Viktor and Rolf
Some images from the fashion duo Viktor and Rolf's collections. The image above comes from the 'Doll' collection. The Russian Doll dress comprises of multiple layers of clothing one over the top of the other [think Gary Lineaker in the Walker's crisp advert!]. Viktor and Rolf's approach to the construction of clothing is often theatrical and Illustrative. There is a strong narrative to the garments with a desire to describe an unusual aspect of the clothings' functionality. This often results in strange and overblown forms, dissolving the traditional human silhouette.
