second skin, tattooed ballerina dresses last season, Viktor & Rolf came up with what they call “a meditation on the contemporary obsession.” They wondered if it would be possible to force such a rigid material portable volumes, describing the knotting, wrapping and tying techniques as “spontaneous gestures.
The duo insisted it was neither positive nor negative subtext-that the intention was “without prejudice.” They admitted that the idea was to simply “a great challenge”. This time, however, the careful execution-whether the stack configuration in folds carved or cut and place the spots with such irregularity-balance concept helped deliberate and crafts. Except, that is, when the concept was too heavy in the physical sense; keep the material above the knee-length was more convincing than a waterfall weight of the carpet in the front of a long, vaguely Renaissance dress. The undone hair, make the natural, and oxfords carpet cover youth made it clear that it was not a dissertation on the glamor of Hollywood.
However, leopard, zebra, giraffe and patterns, all hand cut, shaved, and hand-applied with a netting glamorous pliant suggested primitive base (not to mention labor, these pieces took more than 300 hours to complete.) All these forms out, carrying blankets oversized bows, and bags with well-placed arm slots are not meant to play it safe starlets; is more likely to be collected and one day exhibited. But as models moseyed by tapis rouge track (supplied by the Dutch manufacturer Desso) to be shot by fashion photographers instead of paparazzi, crossed each other in the middle kingdoms and became the message. At the same time, a group of students from Amsterdam percussion provides rhythmic soundscape of an upper balcony, clapping according to a syncopated composition of Steve Reich. They took the plaudits after the hearing in a hurry. It felt appropriate, if not complacent.
